Enterprise Tableau Server project begins roll out with PSC

Example of a Tableau dashboardPartnering with Tableau users from across campuses, departments, and OIT, the University Information Services (UIS) team migrated the Procurement Service Center to the enterprise Tableau server on Wednesday, Oct. 20. 

PSC is the first team to make the transition and begin working on the enterprise server. Feedback from stakeholders has been positive and subsequent implementations will benefit from PSC’s experience. Upcoming migrations include CU Boulder, CU Denver, Health Compass and CU School of Medicine, with their existing users using the new server by the year’s end.

For Tableau users, the benefits of an enterprise server include enhanced collaboration opportunities, added functionality offered within the latest server, and increased system processing capabilities. For the university overall, the move to the new Tableau contract agreements will deliver almost $1 million in cost savings over five years and enable more efficient, centralized leadership for upgrades, performance and support. 

"It was great to be the first to go-live with the new Tableau Server," said Kelly Richter, PSC business intelligence analyst. "The transition was smooth and virtually flawless. I'm excited that the new enterprise Tableau server will enable more data-driven decisions that create value and savings." 

Lisa Damboise, the UIS product owner for Tableau and the assistant director of Data & Business Intelligence, expressed appreciation for all the teams that have been working across UIS and campuses to ensure each migration is efficient with minimal disruption to business as usual. 

“Thank you to all who worked so diligently to make this significant step forward in the deployment of the enterprise-wide version of Tableau,” said Damboise. “Teamwork and shared goals made this first implementation successful, and we’re looking forward to those same results with upcoming migrations.”
