Publish Date: April 23, 2013 - 6:00am

World Wide Technology, Inc. (WWT), a market-leading systems integrator that provides innovative technology and supply chain solutions, has chosen Tableau Software to power its analysis and visualization with dashboards dedicated to specific departments. Tableau helps WWT blend data from various sources to improve visibility and decisions.

WWT has deployed Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server to its Professional Services team to share dashboards that analyze employee performance and program management data, as well as financial analysis and forecasting.

“Tableau helps us make faster, more informed decisions,” said Rob Villareal, senior business analyst at WWT. “Before, we would spend thousands of hours compiling data from a variety of sources. Now, we’re making data driven decision in real time. Tableau is simple, easy to use and is helping us see and understand our data better.”

WWT specializes in delivering and supporting advanced technology solutions. The company brings a new way of thinking and a proven approach to how organizations evaluate, architect and implement technology. Through its Advanced Technology Center, WWT provides its customers with technical and engineering expertise and hands on access to the latest technology products and solutions. WWT also offers a complete array of configuration and integration services and a full suite of advanced logistics, inventory management and supply chain solutions.

“Like many Tableau customers, WWT had a lot of useful data but it was locked away in many disparate systems and was difficult to make sense of it,” said Elissa Fink, Chief Marketing Officer at Tableau Software. “The ability to see and understand the data has helped employees across the organization react more quickly because they see issues as they arise.”
