The Orange County Tableau User Group (OCTUG) met at the DECIPHER™ Theater on June 9, 2015 for our Summer 2015 Meeting. Competitive Analytics hosted the User Group meeting to give local Tableau users the opportunity to network with other analysts (ranging from beginner to expert level Tableau users) and gain new tips and tricks for utilizing Tableau to its full potential. Speakers included: David Savlowitz, CEO, Competitive Analytics; Charlie Maier, Manager Commercial Sales, Tableau; and Joe Mako, Director of Visual Analytics, Rosenblatt Securites.

During David Savlowitz’s presentation, attendees were surveyed on five questions related to business intelligence and analytics. Below are the results of the survey questions.
