If you’re considering a migration to Tableau Cloud, you already know some of the benefits. The most obvious being that Tableau Cloud will cost much less than Tableau Server in the long term. Some key features, Model Builder for instance, will only be made available to Tableau Cloud users. Plus, you get the benefits of cloud products in general: high availability, security, and a platform that is always up to date, taking much of the day-to-day technical challenges out of your hands, allowing you to focus on the work that matters most.
Before we start with the migration, we do an assessment that identifies overall health and possible issues affecting performance, governance, or adoption that we will need to address.
Prepare the on-prem environment to support Tableau Cloud as necessary, including installation and configuration of Tableau Bridge, URL redirects, user management documentation, etc.
During this stage of the migration, we evaluate the content, subscriptions, alerts, schedules, etc. and determine what is or isn’t to be migrated and whether any redesign or consolidation is necessary.
We’ll leverage the Content Migration Tool to move a subset of the content, including projects, some workbooks, and published data sources.
Build out new features in parallel with the content and manual migrations of unchanging workbooks. Take advantage of the new platform to use features not available on Tableau Server.
A subset of content can’t be automatically migrated via the Content Migration Tool; Atrium will be your partner to assist with the manual migration of these components to Tableau Cloud.
