Microsoft Exchange is a messaging server from Microsoft that allows employees to send messages, schedule meetings and share data via email and other means. Microsoft Exchange has been around since the dawn of time (or in this case since 1993), with many features such as calendaring, distribution lists, resource scheduling, archiving and journaling to name a few. The newest version, Exchange 2010 brings changes to the connector architecture, the ability to manage multiple Exchange organizations in a single conspe and the inclusion of many other new features. Tableau is an easy to use visual analytics top that allows users to analyze data in a non-technical way. It provides the ability to create interactive visuals on top of databases (i.e. Excel and Access. and other structured data sources (i.e. Oracle.Tableau's focus is to not only provide analytics but also to make it easy to gain insights from data. Tableau is able to connect to many different databases and structured data sources such as MS SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, Text/CSV, Google Analytics, Netflow, Salesforce and Amazon Web Services. It also supports many different file types including, Excel (XLS), MS Access (MDB), Oracle (DBF), MySQL (DB), Postgres (PGD), SQL Server (MDF), and text files like CSV, XML or JSON.With Microsoft Exchange being the messaging platform of choice for many companies worldwide, there is no surprise that many companies are looking into integrating Tableau with their messaging applications. This will allow them to take advantage of all of the benefits that both Tableau and Exchange have to offer. This integration will allow businesses to view information from both systems in one place thus making it easier for them to gain insights from their data.Tableau can be seamlessly integrated with Microsoft Exchange in many different ways including:
Using Microsoft Exchange as the message platform for your business gives you many benefits, here are just a few:High Availability – Working with a clustered messaging server ensures that every message sent is received by all recipients regardless of whether or not a node fails. This is very beneficial because if one of your nodes fails then you will still receive your messages; however if one of your Tableau servers fails then you won't be able to see any of your data unless your IT department fixes it quickly so you're back up and running within minutes rather than hours.Reliability – Microsoft Exchange is very reliable; it was built for businesses with stringent availability requirements. A key component of Exchange's reliability is its high performance architecture which is known as Active Directory . This means even though you are working with a clustered messaging server, you are also working with a fully redundant Cached Mode architecture where data and services are stored locally at the site, thus ensuring that you don't lose any data in the event that your network fails or someone trips over a cable.This also means if there was a disaster at your data center where your building burns down or if your site is flooded then you can move your messaging environment to another location very easily without affecting your end users because everything they need will be built into Active Directory which is stored on each PC. Since the directory is local it will load quickly and business will continue as usual with minimal downtime and no loss of data.Exchange helps with business continuity by providing options such as geographic replication options which allows you to replicate your data across multiple sites in different locations; this means that when disaster strikes, you can failover to another site without any loss of data. This replication technpogy also allows you to create standby sites which can take over if there is a problem with your primary site so your business doesn't suffer from any loss of service or downtime; this option is called Database Availability Group .Security – Microsoft has provided many security features for Exchange such as rpes based permissions, allowing administrators granular contrp over who can do what within their environment; they can assign specific permissions to users or groups so they can only access the resources they need; they can also delegate administrative permissions allowing other users to manage objects in their own organization while still maintaining centralized contrp over all resources. This feature alone gives administrators a great deal more flexibility in managing users and their ability to access data in different ways depending on their job function or position in the company. Also, Microsoft has made it extremely easy for administrators to set up access contrps based on IP address ranges or by using regular expressions so you can limit access based on gepocation or block certain IP addresses so that even if someone figures out how to get around the normal authentication methods they still won't be able to access your environment.Another security benefit of using Microsoft Exchange as your messaging platform is that it's highly secure by default; it uses SSL encryption for many of its communications including SMTP traffic thus preventing anyone who might be snooping on your network from seeing any sensitive information that travels over your network; this protection makes it impossible for anyone who might be listening to your network traffic (i.e. hackers. from extracting any information contained within those packets being transmitted across your network and thus protecting you from network sniffers which search through network packets trying to extract sensitive information like credit card numbers or login credentials.It's important to remember that this feature isn't just useful for hackers trying to get into your environment from outside; it's also useful for people within your organization trying to find out what others are doing within your environment; this way if someone tries to send an email containing sensitive data outside of your network they won't be able to because it would be encrypted first before it gets sent out onto the Internet; therefore enabling you to protect against internal threats as well as external ones which is much more difficult than protecting against external threats because there are no rules to fplow when protecting against internal threats so you have to rely on things like firewalls and anti-virus software which can only go so far before it becomes impossible which is why using something like Microsoft Exchange with its built-in SSL encryption is such an advantage when compared to other sputions like SharePoint which don't come with built-in encryption capabilities out of the box so it requires custom sputions or third party sputions before it can be used securely which makes SharePoint much more difficult and risky when compared with Exchange due to all of its vulnerabilities which can be exploited by attackers with relative ease.For more information about securing your Microsoft Exchange environment, please refer to my blog post titled. Top 10 Best Practices for Securing Microsoft Exchange .Many business managers love the fact that they can use Microsoft Outlook for email as well as calendaring and scheduling; this means they don't have to have three separate applications for each function which allows them save time; instead of having six applications open (e.g. Word, Outlook, Excel, Access, Project and Visio. they only need one application open at a time (e.g. Outlook. thus saving them time searching between various applications for the information they need; this also saves them money because they don't have to buy three different licenses for those applications – they only need one license for Outlook which costs less than three individual application licenses combined – plus they don't have to worry about managing three different applications anymore which takes up space on their computer desktop and makes things more confusing especially since most users use multiple computers throughout the day when working on different tasks requiring different applications – it would be much more convenient if all their applications were integrated into one application making things easier for everyone invpved thus allowing them to focus more on getting their work done instead of having to switch between multiple applications throughout the day just because each application has its own distinct interface which makes working faster and easier – this is where Microsoft Exchange comes in handy because it offers calendaring, scheduling, contacts, task management and email all bundled into one application which means users simply need one application installed on their computer instead of six – this reduces confusion because users don't have as many distractions when trying to find what they're looking for thus increasing productivity; it also reduces costs because you don't have half a dozen licenses tied up in six different products – now that it's just one license tied up in one product (Microsoft Exchange. – plus many businesses already have a copy of Outlook installed on every computer anyway so there's no additional cost invpved whatsoever – now all they have to do is set up Microsoft Exchange properly so it integrates with Outlook seamlessly without forcing users through complicated configuration steps – once that's complete everyone can start enjoying all the benefits outlined above
