Do your analytics tools slow you down or speed you up?

Having the flexibility to quickly adapt to changes, efficiently leverage existing tools and achieve multiple goals with a single program are hallmarks of great public sector initiatives. Unfortunately, the analytics and reporting systems public sector agencies rely on are often inflexible, slow, or in some cases, nonexistent.

Why does it take a week to analyse public funding data? A month to create a crime statistics dashboard? Another week to revise that dashboard to segment boroughs?

Tableau takes the pain out of public sector analytics by allowing you to quickly and easily connect to all of your data and visualise it by dragging and dropping—no scripting required. You can connect to almost any data, query millions of rows in seconds, drag-and-drop to visualize any dataset, and even publish your analysis to Tableau Public to meet transparency reporting requirements.

Watch the video on the right to see how easy it is to drag and drop your data into beautiful visualisations with Tableau.

In the past, when we were to write a 40-page report with static bar graphs, some people would just look at it and think, “a bit of bedtime reading.” But now they can slice and dice the data however way they want, in terms of bespoke dashboards.

Learn how Oxford has analysed student data with Tableau

Andy Cotgreave

As the oldest university in the English-speaking world, Oxford has long been a haven for scholars thirsty for knowledge. Senior Data Analyst Andy Cotgreave explained how Tableau has helped the university respond to a burgeoning desire to understand the data gathered by a proliferation of new IT systems. “Everybody wants to be in on it,” says Andy. “Tableau is a tool that generates a passion unlike any other tool I've ever used.”

Andy explains, "We were using Excel, which is a fine tool, but we were getting more and more demands for division level reporting and analysis. It was taking about a month to do each report. Then another report would be needed, and we had to do the same work all over again. We were getting swamped by these demands and doing repetitive work. We had to look for a different tool. I discovered Tableau."

Easy reporting for data transparency initiatives with Tableau Online

Open Government projects are meant to empower advocacy groups and citizens.

See Tableau in Action

The visualization at right shows Scotland's population censuses from 1911-2011. Use the slider to select a year and see the distribution of population by age and gender. Can you see the effects of World War 2 and the change of distribution in the 1980s?

You can create dashboards similar to this with other tools, but Tableau makes it much easier with drag-and-drop functionality that eliminates coding or hours of data manipulation. You can connect directly to all of the sources you value most, including Excel spreadsheets, government analytics data, SQL Server, and even unstructured databases like Hadoop.

The best part? You can combine all of these data sources together to see a cohesive picture of the problem you're trying to solve.

Creating a visualisation takes minutes and can help you answer questions faster and more efficiently than ever before.
