The time we are in, everything is on the internet, from shopping to jobs to banking to finance, there are very few things that are not functioning on the web, and this huge amount of functions is being worked out on the internet because we have huge amounts of data existing on every platform. A business or individual can easily remain successful by using this data since they can personalize it according to their target audience and serve them better.
Salesforce Tableau Cloud is a platform that helps users understand and visualize data in a format that is presented with better clarity and is easier to understand for everyone.
So by now, we have understood on a broader aspect what exactly Tableau is. We understood that Tableau offers us different products and solutions to deal with and play around with data that users can utilize. All this is available in Tableau on-premise version. What if we get all these features permanently equipped in our system like a fully-hosted cloud solution similar to Salesforce Sales Cloud or Salesforce Service Cloud?
Well, Salesforce fulfilled users’ wishes by coming up with Tableau Cloud.
Yes, you heard it right!
Salesforce added a new member to its fleet of the cloud for customers: Salesforce Tableau Cloud. On May 17, at the annual Tableau Conference, when Salesforce introduced the Salesforce Tableau Cloud to provide customers with all the services of Tableau at an enterprise scale.
The Tableau Cloud developed will empower the customers to perform faster calculations and processing for better data-driven decisions. It is idealized and designed so that it can be accommodated in any enterprise architecture keeping all the industry standards in the correct places of functioning.
Tableau Cloud is a step towards the Salesforce ideology of Customer 360, providing customers with actionable insights that are accessible from anywhere at any time.
After understanding Salesforce Tableau Cloud, it’s time to discover what the features of the Tableau Cloud holds for its users.
Language of data is not a new language that we have to learn to work on Salesforce Tableau Cloud, but an ideology that signifies finding insights and patterns in data the users use or obtain. The Tableau team understood that it was difficult for the users to speak the data language, so they had to make the data speak so that the users understood easily. Still, making data speak people’s language is even more complex. To solve this problem, they have introduced data stories that provide easy-to-understand explanations and story writing for data, helping users better understand the underlying patterns and insights.
The story writing feature of data stories makes it easy for business users to access data as they won’t need to get the dashboard’s visualizations explained any further since stories will have the gist of the information that can be drawn as insight from a visualization.
These are not the accelerators that we have in our cars that are being discussed, but they are the accelerators available in Salesforce Tableau Cloud to be used as an enhancement. Tableau accelerators are ready-made dashboards where organizations can quickly insert data and obtain insights.
These accelerators can be developed and launched over Tableau Exchange as well. Coming to what Tableau Exchange is, it’s just like the Salesforce App Exchange. It is the place for all the extensions of the Tableau platform, and there are 100+ accelerators available on the Tableau Exchange.
The announcement of Salesforce Tableau Cloud even invited the presence of the Advanced Management feature in Tableau Cloud, which is to be equipped in the coming release. Advance Management promises to enhance agility and time utilization by bringing the functioning of manageability, security, and scalability together. It even allows multiple operational insight features to administrators by providing an Activity log that presents detailed information about adoption and performance.
It is due to the offering of Advance Management that the security has been enhanced as now we can get customer-managed encryption keys which adds up a layer of protection while aligning with the compliance standards of businesses.
Now, in the Salesforce Tableau Cloud, we have Einstein Discovery’s AI intelligence, which will help users make more accurate decisions faster. Using Model Builder, teams can build more efficient predictive models and gain insights from their data rather than being stuck in the “what is the data all about?” phase.
Amalgamating Einstein Discovery and Einstein AI practices to Tableau will provide advanced solutions for users which can help them get analytical insights without leaving their Salesforce workflows.
Tableau Cloud has solutions designed to deal with the current data and many data users will generate in the future. The new Salesforce Tableau Cloud understands users’ requirements and pain points. It has developed solutions accordingly, be it a model builder making designing models easier or generating ready-made dashboards that process data immediately, i.e., the moment data is inserted and present the result in a visualized format.
With the new Salesforce Tableau Cloud, people understand, share, and distribute data in a more accessible way by automatically adding plain-language explanations. Many industries or enterprises can quickly deliver insight and value from data with the ready-to-use, customizable dashboards of Tableau Accelerator. Tableau customers manage, scale, and secure the deep insights of analytics more effectively through Tableau Advanced Management. People will make better decisions faster with more confidence as Tableau Cloud brings the artificial intelligence and machine learning of Einstein Discovery. Individuals to large organizations worldwide prefer to use the new Tableau’s advanced analytics.
