6 Reasons Why Organizations
Should Put Tableau Blueprint In Place
Become Data-Driven With Tableau Blueprint
Tableau Blueprint is your subway journey to becoming a data-driven organization, with station stops along the way to provide you the capabilities to reach the goal of self-service analytics. In the first part of our Tableau Blueprint series, I introduced you to the framework itself but now you may be wondering “why should I put Tableau Blueprint in place within my organization?”. This article will give you the six reasons Tableau Blueprint is THE methodology to follow to become data-driven.
Why Tableau Blueprint Is What You’ve Been Looking For
Taking the Tableau Blueprint subway not only will lead you on the path to become data-driven but also bring numerous advantages to your organization. Here we’ve focused on the six main reasons this framework is destined for you and your organization:
Provides A Vision
Probably one of the more obvious reasons but Tableau Blueprint provides a road map to guide you in the right direction to becoming a data-driven organization. It provides you a step-by-step approach with guidelines to follow, proven practices and gives you a vision for your organization’s analytics. By following this road map, your whole organization can be reassured that they’ve got everything in place in order to achieve the end goal.
Establishes A Data Culture
In order to become data-driven, establishing a data culture should be one of the top priorities. According to Tableau, “A Data Culture is the collective behaviors and beliefs of people who value, practice, and encourage the use of data to improve decision-making.” By following the Tableau Blueprint Proficiency route, it helps achieve just that; educating all employees to shift the way they make decisions (i.e. by using data rather than gut decisions).
Increases User Adoption
Tableau Blueprint is an organization-wide initiative and it’s important that all users are data literate and have confidence in building, monitoring, and analyzing their own analytics. Through the Proficiency route, users will be educated through different learning plans to help build knowledge. Once users are confident in using and trusting analytics, user adoption should only get better.
Builds Trust And Confidence
Users will not just be consuming analytics but also be able to conduct their own analysis thanks to the ensemble of the different station stops on the Blueprint subway. Through building agility, proficiency, and a community where data is tested, users are educated and people share insights, all this combined together will increase trust and confidence in an organization’s analytics.
Allows For Agility
Given analytics is ever-changing, having repeatable processes for all deployments is essential for Tableau Blueprint to be successful. Governance makes self-service possible in a way that every user in an organization can easily understand, access, and maintain data, and publish their own content without needing to wait for help from the IT department for instance.
Presents New Business Opportunities
Having trusted and governed analytics where BI and Analytics professionals can make business decisions based on figures and not instinct is what will help you discover new opportunities for your organization.
