IT Analytics: How a Data Company uses Analytics to Improve IT

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.
