M2 Solutions

Our solutions for your requirements

The Technology division, responsible for the development, operation and further development of our tools, is the second core area of the company alongside Consulting. On this page you will find an overview of our developed solutions, which are in daily use by customers from various industries.

Tableau Toolbox

The Tableau Toolbox contains innovative developments that simplify and automate your work processes by using useful functions.

Part of the toolbox are technologies for the integration and use of extensions and for the creation of mail bursts. Both tools are available individually or in combination.

The toolbox can be installed parallel to running Tableau Server instances or on separate servers and can be used via the web browser.

Tableau Portal

The portal offers our customers the possibility to present their tableau dashboards in a simple, elegant and easy to use website with the help of our M2 Tableau Connection Manager.

Normally, users of tableau Dashboards have to log on to the tableau server and search for their dashboard there.

The portal allows you to categorize the Dashboards by content or topic to facilitate this process. Furthermore, you have the possibility to adapt the design of the M2 Portal to the corporate identity of your company.

Kurzarbeit App

Do you need support in calculating various short-time work scenarios? We help you with our M2 short-time work app.

Further products

The solutions we develop are efficient productivity tools that add useful functions to your Tableau Server.

The analysis of server activities as well as the contents and Data sources published there are just as much a part of this as the comfortable Excel export of the contents of your Tableau Dashboards.

Data Catalog Tool

With the Data Catalog Tool you can analyze all content published on your Tableau Server. All workbook and Data source metadata can be loaded, analyzed and systemically structured. This automated process helps you to efficiently identify redundancies on your server.

Tableau Housekeeping Tool

With the Tableau Housekeeping Tool you always have an overview of which workbooks and Data sources are no longer used on your Tableau Server. The tool informs users that the content will be removed if it is not updated. This helps you to avoid redundant content on your server.

Tableau Server Stats

With Tableau Server Stats, you can monitor activity on your Tableau Server. You can get detailed insight into the usage of your workbooks, such as the popularity of your workbooks, how many workbooks are published and how often a workbook is consumed.


M2 has extensive expertise with Amazon Cloud Services. With Terraform it is possible to map the various requirements of the customer's Tableau infrastructure in pre-defined templates and to deploy them automatically. This enables, among other things, the creation of identical environments for testing and development.


Excel Tool

Export your Dashboard content with one click - convenient and complete.

The Excel export tool allows you to download all Data used in a Tableau Dashboard (data from all sheets and the visualizations they contain). Data formats are recognized and correctly formatted so that you can continue calculating without cumbersome formatting in Excel.

Tableau Geo Package

User-defined cards for Tableau

The M2 Tableau Geopackaging Tool offers the possibility to implement custom maps on both Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server. Here are some examples how you can use the Geopackaging Tool in your Tableau Dashboards:

  • You can use it to display your sales territories on the map
  • You can give existing regions special names or identification numbers
  • The postcode does not have to be the last level of detail. You can make your maps as precise as you like!
