How HR is leading an analytic revolution at BAE Systems

Session Details
The BAE SystemsWorkforce Intelligence team within HR was tasked with creating dashboard(s) that helped inform HR Business Partners about the health of their workforce,conduct a flight riskanalysis on a subset population of the workforce, create workflows for compliance related activities, and much much more. They faced dirty data in excel form, dashboards that were coded in SQL, and running predictive analytics using R code and Microsoft Access database. But in 2015, Josh Kabler, Lead Bi Technologist, attended TC15 and saw how Alteryx could make the team more scalable by dealing with the disparate data sources and creating a workflow that did not require any SQL or R coding. Attend this session to learn how a HR team tackled their data preparation and enabled advanced analytics and is now leading the charge to revolutionize analytics throughout all of BAE Systems. You'll learn how they now can spend more time understanding their data in Tableau and their best practices for:

  • Blending multiple disparate sources of data
  • Building a culture of analytic excellence
  • Quickly adopting and benefiting from predictive analytics for Tableau
  • Creating dashboards that aid HR in making data related decisions when it comes to their workforce

HR has Data Scientists?
How the Gates Foundation Visualized People Data to Discover Insights

Session Details
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is a data driven organization, from investments in U.S. education, to development projects in Bangladesh. The appetite for data is just as strong with regards to our people data, with C-level management and their chiefs of staff, as well as HR leaders, relying on accurate, current and historical data views to inform decision making.

As a Workday client, our HR Analytics team has built upon that great platform, surfacing data in Tableau and adding value beyond what is easily visible in the native environment. Our dashboards focus on many common workplace needs, such as headcount planning, career movement, recruiting and workforce planning.

In this session, we are pleased to share our need and solution for standing up a self-service business intelligence (BI) culture among our Cross-Division Chiefs & HR leaders.

In this session we will cover the following topics:

  • Innovative Integrations: extracting, preparing and surfacing Workday, Brassring, Outlook and other data (soon with Alteryx) to provide current and historical insights
  • Design & Collaboration: dynamic insights and dashboards, as well as the essential role of thought partnership with, and educating, business experts
  • Let me see!: live demonstration of the structure of our Workday data feeds and Tableau HR analytics dashboards, embedded in SharePoint Online
  • Our roadmap: the next steps envisioned in our long term plan, including more frequent refreshes with the addition of Alteryx

Transforming Efforts Using Analytics in an Australian Catholic School System

Session Details
In this presentation participants will hear the story about a data driven transformation journey in a Catholic school system (CEDP) in Western Sydney, Australia.

Our journey began in Feb 2016 as a collaboration between CEDP and MIP (a Tableau gold partner) to implement an Alteryx/Tableau solution at both system and school level (the pilot group was made up of 7 pilot schools - both Primary and Secondary). This self-service analytics strategy used a multi-lens framework to provide real time, mobile friendly access to innovative visualizations which generated powerful insights about students, cohorts, schools and the whole school system.

Initiated through the vision and support from the Executive Director of the Diocese and its leadership team, this Analytics and Insights strategy blends and filters data from a number of internal (Enterprise and school-based) and external systems, often utilizing different technologies and formats.

The resulting interactive vizzes cover a wide variety of data points including:

  • student and teacher attendance
  • student demographics
  • school based reports
  • standardized testing results
  • teacher professional learning
  • community factors
  • system level learning interventions


The dashboards for teachers and school executive provided a robust platform for deep and holistic insights about student learning and school effectiveness.

This presentation will also cover the lessons learnt, school and system responses from formal evaluation, and scaling up processes in latter part of 2016 after successful completion of the pilot project.
