Dashboards on Tableau Server — Tableau is an excellent platform for creating dashboards and Tableau Server is a good way to distribute and automatically update them. In this demo I’ll create a simple dashboard and demonstrate some tips and tricks I use to make effective interactive dashboards like highlighting actions and benchmark comparisons. I’ll then publish the dashboard to Tableau Server and show off basic functions available to server users like filtering and data export and basic server functions like extract scheduling and permissions. I’ll end with an overview of the Server licensing models.
- Shawn Spott, RBC Wealth Management – 4:00 – 4:30 pm
Niche to Nexus, Driving Business Intelligence Usage — Shawn will outline how RBC Wealth Management took a niche implementation of Tableau and grew it to a major firm resource in less than year. What was the impact of Tableau Server in a self-serve model and some unconventional approaches to driving usage.
