When Wine purchased Tableau licenses in 2012, they simultaneously created their business intelligence (BI) sector, with a goal to democratize data.
With Tableau, business sectors produce their own sales reports, allowing the IT team to focus on other important projects. And with Tableau Online, employees can access prebuilt dashboards to answer strategic questions. The BI team publishes data sources to Tableau Online, ensuring a single source of truth.
Today, seven business sectors use Tableau—and the demand keeps growing. Management Information Specialist, Allison Vitorino hopes that one day, every department will have access to information “at the snap of their fingers.”
Tableau: What was the impact of Tableau within your company?
Alisson Vitorino, Management Information Specialist:: It was very positive. We needed a tool that almost all sectors would use. In addition to facilitating its distribution, it also serves to unify company numbers and company data, facilitating everyone's job. Tableau came to help and is helping today.
Tableau: How did you decide on Tableau? Can you tell us about your implementation?
Alisson: The Tableau implementation in Wine was very smooth. It was picked after testing all tools in the market. Tableau was chosen for its ease and simplicity of use, while also taking into consideration the other sectors that would also use the tool. So it was a very simple implementation.
Tableau: What kind of challenges were you facing? How did Tableau help you resolve them?
Alisson: The same issues common to all businesses: using information, information that everyone can access and share the same numbers and the same data. We did not have this, so we were seeking to resolve this issue and with the help of Tableau, we are on the right path. Today, information is already unified and everyone can access the same data in the same place, thanks to Tableau.
