Summary : The University of Washington is rich with data — data with enormous potential for insight. At the UW, basic reporting tools were not enough to truly harness the power of the data. They needed interactive, visual data for exploration, discovery and understanding. In 2012, the UW conducted a six-month pilot deployment of Tableau as an enterprise data visualization platform. The pilot was successful and the UW now has the world’s largest higher education Tableau Desktop and Server installations. Learn how they did it — from pilot to rollout and from community building to institutional change — and leave inspired to harness your data riches.
