Tableau is ranked as the leading business intelligence product of 2017 based on peer reviews from real users in the IT Central Station community.

Tableau is ranked as the top business intelligence (BI) software of 2017 for enterprises based on peer reviews from real users in the IT Central Station community. Based on IT Central Station’s peer reviews and crowdsourced buyer intent data, Tableau was followed by QlikView, Oracle OBIEE, and Microsoft BI.

During the past year, over two million professionals, including those from 98% of the Fortune 100, have used IT Central Station’s crowdsourced reviews in their technology buying process. All reviews are validated as authentic through IT Central Station's triple authentication process. IT Central Station’s reviews are known for their depth and quality, with an average of 420 words per review.

IT Central Station members have written hundreds of BI software reviews, giving first hand feedback of the tools’ pros, cons, ROI, use case, and business value. For example, a Senior System Analyst at an insurance company writes in his review: “Tableau has provided the organisation a means to allow business people to explore their data at their pace. They can either review the reports online, or on their Tableau Reader or they can download it into other formats for use in data analysis. The key insights and graphic representations through the dashboards has also provided them a quick and painless overview of their current status, whatever that may be.”
