What if your Tableau users could have instant access to data that has already been modeled in MicroStrategy?
All the ease-of-use of Tableau
All the scalability, security and governance of MicroStrategy’s metadata
With no manual extraction or SQL
What is the Southport Web Data Connector for Tableau?
The Web Data Connector for Tableau leverages the MicroStrategy SDK to bring the best of two competing worlds to our customers: The ease-of-use and self-service capabilities of Tableau and the enterprise BI platform capabilities of MicroStrategy. With our plug-in, Tableau users can instantly begin accessing the MicroStrategy metadata to use existing reports and cubes as data sources for ad-hoc analysis in Tableau.
Ease of Use
Allow your users to conduct analysis using Tableau. Don’t waste time training on a new interface or self-service tool.
Cost Savings for IT and faster time to value
Recapture the weeks/month of time your users spend manually collecting data for analysis. Free your IT resources from the burden of building custom extracts to support self-service.
Reduce the cost and risk associated with the proliferation of manual extracts. Leverage MicroStrategy’s single metadata to deliver a ad-hoc analysis to your users based on a “single version of the truth” semantic layer.
Scalability and Governance
Underpin your Tableau UI with the enterprise platform capabilities of MicroStrategy to achieve significant gains in scalability and security.
