After a period of significant growth, Piedmont needed to better understand its data — but its MS SQL Server system just couldn’t scale, leading to security, speed, and cost issues.
While keeping Tableau’s front-end user interface for visualizations, Piedmont replaced its data warehouse component with Exasol.
“With Exasol analytics, we’ve seen significant improvements not only to our bottom line, but in patient satisfaction.”Mark Jackson, Head of Business Intelligence
With Exasol in place, Piedmont Healthcare’s executive leadership can access data to make informed, patient-focused decisions. More than 300 staff are now using Tableau Desktop – up from 24 people. This democratization of data has led to greater staff autonomy — teams are making their systems and data work for them.
