The M2 data value chain
Part 1: Data Purpose and Data Visualization
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 avoid redundant content on your server.
Tableau Server Stats lets you monitor activity on your Tableau Server. You can get detailed insights 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 for the customer's Tableau infrastructure in prefabricated templates and to deploy them automatically. Among other things, this enables the creation of identical environments for testing and development.
Export your dashboard content with one click - convenient and fully comprehensive
The Excel Export tool allows you to download all the data used in a Tableau dashboard (data from all sheets and the included visualizations). Data formats are recognized and correctly formatted, allowing further calculation without cumbersome formatting in Excel.
