Where are you in your data journey? We often see organizations that have found immediate and significant value in Tableau within departments or business units. Changing the behavior of small groups often comes natural, but sometimes repeating that magic across an entire company is elusive.
In this session, we'll show you how to enable wide-spread adoption of visual analytics, all while still maintaining data governance, transparency, platform scalability and, - most important - without sacrificing the speed and fun inherent to Tableau. We'll discuss the pieces of a successful Tableau Center of Excellence, and show you real-world examples in action. Most importantly, we'll show you how to enable and empower the passionate people in your company.
Have you had success in creating a Center of Excellence (CoE) for Analytics in your organization? Please come share your stories, successes and pain-points in your journey to get the center of excellence up and running. Thinking about creating a CoE in your company, come listen to other customer's experience and get ideas on how you can get this started. We will also have Tableau employees on hand to answer questions and facilitate discussions.
Meetup seating is filled on a first come, first seated basis; space is limited.

Over the last two years, users of our Tableau Server production platform grew over 500% to a total of nearly 30,000 users today! During this explosive growth, governance and best practices took a (temporary) back seat, and problems like extract refresh delays and hardware resource constraints soon bubbled to the surface. Enter the Wells Fargo Business Intelligence Competency Center! Join us to hear how we boosted the environment’s efficiency by establishing governance, best practices and optimization throughout the platform.
We’ll discuss a few aspects of our multi-pronged approach such as upgrading hardware, establishing controls for permissions and identity authorization, extract/subscription schedule optimization, and user education focused on performance best practices. Finally, we’ll discuss the many methods the Wells Fargo Tableau BICC employs to evangelize ways to make tenants successful with the platform, and help them connect with us and each other for support.
Developing and implementing an enterprise demand management program that impacts all business groups and many of our 270K employees at Wells Fargo is a huge challenge. In this session we will share our journey on establishing an enterprise program focused on reducing third party spend and highlighting how data, analytics and reporting enabled by Tableau is helping us reach our cost savings goals. This session focuses on our journey, the value delivered and lessons learned along the way.
