Adobe Analytics Tableau Direct Connector

Avatar

Level 5

With the existing Data Warehouse Tableau export functionality, there are several limitations (e.g., length of time to export, gap in measures available, etc.).

My proposal is to implement an Adobe Analytics Tableau Direct Connector. This will allow Adobe Analytics customers to increase agility with reporting and allow resources to be shifted from reporting to more time spent analyzing and recommending actions based on the data.

I'm sorry to hear that, @emillermove. So that I can share it with the team, can you elaborate on how it "strays away from the very purpose of a tde?"

a TDE file is meant to be a archive file that has a reference to a source file/DB. Then you get the ability to refresh a tde by updating the source file and tableau can auto refresh the tde. In the scenario where a user gets the capability to export to Tableau, they get a file that can be consumed by Tableau, but not updated or refreshed. You can FTP it again under the same file name but its treated as a new data source. Since there is no connection to the Adobe file store, the tde is essentially a static file like a csv. the one thing it does do well is streamline the formatting considerations for Tableau, but Data Warehouse is much better off with that than Report builder or Reports if you were to just download and connect to Tableau.

Hey @benjamingaines, do we have any update on this? We're still strugling to do some automation here without this integration. The Tableau file Data Warehouse gives us it's useless, it comes inside a zip.

Just wanted to express high interest in this. We would use GA a lot less if we could get Adobe Analytics in Tableau instead of GA data.

Talked with product management on this one. There are tentative plans to work on this at the end of 2018. In the meantime, Cognetik has developed a third-party solution that might prove advantageous: Cognetik cloud connector
