Lastly, one of my favorite parts of the conference was the testimonies from business execs about how Tableau is helping create strong data cultures. It has become incredibly clear this year with the COVID-19 crisis how important it is that we make decisions based on data, both on the large scale as a society as well as in our own organizations.
However, it takes more than just having good tools and useful data to create a culture that thinks analytically. It requires investment into teams to teach them how to use these tools and how to think analytically, as well as making sure teams have access to the right data to perform analysis. This isn’t always an easy task, but Tableau is working to make it easier by providing tools and resources for teams to train in these areas and share data with each other.
Overall, it was a phenomenal event that made me excited about all that Tableau is doing and reminded me of the massive impact data analysis has on our world!
