A Sailing event on 2016-07-20 16:00:00
Join us on July 20th at our next SeaTUG event where you will have a chance to learn and be inspired from some amazing dashboard designing techniques by Russell Spangler and Tony Kehlhofer. This will be followed by a very real-world scenario most of you are experiencing and one that we continue to see in the industry – “How to move the needle in Corporate Culture from Excel to Tableau”. We will have Dan Montgomery and Russell Spangler from Amazon share their stories on how they went about anchoring the adoption of best practices for data analysis and incorporating Tableau within their groups. This session will also include a hands-on demo by Russell to showcase some really simplistic ways to start converting your excel tabular reports to Tableau. Lastly, Mario Jaspers from Slalom will wrap up the event with some more Tips and Tricks that you all could take back and apply to your daily dashboards.
