Deploy, monitor and maintain your modern analytics platform

Given that analytics become mission-critical, deployments must be agile by operating on iterative, repeatable processes that begin with establishing a baseline architecture for a secure, stable and trusted server platform. The Agility workstream is focused on deployment, monitoring and maintenance. These are typically IT-led efforts that rely heavily on understanding the broader technical requirements and overall business strategy.


Using the information collected during the discovery phase, you’ll build, right-size and secure your modern analytics environment. This includes installing and configuring software, deploying client applications, licensing users and integrating Tableau with your existing technologies according to your enterprise standards and processes.

This topic covers:

  • Tableau Server architecture
  • Hardware platform
  • Authentication and authorisation
  • Network communications
  • Network topologies
  • Data strategy
  • Tableau Server add-ons
  • External services
  • Extensibility
  • Client software



You’ll put the processes in place for proactive hardware and application monitoring to maintain sufficient availability, capacity and headroom while minimising resource contention. Because modern BI platforms often see fast growth, you will need to assess server utilisation and user engagement – and likely even change your topology – more frequently than with other enterprise technology platforms. Over time, you may even delegate some responsibilities between server and site administrators.

This topic covers:

  • Administrative roles and responsibilities
  • Hardware monitoring
  • Built-in alerts
  • Tableau Server process status
  • Administrative views
  • Troubleshooting
  • Resource Monitoring Tool incidents



You’ll operationalise change management processes to support the increased use of analytics, including performance tuning, load testing, capacity planning and upgrades. Monitoring data will inform many of your maintenance activities. You may employ test environments and participate in beta programmes to help you plan and deliver upgrades.

This topic covers:

  • Active Directory synchronisation
  • Backup and restore
  • Database maintenance
  • Load testing
  • Capacity planning
  • Resource management
  • Upgrades

"I think where Tableau has been most helpful with respect to our growth is creating simplicity in scaling. Once data is organised, it’s very easy to add another small multiple in our stack of visualisations related to a specific region."
