De visie van Cordaan

Om alle huidige en toekomstige ontwikkelingen het hoofd te bieden, heeft Cordaan de wens om te groeien naar een meer data-gedreven organisatie. Cordaan is ervan overtuigd dat organisaties die beslissingen nemen op basis van feiten en cijfers, goed in staat zijn om een brug te slaan tussen de behoefte van de cliënt en de dienstverlening van de organisatie zelf. Het slim benutten van kwalitatief goede data leidt tot meer en betere inzichten en daarmee tot betere besluiten en prestaties.

Cordaan wil data & analytics inzetten om niet alleen uit te kunnen leggen wat er is gebeurd, maar ook om uitkomsten te kunnen voorspellen. Het inzicht dat verkregen wordt uit de analyses gaat gebruikt worden om acties uit te zetten en op tijd bij te kunnen sturen. Zo kan Cordaan betere kwaliteit van zorg leveren aan hun cliënten, een goede werkgever zijn voor haar medewerkers en financieel gezond blijven.

Het is belangrijk dat medewerkers zelf invloed hebben op hoe informatie weergegeven wordt. Dit is één van de redenen geweest om voor een self-service oplossing te gaan die makkelijk is in gebruik.

Vera van Lin – Programmamanager Business Intelligence

De weg naar nieuwe inzichten

Om de eerste stappen te kunnen zetten richting het datagedreven werken zijn een aantal uitdagingen aangepakt. Dit waren onder andere:

  • Inefficiënte en tijdrovende dataverwerking en analyse
  • Beperkte zichtbaarheid en toegang tot data voor medewerkers
  • Moeilijkheid bij het integreren en beheren van data uit meerdere bronnen

Na een uitgebreide inventarisatie en een proof of concept, bleek voor Cordaan de best passende oplossing een self-service cloud data platform bestaande uit Fivetran (data integratie), Snowflake (data cloud platform), DBT (data modelleren) en Tableau (data visualisatie) te zijn. The Information Lab werkte nauw samen met Cordaan’s IT- en business teams om hun specifieke eisen te begrijpen en de oplossing daarop af te stemmen.

Door te kiezen voor low-code / no-code en daarmee voor iedereen eenvoudig te gebruiken tooling, maakt dat het meenemen van de organisatie om nieuwe inzichten te verkrijgen een stuk makkelijker is. Door de verschillende typen gebruikers binnen de organisatie te enthousiasmeren, informeren en te trainen, wordt de adoptie van het gebruiken van data gestimuleerd. Hier zal in de komende periode nog meer aandacht aan worden besteed.

Met het nieuwe self-service cloud data platform, dat we samen met The Information Lab hebben neergezet en ingericht, wordt alle informatie op één centrale plek, veilig en gemakkelijk aangeboden aan de organisatie.

Betere besluitvorming door data-analyse

Met het nieuwe self-service cloud data platform, dat we samen met The Information Lab hebben opgezet, wordt alle informatie op één centrale plek, veilig en gemakkelijk aangeboden aan de organisatie. Vanzelfsprekend is er geregeld dat gebruikers alleen die gegevens te zien krijgen wat mag en voor hen relevant is. Met de ondersteuning van het Cordaan BI team wordt de organisatie verder geholpen in de zoektocht naar nieuwe inzichten.

Het platform zal gaan zorgen voor verbeterde efficiency in de verwerking en analyse van gegevens, waardoor medewerkers meer tijd hebben om zich te concentreren op hun primaire taken. Daarnaast biedt het platform verbeterde zichtbaarheid en toegang tot gegevens voor medewerkers, wat resulteert in nauwkeurige rapportage en besluitvorming op basis van betrouwbare gegevens.

What’s next?

Het analyseren van data en het daarmee verkrijgen van inzichten die impact hebben op de dagelijkse operatie is van groot belang voor Cordaan. Het biedt haar de mogelijkheid om beslissingen te nemen en te sturen waar nodig. Op de langere termijn zullen ook tactische en strategische inzichten aan bod komen. Niet eerder gebruikte (externe) data zal dan worden ingezet om vragen rondom bijvoorbeeld arbeidsefficiency, huisvesting en personele ontwikkeling te kunnen beantwoorden.

Over Cordaan

Als één van de grootste zorgorganisaties van Amsterdam wil Cordaan verantwoordelijkheid nemen voor de ontwikkeling van de langdurige zorg in de stad. Cordaan biedt aan meer dan 20.000 mensen zorg vanuit 120 locaties in Amsterdam, Diemen, Huizen en Nieuw-Vennep. Dat doet ze met bijna 6.000 medewerkers en ruim 2.500 vrijwilligers. Maar ook in samenwerking met mantelzorgers en andere zorg professionals, onderzoeksinstellingen en vele maatschappelijke organisaties.

Bij Cordaan helpt men iedereen, van jong tot oud, die korte of lange tijd verpleging, verzorging, begeleiding en/of ondersteuning nodig heeft. Als iemand is aangewezen op verzorging en verpleging, een verstandelijke beperking heeft of als met chronische psychische problemen kampt. Wij streven ernaar dat iedereen lang mogelijk zelfstandig kan blijven. Liefst thuis, in hun eigen omgeving. En als dat niet kan, in een omgeving waar men zich veilig voelt.

Fietsenwinkel.nl

International Bike Group (IBG), the international bicycle retailer, known in the Netherlands for Fietsenwinkel.nl, has selected Tableau to better see and understand their data. IBG aims to become more data-driven and collects data from its on- and offline channels in several countries. Tableau's solutions allow IBG employees to visualize and analyze data without external support.

Under the names Fietsenwinkel.nl in the Benelux and HelloRider in Scandinavia, IBG offers fully integrated online and offline sales combined with an extensive after-sales service network. With an annual growth rate of over 70%, the company is reinventing the conservative bicycle market and can count itself among the fastest growing e-commerce companies in Europe. After achieving the initial benefits of a data-driven corporate culture, the company was eager to take it to the next level. To do this, it became essential that in addition to the company data analysts, other employees could tap into their own data for insights.

While rebuilding the data warehouse under the existing data platform on the Google Cloud Platform, IBG began a thorough selection process to find a solution that both analysts and other business users could use. In particular, the solution needed to be easy to use and feature high-level visualizations to optimize decisions and improve business operations. The fact that with Tableau, IBG staff would be able to create and work with dashboards without the help of outside experts, allowing business users to search for answers independently, decided in Tableau's favor.

In the first implementation, 80 IBG employees and 40 stores will start working with Tableau, from different departments such as marketing, sales, logistics and strategy. Through Tableau, they will be able to gain new insights, make analyses and collaborate more easily and effectively. More data and correlations can be included in the interactive dashboards ("Vizzes"), and everyone can be confident that colleagues are looking at the same data. Tableau Gold partner The Information Lab will help IBG set up the infrastructure and train the team and provide further support.

Gijs Louter, Head of Business Intelligence & Pricing at IBG: "International Bike Group has set ambitious goals for the future and our data plays a key role in that road to success. We chose Tableau based on their excellent and intuitive capabilities for self-service, visualization and collaboration. By generating more insights from inventory, customer service or store performance, we are making IBG a little smarter every day, supporting our goal of becoming the best omnichannel bike store in Europe. "

IBG, founded in 2009, has more than 500 employees in Benelux and Scandinavia and is headquartered in Amsterdam. In addition to their online channels, customers can visit more than 50 experience stores and more than 250 service partners.

Diederick Beels, sales director Benelux at Tableau concludes, "International Bike Group's scale and successful omnichannel approach make it an impressive market player. Their data-driven approach is inspiring and we look forward, together with The Information Lab, to helping them democratize visual analytics across the company to support their business goals."

Peter Appel Transport

Peter Appel Transport provides transportation services in the Netherlands and innovates new ways to transport temperature-controlled materials. Before Tableau, Business Analyst Gert-Jan Neeft worked with data in Microsoft Excel and Access. The process was time-consuming and the end results were not pleasant for Peter Appel Transport's business analysts and customers. With Tableau, data is now fun and easy - so easy that Gert-Jan was able to create his first business report on his second day. In this video, Gert-Jan discusses how data analysis has now become faster, more efficient and more fun thanks to self-service analytics.

Tableau: What has been the most fun about using Tableau so far?

Gert-Jan Neeft, Business Analyst: If you have a question you ask it and the nice thing is that it's used in all time zones, so when I'm in bed the answer, so to speak, is already written. And the next morning I can continue with my question or the challenge I have. And that's just fantastic.

Tableau: What led you to Tableau?

Gert-Jan: Our attention was actually caught by our accountant on QlickView. We had a demo of it, but I personally found it rather complicated and not very intuitive to be able to do anything with one or two data sets. I then went to the best-known search engine, Google, and quickly came across Tableau. I had never heard of it before, but I could download it for free for 14 days. I did that very quickly and basically got started without anything - without training, without people I knew. I just played with it at night.

Tableau: Did you find Tableau user-friendly?

Gert-Jan: Without ever having seen or used the tool, I had actually made my first report on the second evening. That got me very excited. I thought, yes, this is it. And then we really stopped the whole selection process. I went to my director, Peter Appel and told him we needed this. And I need a license and we need to get going. And that's like our philosophy: just do it! And he said, yes, you are a specialist in this field and if you say we need this then we need this and we will do it.

Without ever having seen or used the instrument, I had actually made my first report on the second night. That got me very excited. I thought, yes, this is it.

GERT-JAN NEEFT, BUSINESS ANALYST

Tableau: How has Tableau changed your job?

Gert-Jan: I was working a lot with data and doing it with Excel, Access, with all kinds of tools. And with Tableau it just became more fun and it's much faster, it's much easier, you can do much more with it, you can share much easier with people, give access, authorize. The whole concept is really what I would like to have as a BI specialist within Peter Appel transportation, yes it's in the package. I get data sets from customers, you read them in, and you can get started. I can just get to work myself. That makes life a lot easier and more enjoyable. I don't have to wait for other people anymore. I don't have to ask other people any more, because I can just do it myself. And with the dashboards I created, I can very quickly give access to the right people within the organization. They can work with the data. Sometimes they come back with questions, like: "I would also like this, I would also like that." We sit down with them for half an hour and it's drag and drop, "sleur and pleur" in Dutch, and that makes me happy.

Tableau: Have you found the Tableau community to be helpful?

Gert-Jan: The community is so big, so you learn every day very easily and very quickly. And because of that, your dashboards only get better, even more beautiful, even faster. I actually say: it really is a kind of drug. It really is like an addiction. You just want it and you just want more. You just want to go faster. You want to get everything out of the tool that you can. And I'm kind of in that phase right now. I follow a lot of blogs and YouTube channels. I'm reading, watching, saving and getting started with everything I can find about Tableau.

Tableau: How has Tableau helped you achieve your data goals?

Gert-Jan: If I look at myself, I was very busy preparing a report and it really provided one insight and that was it. And sometimes a week of data came along and you refreshed it and that was it. But you want to go further, you really want to give it to the user so that they can interact with that data very interactively. And actually expand their understanding further. That's actually what I've been able to achieve with Tableau.

Mastermind

What is your role and what does your organization do?

I am a partner at Mastermind and under the brand name DISCOVER, we offer solutions for the growth of people, teams & organizations. We use online personal analysis for behavior, drives and talents. Through DISCOVER Partners and DISCOVER Professionals you as an individual or as an organization get access to these solutions to further develop yourself as a person, as a team or as an organization.

What do you guys use Tableau for?

We use Tableau in conjunction with our product DISCOVER for personal analysis. We import individual scores into Tableau. In interactive team and organizational overviews, we provide insight into team dynamics and development potential. Think of topics such as motivation, problem approach, communication styles and leadership analysis. To give you a good idea of this we have an example on Tableau Public.

Why did you choose Tableau?

We looked at Tableau, Qlik and PowerBI in extensive research. From that, it became clear very quickly that Tableau was the only tool that could offer what we needed within the standard functionality and licensing costs. For us, advanced graphical views and interaction were especially important. Qlik could not offer that at all and PowerBI only as a custom tool at high cost and with little flexibility.

What results have you achieved with this?

We have added something to our product offering with Tableau online dashboards that adds real value for our customers and also makes us unique from our competitors. We see this reflected in more customers and higher sales with existing customers.

What has The Information Lab contributed to this?

From day 1, The Information Lab has helped us learn how to work with Tableau and always supports us when we need it on both new applications and troubleshooting. They do this well and quickly.

Sparkles

Sparkles is a company that makes design accessible to everyone through the use of user-friendly online software. A personal invitation, a business card, a sophisticated local marketing campaign: with our platforms, businesses and consumers easily create personalized products that impress their target audiences.

Matthijs Schalk, marketing & innovation officer at Sparkles, talks about how Tableau and Alteryx are used and how he experiences working with The Information Lab.

What is your role and what does your organization do?

Through our webshops, thousands of people personalize and order cards and matching products for the most important moments in life: birth cards, wedding cards, greeting cards, invitations and bereavement cards. In addition to the Netherlands and Belgium, we are active in Germany and have ambitious plans for further expansion to more products and countries. Some of our shops are madeformoments.nl, prettyorange.be and prettyorange.de

As marketing & innovation officer, I help think of new strategies and tactics to make our customers even happier and Sparkles continue to grow. Together with the teams, we implement new ideas every time and go for delivering ultimate value to our customers. We continuously conduct experiments to discover what works and what doesn't.

What do you guys use Tableau / Alteryx for?

We use Tableau for our daily performance. A number of colleagues literally get up with it and go to bed with it. Then we have the analytics, where teams analyze specific segments, product groups or other things.

Alteryx has helped us make Tableau reports much faster. The preparations are only a fraction of the size and complexity that we previously had entirely in Tableau. We've also gotten a much better handle on things where previously we were steering primarily by feel. For example, we now use a customer journey dashboard, where data from a customer journey is aggregated from multiple sources and tables.

Why did you choose Tableau / Alteryx?

Tableau is very versatile and relatively easy to learn. Its visualizations provide stakeholders with quick and clear insight. And in my opinion, Tableau is still the crème de la crème for data visualization, with an accessible licensing model.

Alteryx connects well to our infrastructure and provides enormous possibilities and flexibility for data preparation. Compared to in-house code, Alteryx offers great advantages, including the merging of data from different sources and, of course, the fact that far fewer developers are needed.

What results have you achieved with this?

Within seconds we can see how the business is doing. That and the depth with which we can manage data-driven makes it possible for us to grow again and again in competitive markets.

What has TIL contributed to this?

The Information Lab helped us get started with Tableau in the first place and later with Alteryx. The support and advice from TIL is very pleasant, knowledgeable and very warm. The idea that you can just call or email and get an adequate response makes The Information Lab a reliable partner.

bol.com

Bol.com is one of Europe's largest online retailers, offering a huge range of products to millions of Dutch and Belgian customers through its virtual marketplace.

Here, Anne van den Brink, Business Intelligence Manager for bol.com, discusses the importance of fast, agile data analytics in online retailing and how Tableau has helped Bol.com transform into a data-driven organization, where employees can fill many of their own data needs themselves.

Anne, what do you think is the secret to success in today's online retail industry?

Flexibility plays a big role. The ability to respond quickly to changing consumer habits has always been critical in retail, but this is especially true in online, where shoppers will quickly go elsewhere if we don't have exactly what they want, when they want it.

How does Tableau help bol.com stay agile?

Agility is easy when you're small, but it becomes increasingly difficult as you grow unless you have the right tools. That's why Tableau has become so essential to our business. The fast, accurate data insights it provides into key areas - such as buying habits and seasonal trends - allow us to quickly adjust our marketplace and product offerings so that every customer can easily find what they need.

Tableau has also given us greater control over our operations, such as inventory management, assortment quality and inventory levels. This has allowed us to improve overall customer service while reducing our impact on the environment.

Why did bol.com choose Tableau over other analytics platforms?

One of Tableau's key selling points for us is its extensive functionality, as illustrated by the examples above. Tableau's highly visual approach to analytics means that people can view multiple insights on a single dashboard, making it easy to see key outliers and trends.

Scalability was also an important factor. Over the past five years, our business has grown exponentially, meaning that the number of data sources has grown to more than 250 and the number of active Tableau users has increased from 200 to more than 750. For many analytics platforms, these factors would cause major problems, but with Tableau we can continue to add new data sources and users without any impact on overall performance.

Finally, ease of use was essential. Once employees see and use Tableau for themselves, they quickly realize how easy it is to meet their own analytics and reporting needs rather than relying on the central BI team. Not only has this made analytics more accessible to everyone, but it has also helped bol.com become a data-driven organization, where insights from data are used to support decision-making at every level.

What role has The Information Lab, a technology partner of Tableau, played in your success with Tableau?

The support from The Information Lab was invaluable, especially during the initial rollout phase. Their knowledge and expertise helped the BI team quickly get up to speed with Tableau, giving us the momentum we needed for a successful implementation. Today, our team has reached a higher level of maturity and expertise, but we still appreciate the ongoing support and knowledge from The Information Lab.

Update (June 2020): How did being a data-driven company help you effectively navigate the COVID-19 pandemic?

When you are a data-driven company, you always know where your main focus and responsibilities lie. This makes it easy to operate effectively even as the world around you changes completely. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, I worked with 2,000 colleagues in the same office, but almost overnight everyone had to work from home. That could have caused a major upheaval, but because all of our teams are focused on clear, data-driven goals and objectives, they can continue to function autonomously despite everything going on around them.

Since the lockdown began in the Netherlands on March 12, the number of employees using Tableau daily has increased 15 percent across the company. It illustrates how intrinsic data has become in our daily activities, especially at this unprecedented time. Of course, traditional in-person training is not possible at this time, but in just four weeks we developed a comprehensive online course, turning all the classic Tableau training modules into e-learning sessions. This allows employees to progress with their data skills at their own pace, whether they are experienced with the platform or completely new to it. This allows us to expand the base of our data skills within bol.com as a whole, which puts us in a strong position for the future.

Castor supports Covid-19 clinical research around the world with Tableau

Castor is passionate about transforming medical research. Thousands of medical device, biotech and academic institution researchers around the world rely on the Castor EDC (Electronic Data Capture) platform to easily integrate high-quality data from any source and accelerate their studies.

Here, Castor's CEO and founder Derk Arts discusses how visual analytics with Tableau - as part of the Castor EDC platform - is being used to better understand the Covid-19 virus, optimize valuable hospital resources and ultimately improve Covid-19 patient outcomes.

Tableau was the first choice to support our Covid-19 program. It is easy to use and incredibly powerful, and allows people to understand research findings significantly faster and more efficiently.
- DERK ARTS, CEO

How does Castor's technology support the fight against Covid-19?

Before I launched Castor, it was clear to me that medical research and evidence-based medicine were not making optimal use of data. Decisions were still too often made based on paper documents, spreadsheets or free text publications. I wanted to do something about that. At Castor, we envision a future where all medical research data is machine-readable, reusable and available to everyone to improve patient outcomes.

When new virus strains like coronavirus emerge, data are clearly our most valuable asset. This was true during the Ebola outbreak, where we had decades of research on the effects and possible treatments, and it is doubly true in the case of coronavirus.

Castor's research EDC platform is available free of charge to all Covid-19 research projects. We now support more than 200 Covid-19 studies in 16 countries. And because time is of the essence, we ensured that these studies could go live within an average of six days. We developed pre-built electronic case report forms (eCRFs) based on World Health Organization (WHO) standards, to help researchers get their study or registry up and running in less than an hour.

How does Tableau fit into this Covid-19 study?

One of the best ways to maximize the impact of data is through visual analytics. And no one does that better than Tableau. Tableau was the first choice to support our Covid-19 program. Easy to use and incredibly powerful, it enables people to understand research findings significantly faster and more efficiently.

We ensure the optimal allocation of limited hospital resources and ensure that the most seriously ill patients receive the highest level of care.

- DERK ARTS, CEO

Can you give an example of Covid-19 research and how Tableau is used?
Castor has provided its EDC platform free of charge for any nonprofit research related to Covid-19. And Tableau is an integral part of that. This is especially true in the case of the Covid Predict study, a collaboration between physicians and researchers in the Netherlands to better understand and predict which Covid-19 patients should receive which treatment and type of care. We ensure optimal allocation of limited hospital resources and ensure that the most seriously ill patients receive the highest level of care.

Our EDC system helps the Covid Predict consortium easily capture data from multiple sources - it currently includes more than five million data points. Algorithms for predicting disease outcomes are created and tested with data retrieved in real-time via Castor's API, which enables integration with a wide range of other platforms. These algorithms help predict the likelihood that a patient will require intensive care, and if so, what the likely outcome will be.

Tableau enables people to understand all this quickly and easily. It provides an overview of admissions to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), medium care unit and hospital wards, and visualizes patient outcomes and complications. For example, one crucial dashboard shows the demographic age profile of admissions, the average length of admission, and the number of people discharged from the hospital, admitted to the hospital, transferred, receiving palliative care, or sadly deceased.

This is remarkable and valuable work.

What role did Tableau partner The Information Lab Netherlands play in supporting these projects?

All of this was made possible through trusted collaboration with Tableau, The Information Lab's expertise, and Alteryx. Thus, in just a few days, The Information Lab created these incredibly powerful visualizations, which ultimately help reduce hospital crowding, protect staff and prioritize patients who need to be admitted to the hospital.

How important is it for healthcare providers to become more data-driven?

Everyone must come together with a shared mission to see data as a reliable commodity. Once data can circulate freely among researchers, clinicians and others, for example, it becomes possible to shorten research cycles and improve health care outcomes.

Big data is becoming increasingly important. However, data only becomes good management information if you can quickly and easily convert it into reports that provide the desired insights. Alteryx offers us an excellent solution to meet this desire and thus contribute to the growth and development of our organization.

Online Remote Consulting by The Information Lab is definitely recommended. I have been collecting my questions over the past few weeks and discussing them all with a consultant in one half-day session. I am looking forward to the next session!
