Tableau Server Installation packages from Lovelytics are ideal for organizations who have recently purchased Tableau Server.  Lovelytics installs and configures the Server following best practices.  Training is provided to promote self-sufficiency moving forward. 

Lovelytics offers three Tableau Server Installation packages catering to the varying complexity and requirements of each client environment.  The three Tableau Server installation packages are:
