Are You Wasting Time Transferring Data from OBIEE to Tableau?

According to Information Age, artificial intelligence is soon set to far outweigh slower manual services that humans provide: 2017 is set to be the year of automation. In particular, administrative and reporting work have been sought out as two of the top industries in which automated processes have seen more efficient and profitable results in comparison to manual tasking alone. Whilst bots can perform tasks at an accelerated level which ultimately saves you time and money, studies have also found that human error is the primary cause accountable for data loss.

Luckily, cost-effective business automation tools can help your systems flourish, and allow you to avoid being part of those statistics – like Tableau. Rather than developing a custom-made product through SQL scripts, which can increase your risk of errors in manually created .XLS files and also increase the pressure on your QA team for UAT testing, utilizing a ready-made platform like BI Connector to transfer data from OBIEE to Tableau will ultimately save you time, money, and dramatically reduce risks.

Many businesses know that accounting for manual tasks can take weeks or even months; instead, BI Connector’s automated OBIEE data reading can transform into logs within minutes, which ultimately allows you make business decisions faster.

Furthermore, BI Connector also adopts the same OBIEE security model, which means users see only the reports and data which they are permitted to see.

Make Transferring Data From OBIEE to Tableau Efficient

Manual spreadsheet creation is time-consuming, onerous, and a wasteful use of employees’ time. Processes such as excel report creation are outmoded and potentially dangerous to your data, especially with those identified links to human error and potential malware issues we mentioned before.

With automated scheduling, BI Connector connects Tableau to OBIEE’s presentation layers, allowing you to reuse subject areas and report connectors. In turn, this restates existing business logic; allowing Tableau users to visualize the business data in OBIEE without any changes to OBIEE. Dissipative procedures are eliminated, and therefore human error is vastly reduced, if not also eliminated.

Fundamentally, by connecting to OBIEE to Tableau with your own credentials using published data sources and worksheets, any Tableau user can connect via BI Connector to access and publish worksheets. BI Connector then translates Tableau queries to OBIEE queries with added optimization, using a series of automated modules for sweeping data reads to dramatically enhance and improve workflow systems. This ultimately means that the path between data input and explicit analysis reading needn’t be part of the burdensome daily grind any longer.

In this rapidly evolving technology era, automated scheduling and the sending of Tableau reports is probably only one small aspect of motorized actions which are due to take over in the very near future. What we do know is that data science is one of the most rapidly expanding technology industries; so if you’re still wasting time manually creating spreadsheets and tableau reports, you might well be missing out on valuable data intellect, which is becoming more readily available as we speak.
