Dear business managers,
As far as i know there are 4-5 applications developed by independent companies able to extract, process, analyze and save data in Tableau Data Engine format aka .tde
If a Tableau's customer is looking for an ETL/ETA tool able to export data as .tde then check out the products from Tamas Foldi (Talend Exchange), Alteryx , Rapid Insight, TIQ Solutions GmbH, Theobald Software GmbH and Lavastorm plus MarkLogic & Adobe Analytics
I did a short research today and my suggestion is to contact officially the following firms, establish a business relationship and incorporate Tableau technology in order to expand end users options and choices in the ETL field.
Question from Tableau program manager:How many extracts do you have on your Tableau Server?
I had this idea for Tableau board of directors - Open source .TDE specs if you agree please vote up. Thanks.
