Across the Group, data was managed in many different ways by different people. With no standardised system, resources or end-to-end system integration, business users worked with unclean, scattered and unreliable data.
“Senior management at the Group and subsidiary level faced a blizzard of monthly, quarterly and annual reports,” recalls Edward. “The effect was that reports were simply being ignored. Instead, whenever anyone needed insights, they relied on data analysts to prepare reports, which took two to three days.”
With the help of their IT partner VISIDATA, Emtek Group introduced Tableau across its subsidiaries, creating a single source of truth with their data. With the ability to combine and integrate different data sources within Tableau, Emtek's top management can drill down to view data from various subsidiaries at different levels of granularity.
In addition, Tableau has also helped boost Emtek's performance across the Group. One of the biggest challenges in a conglomerate group is tracking performance and ensuring transparency. Tableau has enabled true visibility and become a trusted source of performance data for the top management. Subsidiaries also get motivated to hit their KPIs and improve performance, helping the Group's business to grow.
