Tableau Cloud Migration Technical Readiness Assessment

by Tableau


The Tableau Cloud Migration Readiness Assessment quickly examines the way you’re using Tableau Server (21.3+) to understand if there are any use cases which may need to be adapted before migrating to Tableau Cloud. In just a few minutes, the assessment provides a data-driven approach to understand your technical readiness for a Tableau Cloud migration.

If you have >1,000 Users on Tableau Server today, it’s likely that there are technical considerations relevant to you that are not captured on this dashboard. Please work with your account team or an experienced migration partner to determine the best way to validate your technical readiness for a Tableau Cloud migration.

>> When you open this workbook, and you're prompted to connect to the Custom SQL, click "YES".

Please note that this workbook supports Tableau Server versions 21.3 and higher. As a best practice, we recommend removing Stale Content prior to running this evaluation or migrating to Tableau Cloud.

After running this assessment, if you’d like to learn more about Tableau Cloud migrations, head to the Tableau Cloud Migration Homepage.

You'll need a trial or license to Tableau Desktop to use this. Get started here.
