CMO - TaskEasy
Tableau is very powerful. It’s not for amateurs but for data scientists. It provides valuable insights.
Marketing Director - FreshGrade
Tableau is for our business intelligence. We can’t use their cloud based service because it isn’t HIPAA compliant, so we’re using the desktop version, which is not ideal. The desktop version makes it harder to collaborate and onboard because everyone has to install it into their computer.

4%Stacklist Startups Are Using Tableau
Tableau is a powerful tool for organizing and analyzing the data from your other business intelligence and analytics platforms. Though it doesn’t gather the information itself, it’s an extraordinarily customizable service that allows you to visualize your company’s data in the way that’s most valuable to you. Tableau boasts optimized connections with nearly any data source, including Amazon Redshift, Hadoop and cloud data, which means you can analyze data where it resides, without having to create a separate platform.
Tableau is used exclusively by Series B and Growth companies, partially because of its expensive licensing, and partially because smaller companies don’t need such a powerful tool. Users appreciate its flexibility and high level of customization, which is optimal for startups with very specific data needs.
Tableau has both desktop and online versions, as well as a unique server option. The desktop Personal edition goes for a one-time fee of $999, while the Professional edition costs $1,999. Note that these prices allow for only one user. Tableau’s online version costs $500 per user per year, and the Server package requires you to contact the company for a quote.
