I work in BI/DW and looking for a Mobile BI tool that would meet our requirements. I have used another app (PushBI) but ended up giving up on it as it didn't do what we wanted. I would like to clarify my technical query. This query is not about what PushBI can do but rather to explore if Tableau can achieve it.
Here is the scenario
We have a hierarchy of users/managers (National, State, City) who can access various BI reports. I want to apply the same hierarchy for mobile BI application and let them access Sales, GP (for example) KPIs of their area. From time to time we would have a manager is moved from one city to another or become state manager (promoted). Hence his/her permissions would either be elevated or moved to KPI of another city/state. My questions are
The dilemma we had with PushBI was, initially we had to create KPI for each manager, state manager, national manager and then if their position change then modify the KPI manually before it can be updated to mobile devices.
Thanks in advance.
Tableau will allow you to create however many KPIs you need to express the values you're working with. After that is done, you can use Tableau's security to allow/disallow each user to see a KPI based on user and/or group membership. This will be a little bit more flexible for you.
Hope this helps!
