Tableau: Can you describe your first encounter with Tableau?
Gaëlle: When I arrived at IsCool, they told me, "Hey, here's Tableau; it’s going to be your best friend for life." And I said, "OK, but no training, nothing at all?" They said, "Well, no, it's really simple, you'll manage."
Tableau: Did you?
Gaëlle: Actually, it was really simple. I told wonderful stories about the video games we were creating at the time, and then I started to share that with friends, with people that I liked, and then professionally. I did a certain number of conferences, and one day I met one of the founders of BlaBlaCar, and then, there you have it, we talked data...
In the same manner, he told me, "OK, that's super, do you feel like coming to BlaBlaCar to do data work?” I said, "Well, yeah, why not?” There you go, I did that in video games; I'll go see what I can achieve at BlaBlaCar.
Tableau: Can you share more about that transition?
Gaëlle: I actually brought Tableau to BlaBlaCar. When I arrived, I called my Tableau account manager and told him: "Hi, it's Gaëlle from IsCool, who is now Gaëlle from BlaBlaCar, now I need Tableau at BlaBlaCar. How can we do that?" So, we began like that, with a few Tableau licenses and now, practically the whole company uses Tableau.
