    Large datasets in tableau

    Vishnu Shankar

      Hello guys,

       

      I have a query regarding tableau data handling capacity. Is tableau can handle 3 terabytes of data when directly connected with sap?

          Do you plan to display 3TB worth of data on your viz?

          Tableau is meant to deal with aggregated data so if all goes well it should never deal with that amount of data. If you are going to build a dashboard, for example "monthly sales in 2015" - Tableau will only get 12 numbers back and your backend will do all the heavy-lifting and number crunching.
