Is Tableau right for you?
Organizations or individuals with small amounts of data can often get by using spreadsheet-style data analysis; however, once they scale, the complexity or volume of data interrelationships outgrow the capabilities of spreadsheets, and tools like Tableau become very attractive.
Data scale is not the only reason to consider a solution like Tableau. One of the biggest challenges of analyzing data in Excel today is that organizational data is often spread across cloud-hosted platforms and out of reach. Tableau solves this problem through connectors that know how to report on data not just in databases but also through API integrations with many popular cloud platforms.
