The importance of data to the modern enterprise is no longer a topic of debate. The sheer volume of data that organizations capture, store, and organize continues to grow at a staggering pace. In an age of data, suddenly, every company is a data company. Although the transformational potential of data is practically limitless, most companies still struggle to fully realize the value of their data. So how do you transform into a data-driven organization?
Tableau is the trusted standard in modern analytics and business intelligence platforms, enabling your entire organization to work smarter in its seamless end-to-end experience. Tableau provides powerful and intuitive analytics for users of all skill levels while integrating with your existing technology investments. This also includes Tableau Business Science which brings powerful data science capabilities to business people by introducing a new class of AI-powered analytics that puts data science techniques in the hands of business people, helping them make smarter decisions, faster.
Realizing the full value of your data means empowering everyone to make better decisions with it, and this cannot be done simply by choosing the right technology. As you chart your course to becoming a data-driven organization with Tableau, it’s important to remember that you are not just deploying software—you are driving organizational transformation by prioritizing facts over intuition with data at the center of every conversation. Your decisions should not only give people the right tools, but they must also enable the development of new skills, create new behaviors, encourage participation, and recognize achievements to alter how the organization uses data every day.
Driving change across your organization requires effort and coordination of multiple stakeholders and users with different and sometimes opposing—yet valuable—viewpoints and interests. Orchestrating change, and doing it efficiently, requires executive advocacy, as well as alignment and participation from a broad set of cross-functional participants to ensure the needs of the entire organization are being met.
