M2 Solutions

Our solutions for your needs

The Technology division, responsible for the development, operation and further development of our tools, forms 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 a wide range of industries.

Tableau Toolbox

The Tableau Toolbox contains innovative developments that simplify and automate your workflows through the use of useful functions.

Part of the Toolbox are technologies to integrate and use Tableau Writeback Extensions and to create mail bursts. Both tools are available individually or in combination.

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

Tableau Portal

The portal offers our customers the ability to easily display their Tableau dashboards on a simple, elegant and easy-to-use website using our M2 Tableau Connection Manager.

Normally, Tableau dashboard users have to log in to Tableau Server and search for their dashboard there.

The portal allows categorization of dashboards by content or topic to facilitate this process. In addition, you have the option to customize the design of the M2 portal to match your company's corporate identity.

Other products

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

The analysis of server activities and the content and data sources published there are just as much a part of this as the convenient Excel export of the content of your Tableau dashboards.

Data Catalog Tool

The Data Catalog tool allows you to 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 efficiently identify redundancies on your server.

Tableau Housekeeping Tool

Mit dem Tableau Housekeeping Tool haben Sie stets im Überblick, welche Workbooks und Datenquellen auf Ihrem Tableau-Server nicht mehr verwendet werden. Das Tool informiert die User, dass der Inhalt entfernt wird, sollte er nicht aktualisiert werden. Dies hilft Ihnen, redundante Inhalte auf Ihrem Server zu vermeiden.

Tableau Server Stats

Mit Tableau Server Stats können Sie Aktivitäten auf Ihrem Tabelau-Server überwachen. Sie können detaillierte Einblicke in die Verwendung Ihrer Arbeitsmappen erhalten, wie z.B. die Beliebtheit Ihrer Workbooks, wie viele Workbooks veröffentlicht werden und wie oft ein Workbook konsumiert wird.


M2 hat umfangreiche Expertiese mit Amazon Cloud Services. Mit Terraform ist es möglich, die verschiedenen Anforderungen an die Tableau-Infrastruktur des Kunden in über vorgefertigten Templates abzubilden und automatisiert zu deployen. Das ermöglicht unter u.a. den Aufbau identischer Umgebungen für Test und Entwicklung.
