I am not really sure what your question is. What do you mean by tool? Tableau is the front end for creating and consuming dashboards, so do you mean the database or datasource? Can you give some example tools?
Thank you for your answer and questions, which helped to make my reply to you.
I am not an IT developer and apology for asking an unprofessional question, using wording like Teableu tool instead of Teableu method/IT support to express sales & purchasing figures on reports. For me creating dashboards is sort of new, creative way to show what the rest want to see as you can use different options - tabs\icons\tools to create visualization of the requested data. This is the biggest advantage & the beauty of Tableau for me. It is such a flexible system for people like me to explore a new IT world.
Tableau is also a good datasourse as for me it is like a new channel for exchanging information, like a social network and the same time it has a lot of options to create and organize the data.
I am sorry if I wasn't clear enough but I haven't worked in IT although this I like dealing with data transparency.
No worries, everyone is at different levels and has different areas of expertise. I am just trying to ascertain how I can help.
