Tableau supports Siemens IT to analyze and harness data. Insights are available on demand, which previously consumed a lot of the IT Controlling team’s time and resources. Trusted data and drill-down capabilities support numerous teams for data-driven decision making, accessible across multiple devices within Siemens. Visual analytics has enabled Siemens businesses to improve operational efficiencies and streamline internal processes.
We now have complete transparency into our IT costs and consumption. For example, we can see who consumes which IT service and their location; plus we can drill down by geographical level, divisional level, or organizational level.

This validates the power of Tableau - we can display trusted insights and answer questions using any device immediately.
