Tableau and The UC Tableau User Group

Tableau is the tool of choice for analytics at UCOP. We have found it to be a great data exploration tool and created the UC Information Center using Tableau.

UC Tableau User Group (UC TUG)

UC TUG (UC Tableau Users Group) is a group of Tableau users stretching across the University of California system. We meet monthly to discuss product updates, share best practices, present how-tos, and provide critique for reports-in-development and much more. If you're a current user or are just interested in what the product can do, drop in! For more information or an Outlook invitation, contact Ola.Popoola@ucop.edu or Gregory.Boyer@ucop.edu.

Benefits of Being a Part of the UC Tableau User Group

It helps everyone gets smarter with the tool as we share tips and best practices. It encourages networking and collaboration between Tableau users who can bring fresh perspectives to projects and initiatives across the UC system.
