Who isn’t a Tableau fan? It’s a lifeline for many businesses because it empowers them to perform self-service analytics using intuitive, interactive dashboards. The reason behind why it’s the first choice among enterprises is that it’s easy to use, and its dazzling display of visualization facilitates real-time interaction with data across multiple systems and platforms.

Challenges of Modern Data Analytics

Though Tableau is the perfect tool to visualize and analyze smaller datasets, it becomes challenging to work with cloud-scale data. Let’s investigate some of the challenges that users face as data volume increases and analytical requirements get more complex –

  1. Dashboards get sluggish, and it becomes difficult to drill down to granular details. When billions and trillions of rows of data must be scanned to serve each query, it becomes difficult to achieve the kind of performance that Tableau users are accustomed to.
  2. The problem intensifies further as analytical complexity increases. Heavy calculations at runtime result in slowdowns, and users experience excessive delays.
  3. Additionally, enterprises find it difficult to inflict a single standard for consuming and driving analytics. Sometimes, different teams across the enterprise opt for more than one BI tool, leading to conflicting reports and siloed analysis.

Like age, data is constantly increasing, so businesses need a future-ready solution that can handle massive data without compromising on the performance of their favorite BI tool, Tableau. With ever-changing business requirements and demand for instant insights, it has become imperative to implement a solution that can provide quick and flexible reporting with the ability to dive deeper into the granular level details without worrying about the size and complexity of your data.

Amplify Analytics with Kyvos Smart Semantic Layer™ on the Cloud

In addition, Kyvos builds a Smart Semantic Layer™ on the cloud that overcomes the challenge of siloed reporting by adding business knowledge right on top of the data layer.

How Customers Across Industries are Using Kyvos with Tableau to Solve their Business Problems

#Case 1: Leading Pharmacy Store Chain Transforms SCM with Instant Insights on 315 billion Records using Kyvos + Tableau

One of the largest pharmacy store chains in the US, with thousands of stores and hundreds of thousands of products, wanted to analyze two years of history in Tableau to drive their business outcomes. However, analyzing this data was beyond the limits of their existing BI infrastructure. Some of the key challenges they faced were:

  • Inability to analyze hundreds and billions of records from 50+ tables and data sources.
  • Slow response times kept business users waiting for days to get insights.
  • Diagnostics were difficult as they could not drill down to granular levels.

They used Kyvos to build a scalable architecture that helped them analyze historical inventory, operations, sales, and supplier data on their Tableau dashboards. The Kyvos + Tableau solution helped them:

  • Save cost on the excess inventory by reducing the number of days of supply.
  • Perform time series analysis on inventory level for a two-year window.
  • Get responses in a flash by leveraging the speed of Kyvos and Tableau’s easy-to-use and interactive environment.

#Case 2: Global Coffee Brand Analyzes 3 Years of POS data on Azure using Tableau with Kyvos

One of the world’s leading coffee brands was struggling to get a holistic view of its point-of-sale data across thousands of stores and products. Their analysts needed to explore massive amounts of transaction-level data to get an accurate 360-view across their customers, products, and stores across time. However, scale and performance issues with their Azure and Tableau environments, however, made for a big hurdle. They were facing several challenges:

  • Inability to scale and conduct analysis over extended time periods.
  • Tableau slowdowns with growing data volumes.
  • Heavy reliance on manual coding and dependency on expensive data engineering resources.

The Kyvos + Tableau solution helped them overcome these challenges and get in-depth insights into their data. Earlier, they could process data for only one or two quarters, and even then, insights were delayed and expensive. With Kyvos, they can now work with three years of history in Tableau with a built-in capacity to scale limitlessly in the future. The Kyvos + Tableau solution helped them perform –

  • Holistic reporting on 40 million customers.
  • Self-service analytics with the fastest response time.
  • Year-over-year analysis on three years of data vs. just a few months.
  • Drill down to the Day/Time-of-Day level detail on product and store data.
