Tableau DashboardsMake it Mean Something – Introducing Tableau Dashboards using IIR’s Market Intelligence
Telling the Hidden Story in our Data
Data is the building block for analytics, and Industrial Info Resources (IIR) has access to more data than ever before. As our coverage continues across the world, IIR’s data scientists work together with our research experts to develop techniques that bring the most valuable insights with the help of visual analytics. There’s no doubt we are experiencing a very dynamic, daily changing environment, and it’s become more important and prevalent that business leaders have qualified answers to make strategic decisions. Data presentations are evolving rapidly, and to meet this challenge, we have begun to deploy products using common business intelligence software such as Tableau.
This year, IIR has incorporated the use of Tableau into our network environment so that we can create presentation dashboards for our clients that allow them to control and identify points of interest and dive deeper into finding actionable insights and data using IIR’s market intelligence.
Customization is Key
Manipulating data in a way that will produce an output that can be easily understood and digested by everyone can be difficult. It can also be very time-consuming to develop and launch an application that adequately meets all your requirements, especially if the data is dynamically changing or updated periodically.
IIR’s Tableau-based products allow the user to have a new level of interactive custom analytics. IIR’s interface allows you to visualize the data and analytics, and gives you the capability of adjusting the parameters to produce a multitude of different scenarios to visualize, as well as merge your own internal data.
IIR provides off-the-shelf and custom-built dashboards in Tableau that grant users access to the analyzed data and to be in control of what is being shown, compared, or calculated.
User Case Studies
IIR’s Tableau product line is client-driven and has very creative features that have been implemented in many products.
As an example, a client requested that their office locations be layered on a map within a custom market analysis that allowed for easy identification of potential opportunities near their current office locations.
Another client requested the ability to explore wage fluctuations under various labor demand scenarios over time. Industrial Info developed a “What-If” dashboard that gave the user the option to visualize their data under different circumstances.
