The Institutional Research and Academic Planning (IRAP) unit of UCOP is investing money, time and resources in both the Tableau Desktop Professional and Tableau Enterprise Server software.  Tableau is the award-winning business intelligence software for faster data analysis and better business dashboards. See your data clearly using our data visualization capabilities. No deployment. No waiting, just instant results.

The desktop software in conjunction with the Tableau Public Edition, which is a free hosting server product, was utilized to create the currently deployed version of the new UC Information Center.

Tableau has provided IRAP the opportunity to do the following:

  • Monitor and analyze student test performance.
  • Use institutional data to promote undergraduate success.
  • Evaluate institutional performance against institutional goals.
  • Measure and optimize giving patterns.
  • Share admissions, enrollment and degree outcomes statistics.
  • Share insights about the University of California across the entire organization.
  • Find trends in student satisfaction.

The IRAP unit is available to provide direction on how to get started with Tableau and how to get a public or private site up and running. Please direct all your questions and requests for assistance to
