Does anyone know when Tableau will introduce Web Service as a connection option? We are looking to introduce Tableau into our BI stack but the problem we are encountering is that there really is no good way to tap into our BO universe semantic layer. I don't expect that Tableau will ever be able to source directly from a BO universe but a web service would be a very good option. The only thing available to us now is to create a Live Office connection and use Excel as a conduit b/w Tableau and BO Universe which is not ideal. Any insight would be very helpful. Tx
I'm not able to say when/if this will be added to Tableau. However, this is a good one to add to the Ideas section http://community.tableau.com/community/ideas so that some of our developers see it is a wanted data source!
