To help lighten their workload and stay competitive, h&z realized that they needed to adopt a business intelligence solution. The company evaluated Tableau, Birst, and Qlik.
According to Ulrich Bombka, Principal at h&z, the main reason Tableau came out on top was its ease of use: “It is the perfect tool for a decentralized self-service BI solution.” After successfully working with the free trial version for 14 days, h&z provided a number of consultants and analysts with Tableau Desktop licenses.
Ulrich explains, “After a single introduction to using Tableau Desktop for all employees, our consultants and analysts were able to work with the software and create data visualizations.”
To increase their Tableau skills, employees use several training methods. Ulrich says, “Whenever they have a question, they find their answers in the free Tableau training videos. And we are planning training sessions with Tableau Trainers, where analysts and consultants who frequently use Tableau will learn how to better use all its features and capabilities.”
