Fabio Fantoni, Head of Modern Business Intelligence at BitBang, Data Journalist at Il Sole 24 Ore
Fabio Fantoni is the Head of Modern Business Intelligence at BitBang and a Data Journalist at Il Sole 24 Ore. As a Tableau user of over 8 years, Fabio has published over 600 vizzes on Tableau Public. He also co-leads the Bologna Tableau User Group.
After discovering Tableau through work, Fabio was amazed by the tool and began to explore it outside of work. A few months later, he created a Tableau Public profile and later attended Tableau conference as well. He describes his relationship with Tableau as “love at first sight.”
Overtime, Fabio has published hundreds of vizzes on Tableau Public. He has visualized many datasets relating to the NBA, combining two of his interests: data and basketball. Fabio enjoys leading the Bologna Tableau User Group because it encompasses what the Tableau Community is all about to him: sharing knowledge, connecting with others, and listening to different perspectives.
