Games Global is a leading supplier of innovative iGaming content with a proprietary catalogue 3,000 games that deliver direction to online gaming. The customer needed to free up time from on-premise server management and focus on data visualisation that leads to better-informed business decisions.
The customer was hosting their BI environment on-premise, requiring constant monitoring and maintenance. On-premise data hosting involved frequent back-ups and clearing old log files to preserve disk space, as well as the need to plan for ‘downtime’ to upgrade the server each time Tableau released new features. The customer’s IT team needed more time and focus on BI analytics and the presentation of the data to stakeholders rather than on server management.
Keyrus was engaged to determine a comprehensive data strategy for Games Global. As part of the overall strategy, it was recommended that the entire visualisation environment be moved to Tableau Cloud, a fully-hosted, cloud-based analytics solution. The customer immediately recognised the benefits of cloud hosting. Tableau BI & Analytics platform was implemented as the solution makes visual analytics intuitive, allowing people to quickly answer questions with data and more importantly transform their data into actionable insights.
Games Global no longer needs to devote internal resources to server maintenance, disk space, or upgrades and is now reaping the benefits of Tableau Cloud. The team at Games Global now has more time to focus on producing data visualisations that should enable the business to make more effective, data-driven decisions. Tableau Cloud handles all server maintenance as well as quarterly software updates. Games Global no longer has to invest in setting up hardware or worry about implementing new features. The migration presented the opportunity for a thorough content clean-up to reduce data proliferation, where key content was identified, while content that was no longer required was either removed, or enhanced.
As a leading analytics platform, Tableau offers visual analytics with powerful AI, data management, and collaboration. From individuals to organizations of all sizes, customers around the world use Tableau’s advanced analytics to fuel impactful, data-driven decisions. Tableau Software was acquired by Salesforce in 2019.
