Welcome to the Tableau section of my blog, where I share my knowledge and experience with one of the world’s most popular data visualization tools. As someone who has worked with and used Tableau for years, I’m passionate about helping others master this powerful tool and make the most of its capabilities.
In this section, you’ll find a variety of tutorials on topics such as building visualizations, creating dashboards, and using Tableau’s advanced features. I’ll also share stories and insights from my time working with Tableau, including tips and tricks for getting the most out of the tool.
Whether you’re new to Tableau or an experienced user looking to take your skills to the next level, these tutorials and stories will give you the practical knowledge and insight you need to succeed. I believe Tableau has the power to change the way we think about and interact with data, and I’m excited to share that vision with others.
So join me on this journey as we explore the world of Tableau together and discover new ways to unlock the full potential of your data.
What a great start to the new year: I am absolutely thrilled and grateful that my book, Decisively Digital, is the #1 best-selling Computers & Technology Industry book on Amazon!
When I first started writing this book, I had a strong belief in the message that I wanted to share with the world. I wanted to share my insights and experiences on how businesses can harness the power of digital technologies to drive growth and success by interviewing thought leaders from a variety of industries.
I hope that Decisively Digital will continue to inspire and empower readers to embrace the digital age and harness the full potential of technology for their own businesses and organizations. Thank you again for all of your support, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds!

Earlier today I read the news from NetBlocks (via Reuters) that since the weekend parts of the Ukrainian internet traffic are rerouted via Russia. To be precise, it’s about Ukrainian Kherson Oblast, which is occupied by Russia since March.
Now I wanted to trace the internet route myself and ideally visualize it. Here I came across the service of GeoTraceroute, which does a great job in visualizing traceroutes (aka. tracert). For the trace, I chose Frankfurt as starting point, and skynet.ua, the local internet provider in Kherson, as the endpoint.
Of course, you can also include the URL of GeoTraceroute as a web element in your Power BI report or Tableau dashboard and parameterize it for dynamic interactions. You can see the format as in my example:
The publisher of Decisively Digital, Wiley, has informed me that our book is now officially nominated for the prestigious Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award 2021.
The nomination itself is a very big achievement. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that we win this award!
Thank you, everyone, for making this possible — and for the uplifting and inspiring words:
