Why did you choose Tableau as your single source of the truth?
We chose Tableau to support a core data modelling project with the aim of consolidating and gathering enterprise-wide information into a central repository. We rolled it out to a few nominated stakeholders in other departments to help them fluidly visualise and explore company data and share those insights with their team. Tableau connects with a wide range of data sources, including databases, servers, data sheets, and cloud applications. Because data is stored securely in the cloud and accessible via a single web interface, it’s much easier to give users access to data anywhere and from any device, and we didn’t need any specific hardware or configuration to get started. We’re really happy with Tableau, it’s between 10-100 times faster than other solutions on the market, and you can sort, highlight, drill down, or filter data from a central, user friendly dashboard really quickly and easily.
Our champion in the finance department, Guillaume Charles, commented, “Tableau will be a great improvement for all stakeholders across the company. It’s accessible anytime, anywhere with both standard and personalised reports. In the finance team we now have total confidence that we’re working with the most accurate figures and it helps us reconcile sales, be it market or regional, more efficiently, so we can drill down into the sales mix, gross margin, and volume of units sold.”
