Best method to stream a delta within PI Integrator

I have an interesting question.  (At least I think it's interesting.)  I have several elements in my AF that have a PI point for "Operational Count".  This is, as the name suggest, the count of operations since last reset.  These particular elements are sent over to a tableau server (an analytic system) for reporting and other "neat stuff".  My tableau people today, asked if I could include not just the "Operational Count" but also include the change or delta since last update.  My first thought is to create an analysis to calculate the difference from current time and previous time, then include it in the View to the tableau system.  I was wondering if there is another method or is this my best option?


The analysis I am planning to use is DeltaValue('Operational Count').
