Onware has been implementing and supporting visual analytics with Tableau for almost 10 years.
What is Tableau?
Tableau helps people and organizations become more data-driven. The Tableau platform provides the breadth and depth of capabilities that enterprises need, and adapts to your environment with unmatched flexibility and choice, while meeting the toughest governance and security requirements. People love using Tableau because it is both powerful and intuitive. Tableau leads the industry with the most passionate user community, over 86,000 customer accounts, and a commitment to customer-focused innovation.
Tableau is a leading BI and analytics software that helps people transform data into actionable insights. Explore your organization’s performance with powerful data visualizations and visual analytics. Build interactive dashboards and perform ad hoc analytics in just a few clicks.
Share your work with anyone and make an impact on your business. From global enterprises to construction organizations, and early-stage startups and small businesses, people everywhere use Tableau to see, analyze, and understand their data.
Bring all your data from across your systems into a single place.
Tableau connects to common software in various industries, such as Procore, Sage, Deltek, NetSuite, AccuTerm, Epicor, eCMS, ViewPoint, CMiC, Salesforce, Microsoft CRM, SAP, SharePoint, and more. Whether it involves income statements and balance sheets or time entries and workforce planning, Tableau saves time by consolidating information across your organization into a central location.

Tableau Online Backup
Protect your organization’s Tableau dashboards, reports, and analytics from accidental or targeted data loss with Onware Business Solutions’ Tableau Online backups.
Why are Tableau Online backups needed?
Tableau Online does not offer data recovery.
Tableau Online provides built-in Revision History when changes are made to items published to the server but does not provide any recovery if items are deleted accidently or on purpose. Once a workbook is deleted, it is deleted permanently because Tableau Online does not have a “Recycle Bin” or “Trash” folder.
By using Onware Business Solutions’ Tableau Online backup service, you can easily recover your organization’s deleted Tableau Online content, including workbooks, data sources, and data flows from the cloud – whenever you need. Eliminate the manual process of copying and downloading each individual file, and save time with Onware’s scheduled and automated downloads.
Data loss is costly, even when it is unintentional.
The Corporate Financial Institute lists the following major causes of data loss:
• Human error
• Software corruption
• Computer viruses
• Hardware impairment
• Natural disasters
• Power failure
According to NetDiligence, from 2015 to 2018, an average of 80 million USD were made in cyber insurance claims for data loss caused by a system glitch, and $813,000 USD for data loss caused by staff error.
Data loss is a common problem that can result in negative financial impact, loss of client trust, and disruptions to operational activities. Therefore, data backups are critical, especially for Tableau Online, which typically contains information from multiple data sources across different organizational units. Retain copies of important documents frequently accessed by multiple collaborators.
By performing regular backups of your Tableau Online site, you can reduce the risk of losing key company dashboards, reports, and insights.
How Onware performs Tableau Online backups
Onware provides a cloud-hosted backup solution to your organization’s blob storage account (or to Onware’s, if necessary).

Your organization can access the storage account and retrieve any of the backups at any time.
