Analytic and Visual Information Server (AVIS): The Office of Enterprise Data Management and Analytics (EDMA) encourages and supports the use of Tableau Desktop, an easy to use business intelligence tool which lets you drag and drop to analyze your data. Using Tableau is so easy that any Excel user can learn it and start building reports within minutes.
Tableau Desktop allows users to combine data from multiple sources such as an Excel worksheet and an Oracle database without any programming skills. Tableau is a fast and intelligent way to analyze data. Tableau reports can be shared through AVIS, the University’s Tableau server. Users who want to use AVIS should contact EDMA to set up an account.
We recommend two sources of training, both of which are free to GSU employees.
GSU's Department of Technology Services offers Tableau training. To explore their class offerings, click here. There are also additional training resources on LinkedIn's online training platform, Lynda, which can be accessed by clicking here.
