 Tableau V/S Excel: Who Will Win?

The debate has been on for so long that no one remembers when and where it all began. But the question has always remained the same—is it better to use tools such as Excel or Tableau for analysis?

 Some people say that Tableau can easily beat Excel in anything. Some say the contrary side. Tableau and Excel are two practical tools for creating, developing, storing, and analyzing data. Businesses use both, but they have different features and functions. This post will look at some of the fundamental differences between Excel and Tableau.

The Basic Differences between Excel and Tableau

Excel is a 20-year-old software program that works with numbers. Tableau, in contrast, was explicitly designed for data analysis and visualization. The two programs also have different use cases; Excel works well when you perform calculations and generate reports based on your data, but it may not be as flexible as Tableau if you need to create interactive dashboards and narratives. Tableau allows users to drag-and-drop fields into visualizations, meaning they can customize their output much more quickly than Excel.

Why use Tableau when you can use Excel?

Excel is the most popular and influential application, especially when it comes to data visualization. Excel has been helping people create and analyze data for more than three decades now, making it one of Microsoft's best products.

 But, despite Excel's dominance in tech circles, there are many reasons people are starting to use Tableau instead, at least for specific tasks. Users say that their companies save about 30 percent on their monthly business intelligence costs using Tableau instead of Excel. 

Why use Excel instead of Tableau?

Tableau and Excel are currently two of your best options for data visualization software. Both of these programs have their unique benefits and drawbacks. Excel is one of Microsoft's most popular tools because it's free and works with all files (including PDFs, XMLs, and HTML files). You can use Excel for various purposes, like creating documents or analyzing numbers. 

However, using Excel on its own is not very efficient when creating beautiful infographics or advanced data visualizations. Instead, you need to use an add-on program like Adobe Illustrator or Microsoft Powerpoint, which requires more time and money for less sophisticated results.

Both have pros and cons in the ongoing war between Microsoft Excel and Tableau. Some say that Tableau has taken the tech world by storm with its easy-to-use functionality, while others believe that Excel still has a few tricks.
