"Great add-on to Tableau Desktop for cleaning datasets"

What do you like best?

Our company has found this really useful in cleaning and aggregating datasets in the foreground, then bringing them into Tableau Desktop. Some of our uses have been to take daily data, aggregate to monthly averages and then connect that with other monthly data. Very user-friendly and you can see how much of your data successfully matches up as you go.

What do you dislike?

Nothing, the interface is very user friendly and this program makes using Tableau much easier and more efficient. We have found that by cleaning and aggregating the data before opening it in Tableau Desktop, we have been able to avoid using "fixed" and other level of detail expressions that can make subsequent actions difficult.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

See above. Our main business problem this is solving is just cleaning and organising our data so that we can trust what we are seeing in Tableau Desktop

"Using Tableau Prep for the eyes of the student"

What do you like best?

The tableau prep has a good tutorial videos which explain how to use their product efficiently, and their community is very active in responding to the questions and comments of its users. The product is very self-explanatory for the starters.

What do you dislike?

Even though the tutorial videos are quite adequate, some of the features and options are very confusing and the flow diagrams are a bit confusing for the starters. Good extensive knowledge of data prepping is required before using the tool

Recommendations to others considering the product:

First, start with the tableau desktop version to see whether you really require to use the tableau prep because in most situations the data cleaning can be performed using the desktop version.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used the tool to connect the data from the database and for prepping the data for performing the exploratory data analysis and data visualization using tableau desktop version. The benefits I have realized is imputing the null values, cleaning the data such as renaming the columns, changing the data types of the columns are very easy and simple to use.

"It is a good idea, but it needs to be improved to reach competitors level"

What do you like best?

It is very nice that they are trying to integrate all Tableau products using the same look and feel and features that you already know from Tableau desktop, that allows to have everything in one single place and using a single product for all your data needs, and the fact that it is free if you have your desktop license is awesome!

What do you dislike?

The capabilities for blending and processing are not the best, performance needs to improve, since although its competitors are pricey, when you are looking yo work with large amounts of data, you need an app that helps you in the best possible way

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it some time and I think they will improve the performance issues and they will add more features that are going to make it grow

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data blending and data processing, mainly for tableau reports, so it is very nice to have your data being processed and visualized within the same products
