About this event
Join us to hear from Alex Waleczek. If your organisation would like to become truly data-driven, it is not enough to just provide charts and dashboards to users. You need to actually consider the user's needs and the context in which they interact with your solutions. Maybe a dashboard makes things even more complicated and what you need is an entirely different solution. In this talk I will explain, what User Experience Design is, why it is important and how you can apply some simple techniques to apply it to your development process in order to build better data solutions that help your users to become data-driven.
Alex started using Tableau in 2015 after moving to New Zealand and quickly realised the potential for it to be more than just a reporting tool. He got involved with the local Tableau User Group, first as a presenter and organiser, later on as a host. As an active member of the community on Twitter, he helped to organise the Tableau Fringe Fests. After working for a Tableau partner and a customer, he now leads the Analytics Practice for the largest Salesforce partner in New Zealand. He still co-leads the Auckland Tableau User Group and the APAC #Datafam Check-In and currently coordinates the first VizIt Community conference in Sydney.
We'll also hear from RAA's Heather Cox. The Tableau community has been quietly buzzing about Dynamic Zone Visibility, but without much detail, and you may be wondering what it’s all about. In this presentation, we’ll look at what this simple yet exciting feature does, how you can use it on your dashboards, and why you probably shouldn’t…at least, not yet.
