Increasingly, the need for spatial data analysis is emerging, most commonly sought after by GIS and FM users. There are two leaders:
- ESRI in the GIS segment, and
- Archibus in the Asset management segment.
They are both great products in their segments.
But managers are looking for daily information on which they base their decisions, and generally do not use these tools, but want fast and quality information.
There is room for Tableau as an integrator of all this information.
I will list some segments where there is absolutely a lot of room to apply Tableau as solution.
Often we need population data in various business segments. The needs are obvious in multiple segments: for example, in marketing, we target a specific age group to increase sales. I also want to plan a settlement development, and we don’t know where our young population and retirees are!
This is an example of one solution.

In almost every local community there is a water supply network, sewage system, gas network, electricity, telecommunication network, etc.
They all have some of their own devices that are controlled via SCADA. Also they all have users!
Tableau as an integrator is a logical choice!

In a very simple way, we can integrate the data from our maps with Street View data and get a nice view of our data!
Yes, we can use Tableau in this segment too!
