What are differences between Tableau's Desktop/Online versions?
Tableau Desktop Professional has several features that distinguish it from Tableau Public.
The ability to save a workbook (either .twb or .twbx) file to your desktop. This is a crucial capability for many organizations who do not want to publish their files to the public web/Tableau Public server, which is the only saving option for Tableau Public. In other words, if you have private or sensitive data, Tableau Desktop is your only option.
The ability to work with more diverse data sources. Tableau Public can only connect to flat files. Tableau Desktop allows you to connect to relational databases, Cubes, Hadoop, and cloud datasources as well.
The ability to share securely through Tableau Server or Tableau Online. Tableau Server and Tableau Online are similar to the Tableau Public web server in that they allow you to store visualizations, view them through a browser and embed them on websites, the main difference is they require authentication and are secure/private. You cannot publish to Tableau Server or Tableau Online through Tableau Public.
Tableau Desktop is used to visualize and analyze data, create workbooks, visualizations, dashboards and stories.
Tableau Desktop Professional (but not Desktop Personal) can then publish these to Tableau Server, Tableau Online and Tableau Public.
Tableau Server and Tableau Online allow you to safely distribute the interactive workbooks to the right people. You can edit workbooks, visualizations, dashboards and stories in Server or Online, but you can't produce new ones. The editing options are limited compared to the Desktop.
Server and Online can be used as high-performance data repositories for Desktop users.
Tableau Public is a free tool that is intended for people who want to publish information, accessible to anyone. There are both a Desktop and Online components.
Tableau Desktop:- All your development is done here. From creating reports, charts, formatting them, putting them together as a dashboard all the work is done on Tableau Desktop.
Tableau Server:- The dashboards you create are shared with other users using Tableau Server. When you upload(publish) a Dashboard to Tableau Server from Tableau Desktop, other users can access those Dashboards by logging on Tableau Server.
Tableau Public:- It's a free product from Tableau. Visualization Enthusiast can play with data using Tableau Public. It has its limitation. You can only use limited data(no. of rows), can only connect excel or text file (no database connectivity) & anything you save in Tableau Public will be saved on Tableau Public Sever which anyone can download (no confidentiality).
Tableau Online:- I haven't use Tableau online but it's an alternative to Tableau Server in which the servers are on Cloud. Servers are not maintained by users but by Tableau guys. Needs subscription fees.
