Tableau Cloud Migration with InterWorks

If you’re wondering whether the time is right to migrate to Tableau Cloud from Tableau Server and how you’ll get there, InterWorks’ four-step Tableau Cloud migration program is for you. We’ve been the experts in Tableau migration since we built the original Content Migration Tool! We’ll make sure your Tableau migration is informed, efficient and creates minimal disruption to your business.


Complete a quick self-service screening. We’ll quickly assess the level of effort required to migrate your Tableau Server environment to Tableau Cloud. We’ll discuss any potential roadblocks / risks and may recommend a deeper dive in our assessment. If we don’t find complicating factors, we’ll recommend moving directly to migration.


If your screening indicates at least one complication, we’ll work with your team to dive deeper into your Tableau Server. That involves a detailed repository exploration, evaluation of your Tableau Server topology and understanding of your accompanying business processes as they apply to Tableau governance and administration. We’ll provide a written evaluation outlining the overall level of effort, what we expect it would take to migrate to Tableau Cloud and recommendations on how to mitigate challenges around complexity, sustainability or cost.


Need to get Tableau Cloud migration right the first time? Our experts have been doing this for years. We’ll run a thorough Platform 360 to understand everything about your Tableau Server’s configuration, usage, history, and consumers. We’ll create a catalog and action plan that includes all users, data sources, workbooks and other Tableau objects. You’ll receive diagrams outlining target site / project content structure, target environment, Tableau Bridge configuration, authentication, integrations, etc. We’ll hold workshops with key stakeholders for clear alignment and understanding of the nuances of Tableau Cloud. When you’re ready, your team can leverage our plan or we’ll be happy to roll up our sleeves and help.


We’ve been automating Tableau content migration for years, and our team is comprised of proven experts in bringing success to the cloud. We’ll work with your team to migrate data to the cloud, stand up your Tableau Bridge Servers, configure Tableau Cloud site(s) and employ scripts to help execute your migration according to plan. For Tableau objects that must be migrated or recreated manually on Tableau Cloud, we’ll support your team, working alongside them to answer questions and troubleshoot any issues in your Tableau Cloud environment.
