Accenture analyzes huge data volumes to provide customers with interactive presentations about current financial performance and new market trends. With Tableau, Accenture can now quickly generate reports that used to take three to four people over two weeks. Instead of static PowerPoints, Accenture relies on interactive dashboards—enhancing data conversations and encouraging exploration. Daniel Hüdig, Senior Research Principal at Accenture, said, “We can do things that were just simply not possible before.”
Tableau: How does Accenture use Tableau? Dr. Hüdig, Senior Principal at Accenture Research: We at Accenture Research use Tableau to enable our own people to be able to speak to their clients about their own context. Our role is to make sense of the massive amounts of information. We look at financial performance of our clients to identify potential weak spots. We look at the emerging challenges they may have and we packaged that into a presentation which is interactive, enabling a common ideation about what should be the next steps for our clients.
