How Swedbank Uses Tableau
Business Intelligence Gets Intuitive and Interactive
Tableau is simple, it's fast, it's intuitive, and I totally love and appreciate the level
of interactivity that it brings to any conversation.
Save time delivering business intelligence.
I found that the major benefit is just the speed. The speed of delivery, the speed of
actually delivering a visualization. Most of us in the analyst community, we uh, we
don't have, we don't have the luxury of sitting around and free thinking all day. We actually

With Tableau, you can things so much faster than you can do in any conventional, using
any conventional software like PowerPoint, even Excel. As soon as someone bright, young,
