Helping People Turn Raw Data Into Valuable Insights.

At Playfair Data, our mission is to be the best resource for turning raw data into valuable insights. We believe the key to extracting value from data is visualization – which is why our name is a nod to the inventor of data visualization, William Playfair. Our fanatical focus is on the processes and tools that allow us to communicate data in a way that causes positive actions for organizations all over the world.

Where We Started.

Playfair Data was founded by Ryan Sleeper, the only person in the world to earn the titles of Tableau Zen Master, Tableau Iron Viz Champion, and Tableau Public Visualization of the Year author. Ryan started Playfair Data as a way to make a larger impact on the world with data.

Who do you work with?

In short – everyone. We have worked with many Fortune 500 companies, as well as upstarts looking to use data analytics to make their big break. We’re just as happy to work with the world’s best known brands as we are local non-profits. You won’t find their logos or names listed here because we believe that the practice of data analytics should be private, genuine, and trustworthy.
