Here we have listed the points that need to be considered when using Tableau Pulse:

Cleansing and curation of data sources

  • Tableau Pulse allows you to create metrics from any published data source.
  • Selecting the right source is easy in demo environments, but can be a challenge in large instances.
  • If a larger number of data sources underlie the current Tableau Cloud instance, finding the desired sources may become more difficult.


Structuring of data sources

  • Tableau Pulse has a feature that prevents users from defining metrics that are identical to existing ones, which helps to maintain data consistency.
  • However, in large organizations with numerous data sources, Tableau Pulse can quickly become confusing due to the currently limited governance options.


Using metrics correctly

  • Using Tableau Pulse, customers identify the metrics that best reflect their key priorities.
  • Employees' attention can be focused on these metrics so that the results have a direct impact on their work.
  • Tableau Pulse can be set up to track the impact of actions taken.
  • Tableau Pulse can enable organizations to adjust business strategy based on insights gained.
