Tableau

Tableau is a business intelligence data visualization tool that allows users to interact with data through dynamic and interactive dashboards, maps, and other presentation formats.  [apir.wisc.edu]Academic Planning & Institutional Research sponsors UW-Madison’s implementation of Tableau and has published many visualizations that are publically available.

UW-Madison has also implemented an environment to share Tableau visualizations within our own campus community.  To-date, 16 Tableau workbooks have been put into production that are accessible to all UW-Madison staff depending your role at UW-Madison. Currently, the core team will be reaching out to different administrative departments to engage their staffs in creating and publishing more visualizations to the Enterprise Tableau Server.  Publishing workbooks to the UW-Madison Enterprise Tableau Server is currently limited to administrative units and offices that have an institution-wide service role to deliver data to campus audiences.
