Tableau Improvements to My Organization

Sai Krishna J
Data Scientist at a consultancy with 51-200 employees
In our line of work, we primarily use Tableau Desktop/Server to visualize data based on our clients’ requirements. Once, while dealing with a procurement scenario, we found that the client could save $2.00 on each unit of Part A if they ordered it from Supplier X rather than from Supplier Y. In another case, we designed dashboards that showed data from different sensors located throughout a building. This kind of an application could enable stakeholders to monitor building climatic conditions in real time and adjust thermostats according to CO2 levels and occupancy, thereby driving efficient consumption of power. In this way, Tableau visualizations can be used to take more intelligent decisions as they bring out patterns buried under a mountain of data. View full review »

The use case has been different from one organization to another. In most cases, the initial buy-in and value-add is at the analyst level. The freedom to calculate, then derive, then iterate - that never-ending cycle every analyst out there knows well - to do that, do it quickly, and in a way that is remarkably beautiful, is every analyst's wet dream. Even if an analyst never shares visualizations they create during the course of a project, the tool makes them better and faster at deriving insights of their own by virtue of everything data visualization is meant to do for humans - improve understanding. For organizations that have the capital to take it further, beginning to push out the interactivity, reports, and resulting insights up the ladders, or out the branches of the organization, with buy-in to the more-expensive server options - well, those organizations wield a much greater force. The ability for decision makers whose decisions affect many lives, higher in an organization, or the net effect of decision makers who make thousands of small decisions every day - Tableau, used well, makes it easier to make higher quality decisions faster. The same can be said of any technology used well, to be fair, but Tableau’s beauty and speed to insight is unmatched. In my case, I have also used Tableau as a report prototyping platform. Designing and implementing is so fast in Tableau, when working with business stakeholders who may not know the specifics of what they want, and will ultimately be using whatever reporting platform their corporate standard is on - Tableau is great for iterating through version after version, change after change, until a report is built that is exactly what the business needs. Then, specific requirements can be written for a report builder using that corporate technology - which is invariably slower to iterate on. By moving the prototyping and proof of concept to Tableau, the development hours and agile lifecycle can be decimated. View full review »

Good for adhoc visualization of an unstructured dataset which comes from other sources outside of source systems that you can overlay on top of the structured data and you have to get a quick visualization dashboard prototype going. It helps with the Agile design build and can be used in our current operations analytics work to overlay multitude of data sources that we know of. Can always work offline, which is nice. It’s good for organizations with very limited staff to do quick report builds and dashboards that can be put on our SharePoint site for sharing or on reports when responding to data caps. I use it a lot for design discussions so I can communicate the gaps in data sources for data exchanges or to generate a storyboard prototype of how the data is to be used in visualization but where we need to have data exchange/ETLs on.

Lunik Kanungo
Assistant Vice President - BICC - Development at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
In the long run, things should be faster to deployment, to production, than they used to be before. It's the speed of getting results, based on what the user actually requires. Before it was a very strict, follow the FDLC process. There was a lot of documenting and control that you had to follow before it went to production. We have decreased those a little bit so that they can move to production a lot more quickly than they used to. So time to market, or time to production is a lot faster than it used to be, because of self-service. View full review »
Ron Bayes
Senior HR Analyst at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees
We’ve been able to replace several manual spreadsheet reports that took hours for individuals to complete. With Tableau Server and some automation processes put in place, those reports are now automatically delivered to the end users, saving time and money. We can also develop reports much faster than in the past plus provide an interface to a database which in the past might not of been used as much due to the lack of technical skills to write the queries.

Dev Bhosale
BI Architect at a healthcare company with 501-1,000 employees
Tableau has empowered the business users to get answers to their data questions without relying on IT teams. Rather than following build, wait, and iterate cycle, business teams are able to analyze the data much more quickly and identify opportunities for efficiency and revenue generation. Prior to the adoption of Tableau, data was present in multiple spreadsheet; thus, there was a lack of "single source of truth". This problem was resolved by using "Published Data Sources" residing on Tableau Server. View full review »

(2IC) Senior System Analyst at a insurance company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Tableau has provided the organisation a means to allow business people to explore their data at their pace. They can either review the reports online, or on their Tableau Reader or they can download it into other formats for use in data analysis. The key insights and graphic representations through the dashboards has also provided them a quick and painless overview of their current status, whatever that may be. View full review »

The client is in transition from traditional BI reports to real-time, mobile sales reporting, with a goal of eventually providing predictive analytics. The transition included a move away from IBM Cognos to Tableau, and using IBM Watson for predictive analytics. In this case, Tableau was able to do all the predictive analytics with less development effort and more visual results than Watson Analytics. View full review »

The adoption of this platform has improved the interaction between the IT and the business departments, through an increased awareness and more effective involvement of business users in the definition of business requirements and reporting needs. Now, the IT people can mainly focus on the setup and administration of suitable data sources published on the server that business users can directly connect to and explore with Tableau's visual tools.

it_user257478
Performance Management Analyst at a local government with 1,001-5,000 employees
The old way of preparing reports in the past was to have an analyst extract data from an Oracle database, export the results into an Excel spreadsheet, and then format that spreadsheet for client consumption. This process was very time consuming and the final product rarely consistent, especially visually. Tableau has made it possible to skip all those steps, allowing the analyst to touch the database directly, do the analysis, and create an interactive - and much more informative - report with a standard look and feel. This allows the analyst to “connect” more with the data they’re analyzing and not act as data pullers only. View full review »
Nick Heigerick
Product Manager - Emory University (Tableau) at a university with 1,001-5,000 employees
In our Project Management office, it has provided us better insight into the breadth of our work and made it much easier to see which projects are at risk. Once we retire our old reporting system, we will be saving about 20 people four hours per week. You can do the math on the annual impact. Getting buy-in from all of the department leaders has been the toughest part. They are tentative about letting go of the old systems, we have to really prove that our Tableau dashboards fully meet their needs. View full review »

* Data Interpreter: Can rid your data of null value fields. * Split: Click on the column you want to split, identify how you want to split it, and where you want to split the data. * Pivot: Great when you have many columns of dates. Just highlight your date columns, then right click and select Pivot. That's it. Now, your totals and region data will be based on any particular year. * Metadata: You can select the second icon above your previewed data source. You can select the dropdown arrow for each Field Name you would like to change and you can split the names here as well, or double click on the Pivot name and correct the name where it makes more sense for the type of data you are using.

Our organization’s workflows dictate that the front desk staff are supposed to collect demographic data from our customers. However, we knew that this was not happening. Tableau allowed us to very easily monitor which staff members were adhering to these workflows and which weren't. We could then do very targeted re-training of those staff members who needed it.

Vineeth V
Senior Engineer Business Intelligence with 1,001-5,000 employees
When we started with Tableau, it was basically used for converting existing Excel reports. But later on, after exploring the features and with latest releases, it had a greater impact on the way we interact with the data. We were able to connect the data from different source of data together. We were able to relate the defects, quality and cost aspects of the products of our company from different regions in a much more efficient way. The visualizations gave a better picture of the current state of affairs and we got an idea of what needs to be improved in the line of business. Now, Tableau has become an integral part of our organization for any analytical solution. View full review »

Program Manager (Graduate Assistant) at a university with 1,001-5,000 employees
It helped my organization by winning more client work, as clients love interactive visualization. Tableau has also helped our managers make better decisions and, more so, quick decisions. With Tableau's quick querying and ad-hoc visualization features, many important processes have been automated and thus Tableau has provided a quick turnaround time for product/project delivery. Example: My company's auditors historically audited financial statements and transactions from the customer's ERP system via sampling methodology, which did not encompass the entire transactional data and thus did not provide 100% assurance to our clients. With Tableau's advanced data analytics features, we were able to build a tool that is tailor-made to the auditor's needs and thus provides 100% assurance over the entire data set. View full review »

Tableau Provides a set of different visualizations that were not available in OBIEE. The dashboards help narrate a story. As an organization, we were able to bring in more people to use our platform because it was easy to use and helped business teams make quick decisions. In OBIEE, the business was dependent on IT vendors to generate reports. With Tableau, non-technical business users have become familiar with creating dashboards, thus reducing dependency on IT vendors. View full review »
