What is MetaMiner Tableau Edition?

MetaMiner Tableau Edition (MMTE) is a multitenant corporate analysis and management solution. It offers Business Intelligence data extraction, analysis, search, and comparison, even if this data is from environments of different Tableau platforms and versions, installed on premises or in the cloud. All the different environments are accessed through the single user interface of the MetaMiner Tableau Edition Client tool.

It is the software primarily for business impact analysis, developed for large and extra-large enterprises that use Tableau Software.

MMTE eliminates the challenges of managing and administering Tableau Software by automating important tasks like metadata management, performance monitoring, versioning, and utilization analysis.
