Why did you choose Tableau for this project?
Thanks to our existing relationship with Tableau in both the UK and US, where Tableau forms part of our Ascend Analytical Sandbox, we knew that Tableau's deep analytics and high-quality visualisation capabilities made it a great fit for the project. Firstly, we wanted Experian Safeguard to be accessible to a wide range of organisations, which meant a Tableau Server solution worked extremely well. Secondly, we wanted it to be easy to pick up and use without the need for training, and Tableau’s intuitive user interface allows people to do exactly that. Finally, we wanted it to be fully scalable, which we could achieve very easily by deploying Tableau in an Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment. Another key factor was speed to market. Unlike many products and solutions, which go through multiple concepts and test stages, we wanted to make Experian Safeguard available as quickly as possible, so we needed to use tools that allowed us to do that. Tableau’s ease of use, combined with a wealth of pre-existing internal development knowledge, meant we were able to take Experian Safeguard from concept to deployment in just two weeks.
