This informal gathering is a chance for you to connect with other Tableau users in the same business and see and hear what other people are achieving by using Tableau. During the meetup, you’ll have time for general networking and more in-depth table conversations.
Also please look for the Tableau Foundation gathering area at Data Night Out.
In 2014 PATH and the Tableau Foundation launched #VisualizeNoMalaria, an initiative to support the Zambian Ministry of Health to eliminate malaria by 2020. This session will showcase the community efforts of PATH, the volunteers including several Tableau Zen Masters, and the Tableau, Alteryx, and Mapbox communities to develop dashboards, alerts, and predictive models to support the work in Zambia. We will present a technical overview of the Tableau dashboards built to support the data pipeline, geospatial and predictive analytics using Alteryx, Mapbox, and Tableau, and VizAlerts for distributing dashboards to a variety of staff in Zambia. Come to this session to learn about this critical use case and be inspired about how you can do good with data.
The Ad Council is the non-profit behind iconic and effective public service campaigns including Smokey Bear, “A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste,” “Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Drunk” and the recently viral “Love Has No Labels.” For nearly 75 years, the Ad Council has connected with Americans across ever-expanding communication channels to inspire, inform and save lives.
In this session, we will discuss our process for selecting Tableau as our BI tool, our experience during implementation with one of Tableau's premier partner, USEReady, and how we identified information needs within the organization and developed dashboards to successfully meet those needs. Through our adoption of Tableau, we are able to leverage analytics to measure, demonstrate and grow our impact on significant public issues affecting our society.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is a data driven organization, from investments in U.S. education, to development projects in Bangladesh. The appetite for data is just as strong with regards to our people data, with C-level management and their chiefs of staff, as well as HR leaders, relying on accurate, current and historical data views to inform decision making.
As a Workday client, our HR Analytics team has built upon that great platform, surfacing data in Tableau and adding value beyond what is easily visible in the native environment. Our dashboards focus on many common workplace needs, such as headcount planning, career movement, recruiting and workforce planning.
In this session, we are pleased to share our need and solution for standing up a self-service business intelligence (BI) culture among our Cross-Division Chiefs & HR leaders.
In this session we will cover the following topics:
- Innovative Integrations: extracting, preparing and surfacing Workday, Brassring, Outlook and other data (soon with Alteryx) to provide current and historical insights
- Design & Collaboration: dynamic insights and dashboards, as well as the essential role of thought partnership with, and educating, business experts
- Let me see!: live demonstration of the structure of our Workday data feeds and Tableau HR analytics dashboards, embedded in SharePoint Online
- Our roadmap: the next steps envisioned in our long term plan, including more frequent refreshes with the addition of Alteryx
There are over 42 million food insecure Americans today. Feeding America is working to end hunger through a nationwide network of member food banks. However, data to inform decision making and drive action is dispersed across the network. Our vision is to develop a comprehensive data strategy that enables data sharing and efficiencies across the country to drive our efforts to end hunger. We will discuss early wins with Tableau such as:
- Our Performance Dashboard
- Poundage reporting
- Disaster management
- Local data recovery opportunities
- Our path forward in data collection across the network
- Early learnings to create a data driven culture for sustained growth
With data transparency in the spotlight in higher education, it is important for leaders at ASPPH Member Institutions to have ready access to public health education data, to make critical on-campus decisions. Just four years ago, the ASPPH Data Center was tasked with expanding Member access to data, but our antiquated system of spreadsheets and static reports was often cumbersome and unreliable. Enter Tableau!
During this session, the ASPPH Data Center will share how we implemented a system of online data collection and analytics, while fostering a culture of data. By taking a strategic approach, we demonstrate the value of data in decision-making, and empowered over 600 academic leaders from 102 Member Institutions worldwide to conduct analysis of public health education data, develop reports, and share findings.
Does your nonprofit need to move from gut-based decisions to data-driven decisions? The Tableau Foundation has two unique resources to support nonprofits--great software and great people. Join us to learn how to leverage both of these. The Tableau Service Corps can provide you with volunteers for Tableau projects, anything from getting started to tuning dashboard performance. You will find out how the Tableau Foundation can help your organization can deploy self-service analytics to make data-driven decisions at no cost or very minimal cost to you.
