The first ever in Bulgaria Tableau Experience Day took place on 24th October 2017 in Sofia. The event was organized by Team VISION Bulgaria and Tableau.
The conference was held under the moto "Business 360" and demonstrated in front of the diverse audience Tableau’s ability to provide complete insight into the state of the business and to support the process of making operational and strategic decisions.
The event attracted a great deal of interest and brought together over 120 participants from various business organizations. Over half of the participants also attended the practical Tableau training, which took place after the conference.
“Tableau gives companies fresh look over their business and allows every employee to effortlessly make analyses without having developer skills and without the need to engage the IT team of the company. This is often the case with other Business Intelligence solutions”, said Valentina Protopopova PhD, BI consultant at Team VISION Bulgaria. In her presentation she shared her experience with Tableau and showed in practice its abilities by processing data about the tourist market in Bulgaria over the last 7 years.
During the conference were given multiple examples of Tableau’s abilities to process public and business data from numerous sources and turn it into valuable and actionable insights. Their experience with Tableau shared also Stefan Velev, IT manager of Imerys Minerals Bulgaria, Vladislav Grigorov, Tableau evangelist and Paraskev Bentchev, General Manager of Team VISION Bulgaria.
Special guest of the event was Mr. Tudor Trof, Tableau Sales Area Manager for Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary who gave the audience a sneak peek of the new version of the analytic software Tableau 10.5 which will soon be available to the public and which is expected to make processing, visualizing and analysing big data even faster and easier. Just in the last year Tableau Inc. has invested over 300 000 000 USD in development and refinement of their Business intelligence solution.
