  6. 6. Choosing a Data Discovery & Visualisation tool
  7. 7. Why we needed a Data Discovery & Visualisation tool Growing demand from business end users for interactive and visual data exploration, but: • Current BI tools did not have sufficient functionality • Current BI tools were not user friendly • Result: increasing workload for BI teams, delivered reports triggered new requests etc. Reason: we were not answering the real underlying question:

  9. 9. Target group Data Discovery/Visualization is not for everyone. It’s mainly aimed at Business users - With analytical skills - With an interest to further explore and analyze data - Without BI knowledge Possible jobs/roles that can benefit from Data Discovery: • Business managers • Business analysts • Process managers • Marketeers • Sales managers • Controllers
  10. 10. High level requirements for a data explorer tool • The tool has to be able to process large amounts of data quickly • The tool has to be able to run on existing BI infrastructure (including live connection to EDW) • The tool should be able to retrieve and combine data from different sources • The tool has a user friendly, intuitively designed interface • The tool has user friendly filtering, downdrilling and slicing/dicing functionalities • The tool has an abundance of easy to use visualization functionalities • The tool can be used to create interactive dashboards • Dashboards and analysis can be saved, shared and scheduled to be refreshed • The tool has an export functionality (Excel, CSV, Picture etc.) • The tool must be able to run on tablets (Mobile BI)
  11. 11. Vodafone chose Tableau as the best tool What we liked about Tableau: • Implementation speed • User interface • Great performance with huge datasets • Excellent online learning & training material (free) • Strong Visualisation functions • Excellent customer support Currently 20 Desktop licenses and >100 server interactors
  12. 12. Combining Tableau and Teradata
  13. 13. Connecting Tableau to Teradata (or any other source) Native Teradata connector: • Optimized connection • Drag & Drop querybuilder or custom SQL
  14. 14. Importing data vs live connection • Importing data (extract) used for large datasets • Great performance, even with modest hardware • Extracts can be scheduled on server • Extracts on server can be shared
  15. 15. Using Tableau to make the right Business decisions
  16. 16. Use case 1: 4G Network rollout planning • Plotted revenue per network cell on map • Identified high value area’s • Used this information for rollout planning of 4G
