Success Stories


Energy in Switzerland

energy electricity poles

A powerful example of Tableau in action and the impact of data science is illustrated in our work with Swissgrid.

Thanks to the Data Science Environment built by Quantum, Swissgrid is able to forecast electricity production and consumption as well as run impact scenarios to be prepared for potential challenges… like the one that arose during Winter 15/16. The Swissgrid Data Science Environment collects information about electricity production and consumption, temperature observations and forecasts, water levels in reservoirs and much more.

All this data is then processed and converted into a set of reports using Tableau that are distributed in near-real time within Swissgrid, to external parties and to the Federal Government. In addition, we have integrated Tableau into the platform, making possible extended ad-hoc analysis and valuable simulations.


In-Depth Surveys

An international medical organization needed to modernize its survey and reporting process for its courses.

Quantum created a course evaluation platform, which produces and distributes reports for hundreds of events, attended and evaluated by nearly ten thousand specialists in Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Australia and the Americas. New features included the addition of scalability, interpretation of free text, and ability to review performance over time.

With Tableau Desktop, Quantum’s experts were able to convert reports and dashboards from the organization’s former “paper” design into reality. All relevant course information is presented in a compact and standardised manner and statistics are shown at several levels of detail. Many different graphical aspects come into play, to better present results: tables, bar charts, pies, box-plots, heat maps, with comparisons with past values and other benchmarks.


Financial Reporting

How modern data science solves financial reporting pains: An international corporate client wanted help to turn their manual, error-prone financial reporting into a flexible and automated solution, with full reconciliation and accrual management.

Quantum’s solution provided the creation and configuration of data structures and the installation of Tableau for self-service creation of reports and quick visual data exploration. Tableau’s user-friendly visual interface allows flexible data handling, calculations and analysis. All the necessary tables and graphs are automatically populated and updated, daily. All tables, graphs, and underlying data can be exported into all major formats, as pdf, image files and spreadsheets.

With a limited cost, the client now has a powerful solution that provides quick, correct and flexible reporting, along with many more analytical capabilities than before.
