What is LinPack? 

LinPack-for-Tableau is an online platform which creates Tableau dashboards automatically, in just 5 minutes.

It works for any business, any KPI and on any data model.

  • As a Business User, you will use LinPack as a solution to generate ready-to-use dashboards
  • As a Tableau Expert, you will use LinPack as a development accelerator

You can create dashboards from predefined templates or create your own custom dashboard with your own KPIs.

What LinPack solves? 

Building a DataViz has never been so easy.

However, creating a dashboard is still a challenge. Indeed, to create an impactful Tableau dashboard, you need three key elements:

  • DASHBOARDING DESIGN SKILLS: You must define what you want to create: Which dashboard layout? Which dashboard structure? What to display on each page? Which user experience? Which KPIs? Which Data Visualizations?
  • TABLEAU EXPERTISE: You must have the Tableau skills to actually build what you designed
  • RESOURCES: You must have time and/or budget to actually build your dashboard

LinPack proposes an answer to those three elements by providing you with pre-built dashboard designs based on market best-practices. Build and download your ready-to-use / ready-to-customize dashboard in minutes.

What is the concept behind LinPack? 

We observe that across all dashboards, across all business sectors, there are 80% of commonalities.

Instead of having you re-doing the same job for each dashboard, instead of having you reinventing the wheel for each dashboard, LinPack proposes to automate the creation of those 80%, letting you focusing on the remaining 20% difference makers.

What is the typical dashboard life-cycle when I use LinPack 

  1. You create an initial workbook where you map your data source(s)
  2. You create a first version of your dashboard using our Dashboard Templates or using the Custom Configuration mode
  3. You customize this dashboard in Tableau 
  4. You deploy it on your own Tableau Servers (or Tableau Online)
  5. Weeks afterwards, you can re-process your dashboard in LinPack to change KPI definitions, to add new KPI or new DataViz. Your customizations will be preserved.

I don't want to share my data 

LINPACK DOES NOT ACCESS YOUR DATA.

LinPack just requires a Tableau workbook file (twb file) in which you have been mapping your data sources. Such file only contains the definition of the structure of your data (name of the tables & columns), and not your data.

We are a swiss company, and in Switzerland, data confidentiality is really something in which we trust.
