Tableau Overview


Consolidating UCLA’s Tableau footprint by utilizing an enterprise Tableau instance serves as the foundational framework for the University’s data visualization needs. The enterprise Tableau servers create opportunities for a shared infrastructure environment which reduces university costs and allows for more collaborative community of UCLA's analytics teams across campus. The goals of this enterprise instance include:

  • Infrastructure SharingProvide Tableau as a service and liberate teams from setting up their own instance(s); allowing them to focus on building analytics benefiting the University
  • Community building: Establish a UCLA Tableau community by creating a network of Tableau developers, information sharing, and hosted webinars
  • Knowledge Sharing: Enable the flow of skills and techniques from units with more advanced Tableau analytic skills to data enthusiasts with beginner skills
