In 2013, Tableau established the recommendation of eight cores for every 1000 Tableau Server users. Yet, admins continued to ask the age old question, "How many users can an eight core REALLY support?" What if we told you that *our* answer was 3000 users on a single eight core? You'll hear how, with minimal hardware and no budget, we grew a thriving Tableau community of 3000 over three years time. We'll show you how we managed our environment then, what it looks like today, and how we're planning for tomorrow. But our answer isn't just about hardware. Since that time, our community has grown to over 7000 strong. Our team, in contrast, is small: only six people. There is only ONE member focused on Tableau. Zero support tickets. No help desk. We scale more than just cores... we scale people!

We all love data, but sometimes it needs a little…help. Or so some people think. This session will delve into how data and visualizations are misused and how to detect when it is happening to you. Knowing the weaknesses in human perception allows you to amplify your results, making them seem more authoritative whilst removing alternative interpretations. In this session we’ll be discussing random correlations, bias in samples, ways to present data to support your conclusions, but will you use your new found knowledge for good or evil?
As creatures of habit, we easily stay in our comfort zone when visualizing data and developing data stories. Most of us are here because data excites us and we enjoy analyzing, finding new insights and digging through data for a story worth sharing.

In this talk, I want to share tips and ideas that can help you break out of your dataviz comfort zone and stay engaged, keep your skills sharp and your portfolio evolving. Through my engagement with the Tableau and wider dataviz community for Makeover Monday, I have seen what works and what can be challenging. I will give you a shortcut to continued inspiration and data excitement.

When IT was tasked to support an initiative to improve variant and complexity management, it was the usual scenario - "while we figure out what we want to do, please deliver a tool that solves everything." Usually the struggle to clarify requirements ensues. But this time, we first turned to Tableau to understand the data. Even though we didn't start with asking the right questions, the first answers gave us hints of where to dig deeper. The insights we obtained allowed a better, fact-based discussion, fed by knowledge from the data, and ultimately to a better solution. In this session, attendees will hear Bertram's experiences of how to use Tableau's capabilities as a blueprint to grasp a topic by making sense of the data. Data insights do not replace expertise, but they complement it nicely.
