New! Tableau Data Visualization
Tableau Software is the data visualization platform chosen for use with UW Enterprise Data Warehouse data, following a multi-month pilot in partnership with 20 academic and administrative units. Tableau is used to visualize large data sets and helps simplify their meaning, promote understanding of those data sets, and communicate important concepts and ideas. Valuable information is stored in the University of Washington's growing data repositories and data visualization software is used to clearly convey that information using images, providing opportunities for understanding that data and for data-informed decision-making.
The Office of Planning and Budgeting and UW Information Technology Enterprise Data & Analytics have worked together to create UW Profiles. UW Profiles is an institutional dashboard portal, powered by Tableau Software, which provides a dynamic way to easily access, explore and understand basic University data.
The new, feature-packed Business Intelligence (BI) Portal is now live. This intuitive site connects you to UW Enterprise Data Warehouse central reports and analytics.
Star your favorites, see what's trending, get report recommendations, stay abreast of new releases, see the underlying SQL queries, peruse data definitions, read how others are using reports, add your feedback, and more. This guided tour shows you how.
