Tableau Conference has been a hotbed for data like-mindedness of analytics enthusiasts all around the world. Year by Year, more people join the data extravaganza to create better memories, spread more inspiration and enrich themselves and others with newer learnings.
Tableau Conference aka Data16 was held in Austin, Texas this year. It was the 9th annual event that brought together thousands of Tableau enthusiasts, innovators and experts from all around the world. With certifications, hackathons, inspiring keynotes, exclusive customer sessions, crazy night outs, every minute of Data16 was a pleasure to be a part of.
Here’s a brief roundup put together by USEReady Happy Data Geeks who are very proud to be a part of the huge event.
Winner of USEReady’s TESLA Raffle
USEReady set up camp at booth 307 at Data16 and we had more than endless chatter about data, analytics and doing amazing stuff with Tableau. As much as we admired the enthusiasm of attendees, we were flooded with entries to our exclusive Raffle. Keeping up our streak of giveaways at Tableau Conference this year we gave away a TESLA Model S. The winner of the Raffle was Milan Milutinovic from Dusseldorf, Germany.
There Were Data Doctors
We also introduced our concept of Data Doctors that has been inspired by the needs of our customers as observed in our many engagements. The Data Doctor was born from the need of turning data pains into gains. These are USEReady specialists that can be hired for a day or for longer projects. Their aim is to make a BI project, a smooth sail by addressing the most crucial concerns of businesses.
The Data doctors are Tableau Vizards, Alteryx Alchemists and Birst Brainiacs alongside being champions of several other technologies. The most notable thing about them is their unparalleled business and domain expertise enriched by many real-world projects they’ve been a part of.

Saving Lives with Tableau
It was such an honor for us to be a part of Ad Council’s endeavor of Saving Lives with Tableau. In a breakout session, SVP – Media Measurement and Analytics for The Ad Council Anne Deo discussed the process of successfully adopting Tableau as a BI tool and how USEReady facilitated this success for them. She emphasized on how analytics was leveraged to measure, demonstrate and grow impact on significant public issues affecting the society.
Anne also shared her reasons for working with USEReady, with the hall. We are so proud to be a part of their success story and are motivated to strive to work harder to aid many such causes.
The keynote from Bill Nye – The science guy, was one of the most anticipated events at Data 16. Other keynotes came from Shankar Vedantam, Tableau developers, and other industry aces, on several topics around Tableau and BI. Then there were the crazy night outs and parties that raised the roof and sent it to the sky with the power of the geeky coolness evaporating across the Data 16 zone.

The data madness from this year isn’t even over yet and we are already dreaming and planning for next year. TC17 is scheduled to be organized in Las Vegas. We cannot wait to see you there, already.
