Looking for the essential overview of Tableau for IT Managers? Last month we published Tableau for the Enterprise: An Overview for IT. In it you can find answers to questions such as:
How many authentication models does Tableau support?
A: Three: Microsoft Active Directory, local authentication, and trusted tickets. (p.5)
Can Tableau Server run on a Virtual Machine or in the cloud?
A: Yes. (p.5).
Does Tableau Server connect directly to data or work in-memory?
A: Either, depending on what you need. (p. 8-9)
There are also great diagrams to help you understand Tableau's architecture, metadata model, and more.
In fact, this whitepaper is loaded with information that you could use for a rousing night of Tableau Trivia. A full list of topics covered is:
- Tableau Architecture
- Deployment Models
- System Administration
