CU's enterprise data visualization tool

Tableau is a business intelligence tool that helps people see and understand data. With interactive data visualizations that can handle large amounts of data and robust analytics, Tableau helps organizations be more data-driven in their decisions. 

UIS provides an enterprise server platform to CU customers for direct data sharing use. The Tableau server is available on the UIS website, Cherwell and all applicable systems with additional authentication through PingFederate.

If you are new to CU or a new user of Tableau, please visit our Getting Started with Tableau at CU guide. (You may need to be on a CU VPN for access.) All CU Tableau users are encouraged to join CU's Tableau User Group (TUG), which meets three times a year, at the beginning of each semester. The purpose of TUG is to share knowledge, tips and trick, and connect Tableau Users. Sign up for invitations to Tableau trainings and TUG webinars at TUG Communications.
