Customer Case Description
IRENA’s web portal provides an easily accessible online platform for education and training in renewable energy technologies. They wanted to add interactive visualizations to the portal giving insights into different topics like energy consumption, educational programs and employment opportunities. Irena were already using Tableau internally. They now needed a partner that could create high quality interactive dashboards keeping web publishing in mind and publish them on their portal.
Irena turned to Edgematics, Tableau’s premier services partner, for assistance. Edgematics worked with the Irena team to identify the type of visualizations required and the related data sources. Data from different data sources were consolidated together and pulled into Tableau for analysis. Edgematics designed a series of interactive dashboards in line with Tableau best practices. These dashboards were of high quality in terms of interactivity and visualization allowing users to analyze at consolidated levels and to drilldown to specific details and trends. Dashboard progress was tracked on a daily basis throughout the project which ensured completion within the stipulated time. The dashboards were published on the Irena web site portal using Tableau Public Premium while maintaining confidentiality of the underlying data.
Irena now had interactive dashboards accessible worldwide by students, vocational trainees and other professionals looking to develop and update their renewable energy knowledge. The variety of filtering, grouping and sorting options in these dashboards gave them the ability to drill down and get deeper insights into educational and employment opportunities. Publishing these dashboards was a successful step for IRENA to further its mandate of education and skills acquisition for the renewable energy sector.
