IT is the backbone of every business, keeping every other department up and running. Today, IT organizations have more data than ever before. Whether its service ticket management, asset tracking, budgeting, staffing, or software monitoring – that data has the power to speed up and simplify your job.

With Tableau, you can help your team keep a constant pulse on your tools and systems. Centrally monitor all of your infrastructure with a single dashboard and make proactive decisions to minimize risk and maximize your budget. Know where your resources are allocated and the impact they’re making. Improve the life cycle of every support case. Leverage the data you have - from ServiceNow, Splunk, Google Analytics, or wherever else it may live - to increase efficiency and optimize effectiveness.
