TCCEU Keynote: And So it Begins
How do people at contemporary, data-driven organizations achieve more than more traditonal counterparts? Read on for more from this morning's keynote.
Christian Chabot, Founder and CEO gave an update on Tableau's growth and said, "We are unshakably committed to creating one of the world's best analytics brands and supporting all of you in Europe."
Tableau's mission is central. "The same things that drove us to found Tableau drive us today. We believe now, as we believed then: that data has tremendous power to change the world."
He explained: Traditional organizations "are chasing something that I think is mythical: a single version of the truth." They pursue this goal and meanwhile wall off the data from business users. "What is it about the poor, defenseless data we collect that makes us think we have to protect it from everyone?"
Dan then talked about Tableau at Tableau. "We have multiple data sources and every person in every department is responsible for doing their own analysis."
He noted that one of the largest contributors to the Ideas forum is Johan Sivertsen, who is at the conference, and invited him on stage to thank him and give him an exclusive Tableau Development team Kracken t-shirt.
The keynote wrapped, and everyone went forth: to hear from customer and Tableau speakers, to see the Tableau doctor, to roam the Community Alley and to enjoy.
