AgendaTableau Server Upgrade and Tableau Predictive Analytics

Speaker: Mark Wu and Dan Murray


Upgrade Tableau Server – Mark Wu

“Love & Hate” best describes each Tableau release. People love the new features and Tableau’s pace of innovation. But Tableau server customers dislike the efforts, downtime, and risks associated with each upgrade.

Unfortunately choosing doing nothing is not a good option since Desktop users may have one-click Product Updates feature to upgrade their Desktop before server is upgrade – if it happens, users who have new version of Desktop (not at maintenance release level but major or minor release level, like 9.1 to 9.2) can’t publish workbooks to server, any workbooks opened and saved by 9.2 Desktop can’t be opened by 9.1 Desktop anymore. You will have a lot frustrated Desktop users. It is a lot of communication work of asking all Desktop users not to upgrade their Desktop till server is upgraded. The longer it takes for the server upgrade, the more communication work for enterprise server team……  Which means that doing nothing on server side is actually a lot of work as well.

Our approach is to upgrade the server ASAP – We did 9.1 sever upgrade within 20 days of general release, and we did 9.2 server upgrade within 10 days of general release with 4,000 users w/o any major issues at all.
