Deployment in Public Sector: Tableau & Open Telekom Cloud

Data-driven decision making in healthcare

M2, Tableau

A modern, digital reporting format is to be established in a biomedical research facility. Together with our partners Open Telekom Cloud and Tableau, we are implementing the project to enable data-driven health monitoring for the customer.

Client situation

Our client is a biomedical research institution based in Berlin, which is entrusted with central tasks of public, nationwide healthcare. The goal of the joint project is to create digital and flexibly expandable report formats and to provide external users with interactive access to these reports. Web-accessible environments that are DSGVO-compliant will be built as part of the project.

Our partners

The two main partner technologies used in this project are Tableau and Open Telekom Cloud. The visualization and analysis tool Tableau helps its users to quickly visualize data and make it easier to understand. Open Telekom Cloud (OTC) offers Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) from the public cloud. Companies of all sizes and industries receive computing resources flexibly at the push of a button and benefit from all the advantages of a public cloud environment. Especially for German public sector companies that want to be guaranteed to meet European standards for data security, OTC technology is an attractive alternative.

Deployment in healthcare: Tableau and Open Telekom Cloud are used sensibly and performantly to evaluate the collected data.


Together with the customer, a corresponding project roadmap with the most important milestones of the project was defined and approved. Subsequently, the setup of two server instances was started; one server environment for internal, access-protected analyses and one for publicly available information. Subsequently, the dynamic dashboards defined with the customer will be developed and deployed on the respective server environments. At the same time, the internal employees are trained and enabled to independently manage and expand the reporting system in the future.

Project result

The planning, design, construction and operation of two Tableau server environments in Open Telekom Cloud with different access restrictions were implemented as required. High SLA requirements were met in the process. Interactive dashboards for the evaluation of antibiotic resilience, the spread of different pathogens, on the general health status of the population or the spread of SARS-CoV-2 are created and can be used for detailed, internal analyses. Publicly available information that can be viewed on the customer's official web portals is also created and published with Tableau. In addition, a holistic training concept with individualization based on customer-specific dashboard requirements is established in the company.
