Tableau data displayed on a Joomla website

  • 1.  Tableau data displayed on a Joomla website

    Posted Dec 18, 2018 13:28
    Hi everyone!

    I am planning to pull several data reports from out database in Tableau and on our Joomla website. Does anyone here happen to have experience with both Tableau and Joomla? From my preliminary research, it seems a straightforward process but I wanted to ask if anyone has done something similar on their website?

    Thanks :)

    Hi Taida,

    Generally, in our experience, Tableau provides ways of embedding charts or visualizations for any CMS (including Joomla) that allows for embedded elements. The flexibility to do so depends on how your particular CMS was set up, and if content authors are allowed to embed third-party elements.

    Here is some more information that may be helpful: https://tableau.github.io/embedding-playbook/pages/01_embedding_and_jsapi

    Hi Gordon,

    Thanks so much for the recommendation and tips, the article you shared is helpful! It's great to know that your team provides support for Joomla, it's hard to find nowadays so I will keep it in mind.

    Thanks again!

    Kindly,

    Hi Taida,

    I would also add that your success will depend on how many and how complex your visualizations are. My org recently completed a project where we embedded a series of Tableau visualizations on our Drupal website, and we ran into some difficulties with the speed in which the page loaded.

    Hi Tiffany,

    Thank you so much for that. Yes, the loading time might be tricky, and I think our reports will be simple to start. Appreciate you sharing your experience, I will keep it mind.

    Kindly,
    Taida
