    recap and pictures from Jan 28 BTUG event at Broad

    Zach Leber

      Many thanks to our speakers Nicole Nichols, Josiah Grimes, and Dan Murray for their great presentations to our Boston Tableau User Group meeting this evening at Broad Institute in Cambridge. And thank you Interworks for buying our snacks.


      Nicole showed how New England Biolabs (NEB) is using Tableau to support DNA Polymerase development. NEB used Tableau data visualization to review much more data on many more options for improving their products and then present the new improved product data compellingly to colleagues and customers. Joe Grimes (not pictured) explained how other groups at NEB are becoming increasingly self-sufficient at using Tableau for much of their business analysis and how NEB has integrated Tableau with Salesforce.com.


      Dan Murray from Interworks presented his considerable Tableau experience including advice on getting started with Tableau, responding to questions about Big Data, and handling new enterprise engagements. He also raffled off three copies of his new best-practices guidebook Tableau Your Data! and took many questions from the audience.

      Thanks also to all of you who attend BTUG - it wouldn't be anything without you.
