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

question mark

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

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.

Digital Transformation

How implementing digital technologies throughout the business helped a client to upgrade operations, meet changing business and market requirements, and strategically expand their offering. Quantum supported our client during this effort with the design and creation of a do-it-yourself analytics tool using Tableau.


White Papers from Tableau

Data-driven Financial Services


Today’s modern financial companies see themselves as insights-driven technology providers of financial services. Technology delivers new opportunities to reinvent themselves and the industry is lining up resources to harness this potential. A key differentiator today is undoubtedly data, with financial organizations leveraging massive volumes of data to transform processes and stack rank themselves above the competition. Analytics make it possible to immediately see results from investments, new operating models, and new ways to service and engage with customers.

This white paper takes a look at four key points to reaching this goal.

Turn Data into Products

strategy lt

Data is the new oil. This slogan is popular among senior managers when they are explaining the relevance of a data-driven digital strategy or corporate culture to board members, investors or employees. The phrase appears simple and clear, and rarely provokes questions. But actually, it‘s a lot more exciting to answer questions like: How can this oil be extracted? How will it be transported? How and where do you refine it? And what does the business model look like? The same questions apply to data and the opportunities to monetize data assets within a framework of new data-driven business models and analytics solutions.

Dirty data is costing you


If you’ve ever analyzed data, you know the pain of digging into your data only to find that the data is poorly structured, full of inaccuracies, or just plain incomplete… or simply put “dirty”. You’re stuck adapting the data in Excel or writing complex calculations before you can answer a simple question.

Enterprises are taking steps to overcome dirty data by establishing data catalogs and glossaries. But even with these practices, it is likely for some level of dirty data to seep through the cracks of day-today operations.

This white paper takes a look at four common data prep issues and how to solve them.

Which chart or graph is right for you?

Advanced Analytics with Tableau

adv ananalytics

Advanced analytics has emerged as a critical component of modern business intelligence in recent years. As organizations rush to take advantage of new capabilities, data scientists need a platform they can depend on, and business users rely on tools that simplify their workflows while empowering them to ask deeper questions. Advanced analytics is an integral part of Tableau’s mission to help people see and understand their data. The following whitepaper details:

– The democratization of sophisticated analysis
– Why an intuitive interface, powerful back end, and statistics integrations provide a strong base for advanced analytics infrastructures
– How Tableau’s advanced analytics features address the most common analytical challenges
