Adding Tableau to the Data Toolbox

As announced at the Data Users’ Group meeting on Jan. 20, WashU recently purchased licenses and a server for the data visualization software Tableau. We have not yet finalized the timeline for implementation of the server, but hope to do so in the next few months. Please continue to read the BIDW monthly e-news for updates about Tableau and how it will be released to interested users.

Several schools and departments have been using individual Tableau licenses for a number of years, and have established an active Tableau users group (WU TUG) on campus. BIDW encourages data users who are interested in obtaining a Tableau license in the future to take advantage of WU TUG’s weekly meetings and upcoming Tableau bootcamp to learn more about the product.
