Can we integrate tableau with civicrm to get enhanced report functionalities?
I use Tableau to enhance the reporting possibilities of CiviCRM.
Tableau can connect to many different data sources. I use a SQL connection to this, and this gives me full access to all the data tables in CiviCRM. I can then use Tableau to make interesting connections between different tables in an easy way.
I have not explored API connection, but I think that would be just as possible as SQL connection.
Yes you can, I know one CiviCRM user that uses Tableau to get his data reports from CiviCRM. I expect he will answer to this post too, his name here is Flying
