Building Upon an Open, Data-Driven Culture at Facebook

InterWorks’ customer sessions, both this year and last, are based on work performed by InterWorks at Faceboook. Before InterWorks came along, Facebook saw the need for fast insight into massive amounts of data that could be shared with numerous people. An open data culture had long been present within Facebook, leading them to seek the best way to maximize their data discovery potential. It wasn’t long until Facebook decided that Tableau was a great fit to help them fulfill their rapid visual analytics needs. 

Given InterWorks proven track record of client success with Tableau, they were an obvious choice to implement the software throughout Facebook. Facebook’s open data culture, paired with InterWorks’ implementation of the right data architecture, expert training with Facebook Data Visualization Guru, Andy Kriebel and emphasis on user adoption has opened the doors to a modern era of data analytics. Equipped with unbridled control over their data and rapid speed to insight, Facebook is ready to show the world, in true social fashion, everything they’ve learned using Tableau.
