Analytic and Visual Information Server

Decision Support Services (DSS) 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 DSS to set up an account.  DSS offers Tableau desktop and server training to the University community.
