Today, I managed to connect Tableau with our Exact Compact 2000 application (accounting software).
Again proof of Tableau's superior capabilities to visualize virtually any source of data.
Must admit that I could have made the dasboard a bit more appealing. But my main point is that it works, without any hassle!
My next mission is to reverse engineer the data model within Exact a bit deeper, so I can start to make really appealing dashboards! (this example -of course- is giving me a life view on the entire book keeping).
Drop me a message if you;re interested in more of this stuff.
