PI + Tableau

I was wondering if anyone in the community has tried using Tableau as a visualization tool for PI data? If so, can you elaborate on your experience and provide any advice for someone thinking of doing this? Our company is deploying PI, and all visualization will be done in a SharePoint environment. We are trying to find the best tools to present PI and other data in a "BI" type format, without having to completely develop custom tools ourselves. It seems like Tableau might work well within SharePoint, but I don't know how difficult it is (or even if it's possible) to get data from PI (AF) into Tableau.


I saw a brief mention of Tableau somewhere in a discussion of the new Web API, but cannot find any further documentation. Would the Web API/OData service provide the best method for connecting PI to Tableau?
