The combined use of Tableau and Trifacta helps the CPFR team drive the business forward, increasing visibility into customer orders. Trifacta’s visual profiling capabilities and Tableau’s advanced visual analytics allow the team to easily identify gaps and get ahead of larger issues.
Trifacta integrates natively with Tableau Data Extracts (TDE), allowing PepsiCo analysts to seamlessly transition between the two technologies. PepsiCo brings Tableau data extracts into Tableau Desktop, allowing them to maintain performance on big data.
The combination of Trifacta’s data wrangling power and Tableau’s analytical depth allows PepsiCo to streamline its process. This has dramatically reduced time spent on data preparation and increased the overall quality of the data. Normalized data in Trifacta helps catch errors and flaws in the data. And with Tableau, PepsiCo can easily spot outliers and take action. If issues arise, they can correct mistakes before causing any bigger problems downstream.
Performing data analysis with Tableau using Trifacta's normalized data has reduced the end-to-end run time of PepsiCo's analysis by as much as 70%. The ability to reproduce patterns makes building CPFR tools a more efficient, automated process.
PepsiCo now spends less time preparing data, and more time finding insights. Mike Riegling, Supply Chain Data Analyst at PepsiCo, said, “Now we’re not taking our time putting the data together; we’re spending our time analyzing the data, telling the story, and finding problems.”
Building these reports in Tableau reduces production time by as much as 90%, and visualizations that used to take up to six months to build are now ready within a day.
