These days, Vente-Exclusive’s business analysts create dashboards using Tableau Desktop and share them via Tableau Server, which also connects to BigQuery to automatically refresh data.
The new workflow has eliminated “all the numbing work” of the old model, says Wouter. It has also empowered business users to make data-driven decisions.
“Every employee should have the possibility of checking their own performance or the performance of their project. This is something that we truly believe in, and what we are trying to achieve,” Wouter says.
There is a resounding theme to Vente-Exclusive’s story, says Karol Ussher, Google’s EMEA technology partner manager: finding ways to “harness the complex to make it simple and easy to use.”
This idea underpins both Cloud Platform and Tableau, says Karol.
“In the case of Tableau, the user no longer needs to be a SQL expert or a business intelligence expert in order to create dashboards and interrogate the data,” says Karl. “And in terms of Google Cloud Platform, we’re taking huge complexity around managing massive amounts of data and making it very easy and simple to leverage.”
