We Have the Data: How Tableau Helped to Change Data Culture at Arby’s
Karl Riddett, Manager of Business Intelligence & Analytics, talked about the data explosion and Arby’s journey to harnessing their own data ecosystem. The primary goal in this endeavor was creating a culture of self-service analytics, Tableau being the cornerstone. In order to achieve this, Karl explained how they used Tableau to tell the business something they didn’t already know. He shared several examples, including a Snowmageddon dashboard in Tableau to analyze a dip in sales during that time as well as a Remodel Report used to analyze Arby’s store remodeling efforts. Karl went on to explain how Tableau has impacted almost every aspect of Arby’s business.
