WHY CHOOSING TABLEAU FOR SALESFORCE MAKES GOOD SENSE:
Tableau is a good choice as a third-party analytics tool when your reporting requirements exceed the capabilities that are native to Salesforce. For starters, the two platforms are designed to work together — Tableau visuals can be embedded within the Salesforce application. Data can be securely passed back and forth so that Tableau vizzes are automatically customized to each account or opportunity.
Using Tableau to do Salesforce reporting offers multiple business benefits:
Full Information Availability:
Tableau has built-in integration with Salesforce, allowing Tableau reports and dashboards to be embedded within the Salesforce application itself. More important, Tableau can pull in data from all pertinent sources; it is not limited to only the data that resides in Salesforce. The implications of this are significant: sales reps and management can have full information when making sales strategy decisions.
Tableau can access all types of sales information including but not limited to

Self-Service Analysis and Visualization:
Tableau has democratized information analysis. With a focus on ease-of-use, Tableau has made it possible for non-IT people to analyze and visualize data themselves. This availability drives informed decision-making to all areas of the company and replaces gut-feel decision-making.
Salesforce reporting is not able to combine data across Salesforce modules. For instance, it cannot display marketing engagements and pipeline growth on the same chart. Tableau does this type of data blending natively.
Knowledge and Skill Sharing:
Since Salesforce reporting is limited to Salesforce data, it is not a candidate to be the standard tool throughout an organization. Tableau has no data limitations and can be the familiar standard for all departments in the company.
In August 2019, Salesforce, a leading cloud-based customer relationship management platform, bought Tableau for $15.3 billion.
Tableau fills a competitive gap for Salesforce that Einstein Analytics hasn’t filled. Einstein Analytics (which originated as Salesforce Wave Analytics in 2014) is still very new, and it’s not widely adopted by Salesforce customers. What’s more, Einstein Analytics has been largely aimed at CRM-centric analytic needs, whereas Tableau gives it broad, multi-purpose analytical capabilities that are already widely adopted and highly regarded.
