Meet Paul & Mirek

By Malia Hardin 03 Fév, 2012

AVG Technologies’ finance team needed to shed their dependency on IT for analytics and reports. Why? Their company is growing fast and they needed quick turnaround on streamlined, compliant, auditable, and perfect-looking KPI reports. And they couldn’t add headcount.

Meanwhile, Irish Life was embarking on a complete analytics solution overhaul. What did they need? An easy-to-use, easy-to-build, visually appealing, compelling, and cost-effective solution.

Were they asking for too much?

Not a chance.

Join Paul Egan, Senior IT Manager at Irish Life, and Miroslav (Mirek) Umlauf, Business Intelligence Manager in Finance at AVG Technologies, at Tableau’s Customer Conference in Barcelona to hear them speak about how they discovered Tableau and the impact it’s had.

With his thirty-plus years of IT experience, Paul knows a thing or two about what it means to manage IT well. He gets the workflow and requirements involved in delivering applications that have a material impact on the business. He’s also responsible for the business intelligence solution used at Irish Life. So when you hear his self-titled session “How Irish Life fell in love with Tableau” you’re sure to benefit from his perspective on why they selected Tableau and how it’s impacting the business.

Mirek has spent his career immersed in a world of business data, corporate finance, and IT. His professional passion is all about optimizing performance and creating value. What gets him really excited? Sustainable solutions. He’s a visualization aficionado – which has led him to teach reporting and dashboarding at the Controlling Institute. He’s based in Prague and you can find him on twitter @umlauf_bit.

We’re looking forward to you joining us in Barcelona. Find out more about the other great speakers and register today at our conference site.
