Unifying data for faster insights
Prior to adopting Tableau, Sequis Life’s data was siloed in different systems and had to be manually extracted and consolidated to create reports and dashboards. This process often took days or even weeks and was prone to human error, which made it difficult to trust the data.
“We have so much data in our systems, but we had to make a significant change in the way we access and explore that data to optimize the value from it. We chose to implement Tableau because many of us had used it previously and experienced the benefits already. Tableau is also very easy to work with, and when we showed it to the business, they were impressed with its visualization capabilities,” said Budiman.
To ease the adoption of Tableau, the Data and Analytics team worked with each department to create a simple dashboard based on a specific problem. They then showed them how to use that dashboard to explore and understand their data.
In the 12 months since this initial rollout, the number of Tableau users within the business has nearly tripled. The Data and Analytics team has also established governance processes to enable self-serve analytics without compromising security.
In addition, reports and dashboards, which previously took days or weeks to create, can now be completed or refreshed in just minutes.
“When a business user needs the latest data, they can just go to Tableau and click to refresh their dashboards. They are also empowered to design their own dashboards so that they can solve problems on their own,” said Budiman.
Budiman added that there is also greater trust in the data now with the removal of manual processes reducing human error.
