What is Tableau Pulse?

Tableau Pulse is a newly released feature within the Tableau platform that leverages generative AI to deliver personalized, actionable insights directly in the flow of work. It introduces a next generation Tableau metrics semantic layer for defining and standardizing metrics across an organization, and an insights platform that automatically detects significant data trends and anomalies. Aimed at enhancing data democratization, Tableau Pulse makes it easier for users at all technical levels to integrate and understand data through natural language interactions and visual explorations​

Tableau Metrics vs Pulse

Tableau Metrics, introduced earlier, focused on monitoring key performance indicators (KPIs) through simplified visualizations but required a user to understand basic data concepts and visualization accuracy. Tableau Pulse, on the other hand, enhances this approach by integrating a Metrics Layer that standardizes and enriches metric definitions across an organization, and an Insights Platform that leverages generative AI to automatically generate natural language summaries and proactive insights, thus offering a more intuitive and inclusive user experience.

How does DataTools Pro enhance Tableau Pulse?

DataTools Pro Metrics Glossary enhances Tableau Pulse by organizing and standardizing metrics and KPIs from Salesforce dashboards into a structured glossary, which can then be integrated with Tableau Pulse insights. This integration allows users to standardize and centralize definitions, descriptions, and keep track of metric utilization across Salesforce, Tableau, and soon other data and analytics platforms.
