How to grow a Tableau service that empowers analysts, reaches broad audiences and consolidates costs

-

Is your campus clamoring for Tableau?  Do you have a proliferation of Tableau Desktop/Creator licenses but limited options for deploying visualizations and content securely and to the right audiences?  Learn how one UC campus is leveraging a consortium model to stand up a Tableau enterprise server with the shared goals of

  • bringing on new campus partners quickly and efficiently;
  • freeing analysts from software management tasks while offering them the control to manage their content and users; and
  • consolidating licensing, infrastructure and administration costs.

This presentation will include both technical and functional partner perspectives on how we have architected, implemented, and continue to grow our Tableau ecosystem, plus how we have chosen to divvy roles and responsibilities.  Discover if some of the approaches that we are taking may fit your organization.

Anticipated takeaways:

  • Architecture overview
  • Security and provisioning approach
  • Use of Tableau APIs
  • Roles and responsibilities of central administrators vs. local data experts
  • Skill levels required of functional partners to be successful
  • Future road map
