Tableau not only eases data exploration, management, discovery, and insights-sharing, its significance in developing powerful and meaningful analyses make it a great choice for data analytics challenges.

Together, DataGalaxy’s Data Knowledge Catalog and Tableau help easily import your existing data sets to receive intuitive insights with our powerful, all-in-one data management platform.

Why Use DataGalaxy with Tableau?

Main problems

Like many database services, Tableau provides users with a lot of creative flexibility, but the tool itself can quickly become overwhelming for users performing specific business matters.

Often, the answers to users’ questions are somewhere in the data set, but it’s difficult understanding where to begin to look for them.

  • Which workbook should I use?
  • How can I ensure that the metrics displayed in the annual financial dashboard are based on a sanitized and referenced source?
  • And what about PII? Can I safely share this report content with our Sales team?

Let’s face it – Information like this can’t be found easily in Tableau. Data catalogs and  metadata management tools give users the ability to dive deeper into their data than using Looker alone.

lightning fast online start

Get started in less than 10 seconds

There’s no need for a complex architecture deployment: DataGalaxy is shipped with a Tableau online connector already integrated.

We’ll guide you to setting up or connecting your existing Looker account so you’re good to go as fast as possible! Even better, schedule the import process to stay up-to-date with changes made in Tableau by anyone on your team.

Tableau insights gathering

Start managing your Tableau assets

Check out this sample of what you can see on The Data Knowledge Catalog once your import is complete!

From here, your team can start adding key metadata to govern your assets, including accountable people, categorization tags, confidentiality levels… whatever works best for you! 

Visualize insightful lineages

Once your Tableau assets are synchronized, internal and external dependencies will be created and you can start exploring a company’s scoped lineage.

Stay connected with Tableau

Assets imported in DataGalaxy are linked to the corresponding Tableau objects by a URL, which can therefore be opened directly from the platform.

Identify critical lineage paths

Because relationships can become complex and numerous, privileged links can be defined as “golden,” keeping you focused and on the right track.

Common business vocabulary

Data governance is all about using a common business vocabulary! DataGalaxy’s Business Glossary helps users automatically generate a universal language from all their data sources, keeping teams organized and decisions up-to-date.

Metabot: Your AI data steward

Our AI data steward Metabot will help you remove redundancies, analyze specific data points, and create relevant business terms from your looker assets. Metabot can also link existing business definitions with imported metadata to keep everyone on the same page.

Browser extensions

Our Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browser extensions give you powerful search and browsing capabilities without ever needing to leave your internet browser – Take that, Wikipedia!
