How does ZoomCharts compare to Tableau ? Can Tableau dashboards be integrated into ZoomCharts?
ZoomCharts focuses on easy data presentation and navigation through interactive visualizations. ZoomCharts does not provide server-side data aggregations or manipulations. Theoretically it should be possible to integrate Tableau dashboards into ZoomCharts SpreadSheet analytics, if that is necessary and if Tableau provides HTML embed code for that. I would like to discuss this requirement over a phone though.
Regarding data sourcing, is Excel the only way to upload data into ZoomCharts?
Excel is the simplest way to get started. ZoomCharts SpreadSheet analytics can be embedded and automated. Some of the supported data formats are Excel and JSON.
ZoomCharts SpreadSheet analytics can load data automatically from external excel file or API which is capable of providing tabular data in JSON format.
ZoomCharts SpreadSheet analytics can be embedded into any web, mobile or desktop application as well.
