To make a long story short…
Klipfolio is a good alternative to Tableau if: You and your team want to continuously monitor data as it comes in from your various services.
Tableau is a good alternative to Klipfolio if: You’re a data analyst at a large entreprise with a huge, static dataset that you want to analyze.
We’re not shy to admit it - there are certain use cases where Tableau would actually be a better fit for some companies! But for where Tableau doesn’t have a solution, Klipfolio has your back.
Tableau is an incredibly powerful tool that provides a platform where it’s users can do a deep analysis into their static data. Klipfolio, on the other hand, provides a flexible, continuous update on how your business is doing - from multiple angles. Even better? It enables self-service reporting, meaning the people in your company can find their reports and leave you to focus on your more interesting and important tasks.
The power of using the two tools in tandem to complement each other? Insane.
How can Klipfolio boost your reporting power with Tableau?
The most common Tableau use case is the extracting of data from a database connector, building a “Sheet”, then conducting a deep analysis on the static data that has been exported.
Tableau excels in this area in particular. The platform also offers a selection of beautiful visualization options, allowing for storytelling through data.
So… Where does Klipfolio come in?
While Tableau puts its emphasis on static reports, Klipfolio is all about real-time data. With 100s of integrations with applications that businesses use every week, day, hour, and minute, Klipfolio dashboards update users with how their KPIs are performing and if they are hitting targets.
Real-time Reporting Dashboards
No matter your department, industry, or role, if you want to be successful, data should be informing all - if not most - of your decisions. Tableau's deep analysis can help you make some of the big ones, but when it comes to your everyday, week, or month you need data that is up to date. These are just a few of the dashboards our team uses on a daily or weekly basis to help them reach their goals and monitor their performance.
