Explore and Visualize University Data with Tableau

Wednesday, February 1, 2017 - 15:49

 

The University of Pittsburgh has large quantities of operational data. The challenge is to find ways to make use of that data to support decision making, find insight, and measure key indicators.

To support these efforts, Computing Services and Systems Development now provides Tableau software to University of Pittsburgh staff. Tableau places an emphasis on visual analytics, allowing you to move quickly from question to insight.   

Data analysts who use the University Data Warehouse can request a license for Tableau Desktop via the Technology Help Desk.

You can use Tableau Desktop authoring software to create dashboards, workbooks, and analyses using data from the University Data Warehouse, local databases, spreadsheets, text files, and more. An easy-to-use interface enables you to quickly understand a dataset using filters, calculations, sets, and a range of data visualizations to discover insights.

This work can then be shared with University faculty and staff via the Tableau server available at https://analytics.pitt.edu. All Pitt faculty and staff members have access to the Tableau Server, though they will only be able to see dashboards and data for which they have permission.\

The University Data Warehouse (UDW) is the central authoritative data source for the University. It provides support for reporting, ad hoc data queries, and analytics. The University Data Warehouse is an Oracle-based database that is comprised of data originating in several University systems, including PeopleSoft, PRISM, and Courseweb. The data is extracted from those systems, optimized for speed and ease of use, and placed into data marts.
