  4. 4. 4 Where How So What? Where do we use Tableau ?
  5. 5. 5 Where do we use Tableau ? EDA on historic data Underwriting Long term care Marketing Reserving Monitor real-time Performance Predictive Analytics Automated Underwriting Claims trends UW Decision Monitor Historic Performance Market Segmentation Market Mix Modelling Who will buy, lie and die models Fraud Prevention
  6. 6. 6 Where How So What? How do we use Tableau ?
  7. 7. 7 Creating a 360 view of our customers • Following the data journey of a Vitality customer • Tableau allows for quick integration from multiple data systems allowing us to generate 360 insights
  8. 8. 8 Visualizing the journey of data • Finding gaps in historic data allowed us to prioritize data scrubbing more efficiently Data 1 Data 2 Data 3 Data 4 Data 5 Data 6
  9. 9. 9 Viewing data with Geospatial capabilities within Tableau • Maps within tableau allow for quick geo-analysis. • Inbuilt data sources inside tableau store a wealth of data Ability to select zip’s within x miles
  10. 10. 10 Monitoring Data Health • The match rate after combining multiple real time datasets can be quickly monitored from dashboards uploaded on our internal tableau server Data 1 Data 3 Data 2 Data 4 Data 5 Data 6
  11. 11. 11 In combination with R for advanced analytics • The advanced analytical capabilities missing in tableau can be substituted by integrating R- Shiny based web apps • These R web apps can be added to a story thus allowing quick decision trees
  12. 12. 12 In comparing predictive model performance • We frequently use tableau to compare different predictive models • Integration with SAS, Python and R outputs allows heterogenous modelling comparisons in Tableau
  13. 13. 13 Creating user guides allows for faster dashboard ingestion • A quick cross-tab allows for faster bi-variate analysis in tableau • We have created in-house ‘how to guides’ enabling faster ingestion of our analytical dashboards

  18. 18. How to lie with visuals.. 18 Remove scales altogether Use 3-D Pie charts Scale don’t need to start at 0 Shapes don’t need to match data
  19. 19. Increased Impact 19 Increased Insights Reduced Software Spending Reduced ETL time What has Tableau done for us
