Deciding which BI solution to implement for your enterprise? If Tableau and/or Qlik are among your options, take a look at how InetSoft compares to these competitors.
InetSoft is a Java-based application that can be run on any operating system, such as Windows, Linux, Solaris, HP Unix, and Mac OS. Tableau and Qlik are Windows centric and can only be run on Microsoft Windows operating systems.
InetSoft only requires a one-time installation process and can be quickly deployed with minimal IT training. Being a zero-client web-based platform, the BI application maximizes self-service to its users. For visualization design, Tableau only provides a thick desktop developer tool that must transfer data from the web server onto the desktop, requiring a desktop plugin.
InetSoft’s empowers self-service to its users for all InetSoft features, including data mashup, reporting and dashboarding. Qlik’s customizations are restricted for dashboard usage and all other functions need to be performed via a Windows desktop tool.
