An Easy to Learn Alternative to Tableau
InetSoft's solution is known for being easy to deploy, so it's no surprise that InetSoft beat Tableau in Ease of Use, Setup, and Administration. The ease and flexibility of the InetSoft platform is often reflected in the relatively fast deployment time; InetSoft customers appreciate that the InetSoft platform can be deployed in a matter of hours, as opposed to deployments stretching on for weeks that are typical of other BI products.
Self service is a particular focus of InetSoft, and in that area InetSoft outranked Tableau in Calculated Fields, Data Column Filtering, Search, and Collaboration/Workflow. InetSoft's proprietary data worksheet makes data alterations, mashups, and reformatting easy to accomplish, without having to mess with code.
This convenience and ease of use extends to InetSoft's reporting interface, which won on Steps to Answer, Scorecards, Data Transformation, Data Modeling, WYSIWYG Report Design, and Integration Apis.
