Why customers choose Tableau over Qlik Sense
Tableau enables everyone to freely explore data and ask questions in an intuitive way.
Tableau products are designed to put the user first, making real-world “aha” moments easier to discover through powerful, visual analysis. And in Tableau, you can dig deeper into an outlier or iterate on your discovery without breaking the flow of analysis.
You can create dashboards with Qlik Sense or Tableau, but the greatest difference is in the way you experience insights through analysis. With Tableau, the end goal of your analysis is not a dashboard—it’s a better understanding of your data.
Explore all of your data in Tableau
Tableau doesn’t force users to navigate between a “design” and “view” mode. Immediate visual response promotes discovery, rather than inhibiting it. The wide range of built-in analytic capabilities means you spend less time worrying about manually creating calculations, designing visualizations, and formatting dashboards and more time asking questions of your data, without the need for complex calculations or scripting.
With Tableau, everyone is empowered to explore all of your data through a powerful, easy-to-use interface.Watch video
Tableau has the most flexibility and choice
Tableau is a fully integrated and extensible platform that utilizes your existing data strategy, accessing live data or bringing it into memory—and provides the ability to switch between the two at any time during your analysis.
Deployment options: Deploy Tableau on-premises, on the public cloud on Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, or Google Cloud Platform, or on Tableau Online, our fully-managed cloud platform, on Windows, or on Linux.
Data connections: From databases and files and to cloud applications, Tableau supports 67 native connections, including live connections for real-time insights, or data extracts powered by Hyper.
Flexible pricing model: Tableau’s role-based pricing gives organizations the ability to give users three different roles for different analytical use cases, giving users the ability to step up from a consumer role without the need to license the entire product.
Advanced analytics for everyone
Advanced analytics capabilities—like trend lines, clustering, confidence intervals, and forecasting—are native functionality of Tableau. Built-in advanced analytics in Tableau help you drill through the data without calculations or scripting in order to find meaningful insights.Watch video
