Creating a single source of truth for 5,000+ administrators
The Instituto Unibanco has a mission to improve Brazilian public education, working with over 2,500 schools in five states that contain approximately two million students.
“We discovered Tableau in 2014, and our immediate reaction was a blend of desire and excitement about the possibilities,” explains Ricardo Henriques, Leader and Director at Instituto Unibanco.
Before Tableau, standard reporting took about a month. Now reports are available within a week. Ricardo says, “We can use this extra time to optimize more reports, work on analysis in a more in-depth fashion, and think more about how to further improve the delivery of reports.”
Instituto Unibanco maintains an Oracle database, containing data from the foundation, other institutions, and public bodies. They also have data in TXT and CSV formats, among others.
“Tableau lets us organize these databases to make them available in a clear and accessible manner. It also allows the end user—we are talking about over 5,000 administrators of public schools in Brazil—to focus on reports and act on them within the context of each specific school,” shares Ricardo.
With Tableau, managers can track student participation, attendance, and progress in areas of Portuguese language, math, and science for each school within the education network.
“The ability to monitor what happens on a day-to-day basis at each school allows us to make the best decisions,” says Ricardo.
