      Agenda: Tableau Server Architecture, Configuration Demo and Governance Process

      When you ramp up Tableau server to thousand users, there are a lot of things to think about such as scalability, HA, security and data governance. This session will focus on the challenges related to large deployments of self-services BI products. It will focus on how to improve the technology, people and processes in order to effectively implement Tableau internally.

      • HA clusters, hardware configurations, SSO, load balancer
      • Monitoring (TabMon, customized admin views)
      • Alerts (performance alerts, extracts failure alerts)
      • How to distribute admin work (sites, site admin)
      • Release or publishing process
      • Workbook performance management process
      • Data governance process
