Alpha Serve is proud to announce that the Tableau Connector for Jira plugin has received an update!

The Tableau Connector for Jira makes those two tools extremely easy to integrate with each other. In fact, it can be done in about ten minutes, or even less. There used to be one flaw with it, though. It used to only be able to retrieve data from the data center and server-based Jira.

This update addresses this issue and makes it also compatible with Jira Cloud. It is actually already available on the Atlassian Marketplace for all users.

What Is Tableau Connector for Jira Useful for

This plugin is extremely useful for businesses seeking to integrate their Jira instances with business intelligence tools, such as Tableau. After installing it, you will be able to transfer data collected by Jira right into Tableau and turn it into visual formats such as easy-to-read graphs, charts, and other elements. And now, Tableau Connector for Jira will be available to you, regardless of what you use: Jira Server, Data Center, or Cloud.

Why Would You Want to Connect Jira and Tableau

Why would you need to do such a thing? Because data collected by Jira can be hard to read and digest, especially if you have no background in analytics. Furthermore, during your weekly and monthly meetings, some employees might struggle to understand what all those raw numbers even mean.

Tableau along with other business intelligence software is awesome at translating all that data into something more tangible and visual. The end result is the same information, but visualized, and much more easy to digest both for you, your managers, and your fellow employees. Carefully analyzing that data is absolutely vital for keeping a close eye on your situation in the office, how well each task is handled, and how efficiently resources are utilized.
