Automate Tableau | Streamlining Tableau

Scale and Automate Tableau Migrations, Archiving and Workbook Management

It's easy managing smaller Tableau environments of 1 or 100 dashboard, but as soon as that number increases, knowing what dashboards are still relevant or which ones use certified and non-certified data sources becomes more challenging.  That's why we recommend implementing a system that quickly alerts you as soon as non-certified workbooks are published to the community and decommission other ones that have outlived their usefulness and no longer needed by anyone.  Here are some questions that if you answer Yes to, might mean its time to automate and streamline your Tableau Enterprise server:


  • Do we have dashboards in circulation that go unused and possibly confuse end-users as to whether they should be used or not?
  • Are expired data sources still being used by workbook authors unknowingly?
  • Is self-service Tableau reporting becoming unmanageable due to the proliferation or facing a "dashboards in the wild" problem?
  • Are Tableau backups are taking much longer and disaster recovery scenarios become time consuming because of an overgrown Tableau Enterprise landscape?

See some of our videos to understand how MetaMiner automates this process of object management and makes it as easy as 1-2-3 to trim and housekeep growing content pains.

MetaMiner’s Architecture

1. MetaMiner Server
This component is the primary back-end of the MetaMiner environment that’s responsible for aggregating key platform metrics and processing BI asset metadata
2. BI Environment
Both SAP Business Objects XI3.0, XI3.1 and SAP BI 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2 are supported by the MetaMiner server. Using the MetaMiner Administrator tool, users are asked to identify the Central Management Server and Audit Database locations of their environment. It is from these two key components that the MetaMiner engine can perform its platform analysis
3. MetaMiner Repository
All metadata and platform metrics are stored in near-real-time to the MetaMiner Database. You may see this referred to as the “MMDB” in documentation or other Infolytik literature. The database itself can be currently hosted on Oracle, MS SQL Server or Infolytik’s embedded database, H2. The ability to use these flavors for your MMDB depends on your MetaMiner edition and license type.
4. MetaMiner Administrator
During the initial setup of MetaMiner, you must launch this application in order to provide a valid license key, identify initial environment(s) and establish and test required connectivities (MetaMiner Database and BI environments). The Administrator can also be used to configure the Diagnostic Center settings which allow MetaMiner to deliver system notifications and events to email addressed as needed.
5. MetaMiner Client
The client application is a high-performance, light-weight platform analysis solution that provides instant discovery of metadata and metrics across any number or version of SAP BI environments. For more information on its specific capabilities you can follow this link.
