How has migrating to Tableau solved these challenges?
Now, most of these old manual processes have been completely automated, saving hundreds of man-hours a month. Data is staged in SQL server databases, prepped in Alteryx, and then connected directly to Tableau, where it can be refreshed at the click of a button. Once a new dashboard is built, it never needs to be manually updated or maintained again. Employees can access it whenever they want, making them self-reliant and enabling them to correctly answer their own questions and analytics needs for the first time. We have over 13 different teams using Tableau in this way, including Finance, Capacity Planning, Operations, Engineering Services, Investment Planning, and more.
Tableau’s emphasis on visual analytics – particularly mapping – also makes key trends and patterns in the data significantly easier to see, such as new flight destinations that are quickly growing in popularity. Having that visual sense of markets makes complex analytics much easier to understand. Tableau is designed to make the most of geographical data, so you can get to the “where” as well as the “why.” Out-of-the-box geocoding and rich interactive maps make geospatial analysis available to everyone, without the need for specialized software.
