Why do I need Tableau integration?

Tableau is a popular business intelligence tool that is easy to use. Many businesses use Tableau due to its data visualization capabilities. No coding skills are required to create charts and data stories in Tableau. Using connectors to transfer data tables in Tableau, you can automatically sync and load all your data for insightful analytics, visualizations, and recommendations. Here is why Tableau integration is imperative for your business:


Communicate data with ease

Tableau is popular for its business charts and data stories features. Visual effects are a powerful way to simplify and communicate data. Graphs, maps, and summary tables can transform how your audience consumes and understands data. Tableau enables you to customize worksheets, dashboards, and data stories for effective communication. When you import data into Tableau using appropriate Tableau data connectors, you can generate powerful reports for all audiences.


Automated analytics and reporting

The easiest way to analyze periodic data in Tableau is to connect the platform with your data source using a no-code connector. When new data is added to the data source, Tableau updates the reports automatically. The dataflow feature in Tableau makes it possible to automate periodic reporting using dashboards. Having a Tableau connector simplifies the work by ensuring that the data structure in the data source is maintained. The data in the Tableau warehouse is transformed to fit the analytics requirements.


Real-time analytics using Tableau big data connectors

Tableau connectors are a powerful way to ensure data is sent to automated Tableau analytics in real-time. With Tableau Data Management solutions, your enterprise only needs to identify the right data connectors for real-time updates. You can subsequently achieve more business goals by generating Tableau reports in real-time.





What is Tableau?

Tableau is a business intelligence analytics tool used to visualize data. Tableau synchronizes and generates charts and trends from data stored on servers or data files like Microsoft Excel. Once the data source is connected, Tableau auto-detects the data tables. If a reporting template is prebuilt, Tableau automatically generates the report. If a template is not readily available for the dataset, the analyst builds visualizations using interactive click-through commands. The visuals are then organized into dashboards, which can be pieced into data stories. Tableau is easy to use and effective in data presentation.


What are Tableau connectors?

Tableau connectors are tools that export your data from multiple data sources. The connectors transfer data from your ERP, CRM, accounting, and marketing systems, among other on-premise and off-premise sources. The data is sent to Tableau Desktop or Tableau Server. The connectors extract data, transform it into required formats, and then load it to a hub that Tableau can access. Tableau automatically detects when new data is added to the hub. Subsequently, Tableau regenerates periodic reports automatically. The connectors are pre-built and require no coding skills.


How much does Tableau cost?

Tableau is offered at various pricing options. A free trial version is available for a limited time. There is a free version, Tableau Public, where all data is saved publicly. For the paid options, you can select from three versions of Tableau Desktop starting from $15 per user per month in Tableau Viewer. The next plan is Tableau Explorer, starting from $42. The most popular plan is Tableau Creator, which starts at $75. All the plans are billed annually. The last plan is Tableau Enterprise. The price of Tableau Enterprise is not published online. However, you can submit a request for information to Tableau. A quotation will be sent to you depending on how you intend to use Tableau, including whether you want to host Tableau in-house, use Tableau Server, or use Tableau Data Management services. Tableau Enterprise features allow you to automatically sync more data, automate reports, and fully control the data and metadata.
