Rick Amicucci, Solutions Director at OSI Consulting 

A company is having to relocate its headquarters. There are many factors that must be considered when selecting a new site – lease costs, build-out costs, size and room for expansion, etc. One important consideration is ensuring that the company doesn’t lose key talent because of an increase in commute time. See how OSI used Tableau to help the management team with their evaluation.

Scenario 1 - Dynamic Relocation Interactive Visualization Engine

Using SharePoint, business users can enter ideas for future initiatives. The BI steering committee reviews the list on a regular basis and prioritizes projects based on business benefit and level of effort. The projects that have the highest benefit at the lowest cost are prioritized first. Tableau is used to create a scatter plot and show a high-level schedule that can be used for visibility, planning, and budgeting. Key take-aways for attendees include:

  • A lightweight tool to manage BI demand (direct business user input, prioritization, tracking, etc.).
  • The value of a BI governance program.
  • Leveraging SharePoint as a lightweight database tool.
  • Using SharePoint as a data source in Tableau.
  • Several interesting visualization types.
