See how Netflix built its analytics in the cloud with Tableau and Amazon Web Services
Building out a data platform doesn't have to be like building a House of Cards, and our friends at Netflix know this better than anyone else. With 86 million members and counting, and more than 700 billion events per day, Netflix has had to expand their data capabilities by developing a scalable and flexible analytics platform built on Tableau and AWS.
Attend this webinar to hear from Albert Wong, analytics expert at Netflix, to see how they simplified their data stack by building a data lake/data warehouse strategy which allows Netflix to collect and store massive amounts of data, supporting thousands of Tableau users with managed data.
You'll learn about:
How to set up effective analytics on top of enormous data sets
How Netflix serves large groups of people with governed data
The details of Netflix's data lake/data warehouse strategy

Watch this webinar to learn how to:
-Avoid the drawbacks of using spreadsheets for data analysis
-Leverage all of your data, no matter how big or where it lives

Today’s IT departments can’t simply provide IT solutions to other departments. Passively processing other departments’ requests is no longer sufficient to meet modern business needs, power company growth, and excel in a constantly changing marketplace. Instead, IT must strive to be the leading force and early adopters for information technology themselves.
Join this live webinar to see how Tableau’s IT department uses analytics on a daily basis to analyse their own performance and improve their own efficiency.

There’s a verse in Proverbs of the Tanakh that goes like this: As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. – Proverbs 27:17
What does this verse mean? It means that when you have a good friend, that friend will push you and make you better and stronger. If you make a mistake, they’ll point it out to you in the right way so that you don’t make it again. If you do something well, they’ll pat you on the back, but they’ll also help you figure out how to do it even better next time. And vice versa.
That’s the value of the data visualization community, and why the more voices that join, the better off we’ll all be.
There’s a big qualifier to that statement, though. In order to reap benefits from our interactions with each other, we must avoid two diametrically opposed cultural paradigms which are the antithesis of iron sharpening iron. Attend this webinar to learn more.

The world of commercial banking moves swiftly. B2B clients have complex needs and offer great opportunity for banks who can move fast, resolve queries quickly and provide a premium service.

E-commerce companies often have to think of their online stores in very different ways from their brick and mortar counterparts. Within Groupon’s Relevance function, the focus is not only on ensuring that the company’s best-selling inventory is highly discoverable and featured on the right real estate, but also on delivering a highly personalized experience, tailoring the online store to an individual customer. The feature development process naturally involves numerous tradeoffs, and to identify the optimal user experience, every new product is rigorously A/B tested.
Watch to learn:
-The key metrics that drive merchandising decisions at Groupon
-The best practices and pitfalls of designing A/B testing frameworks to build the best online store experience – separate the signal from the noise
-How to build trust and credibility in your organization by democratizing data
A child's never-ending "whys" aren't meant to exasperate parents. Rather, these enquiries are genuine attempts at getting at the truth. By repeatedly asking “Why” (five is a good rule of thumb), you can peel away the layers of symptoms which can lead to the root cause of a problem. Very often the ostensible reason for a problem will lead you to another question.
In this webinar, we'll walk through real scenarios that’ll show you how Tableau can help you get to that root cause. From uncovering the underlying cause of KPI changes to simply understanding why something happened, we will explore how to ask and answer these Whys and get to the truth, while staying immersed in the process of analysis.
Tableau makes it easy for people to rapidly transform data into smart business analytics. It’s a new kind of business intelligence software – rapid-fire business intelligence.
We’ve done years of research to build business analytics software that supports people’s natural ability to think visually. Shift fluidly between interactive views, graphs & reports, following your natural train of thought. You’re not stuck in wizards, bogged down writing scripts or waiting for IT to develop a report. You quickly create useful data visualizations, reports & dashboards. And then in a click, you share them across your organization.
All the things you wished you could do with business intelligence —work with huge data live or in-memory, mash up data sources, visualize data in multiple ways, build dashboards, create interactive data applications—are not only possible in Tableau but are also quick work.
