    Corporate Culture:  Moving From Tabular Reports To Tableau

    Daniel  Paduck

      Hi,

       

      We are new to Tableau and we are starting developing our first round of Tableau dashboards.  Now, our issue, is that since our users are used to seeing data in tabular format (Excel/SSRS based) they also want the Tableau dashboards to mimic this.  I understand that this is not the best use of Tableau.  With that being said, I am curious as to how other implementations of Tableau went as far as user adoption from the old style of reporting (tabular) to Tableau. Did it takes months, year, years?  Was it difficult for users to understand the benefits of Tableau or use Tableau in general? Any insights would be appreciated.

       

      Thanks!
