The OTDI Tableau team is pleased to announce the launch of our first training, Tableau Server Fundamentals. This live, 45-minute zoom webinar is intended for anyone who accesses Tableau reports on the university’s server. At the end of training, attendees will learn how to navigate Tableau Server as well as how to set up subscriptions to regularly monitor data, create and save report parameters, and share data. This class will not cover how to create reports. See the full article for registration details.
All attendees must have a Tableau Server ID to participate. See the full article for steps on how to check your status as well as how to register for a session.
Last week, the Data and Analytics Team published a new dashboard to help data analysts better understand which datasets they have access to within the Reporting and Analytics Environment (RAE).
This new “RAE User Domain Access” dashboard displays a user’s name, login, and the list of domains and equivalent security groups to which they belong within the RAE. This membership governs the types of data available to them for querying.
In the fifth and final part of the three-year look back at Tableau series, we'll revisit the prior posts shared in the series and take a moment to see where the Tableau service is today at Ohio State and where it's headed.
The Moritz College of Law recently shared a news item about Professor Dennis Hirsch and the Ohio Data Ethics working group. The Moritz news blog post is being shared here for the benefit of OTDI data and analytics colleagues.
The working group is comprised of nine companies and The Ohio State University. The working group is comprised of nine companies and The Ohio State University. Participating group members representing OTDI include Chief Data Privacy Officer Holly Drake and Data Governance Program Director Laura Gast. The group follows Professor Hirsch’s materials and collaborates to evolve their own responsible and ethical artificial intelligence practices while promoting the trustworthy use of these technologies.
Read the full post and learn more about this working group and how they analyze the issue of being able to do something technically and legally, while looking though an ethics lens.
In part four of the three-year look back at Tableau series, comments from the Tableau 2022 survey will be shared to gain insight into the data and analytics goals of Ohio State thought leaders, business partners, and members of the Tableau community who responded to the survey.
In part three of the three-year look back at Tableau series, we’ll learn more about how the increased use of Tableau and the collaboration it affords has led to an actual Tableau community at Ohio State.
Starting the week of April 5, 2022, we will be working behind the scenes to reload the core Journal Line dataset from Workday into the Reporting and Analytics Environment (RAE), starting with January 2021 data and finishing through current day. The reload process is expected to be complete no later than April 15, 2022. We will load the data incrementally in monthly buckets due to the size of the files. Thus, during this 10-day period, updates will appear as the load steps complete.
There will be no system outage or downtime due to this work. Users, reports, and dashboards should not be affected. Updated and complete data will flow into your existing queries without any changes on your part. Once the reload is complete, we will send out a follow up notification.
Change is needed for any kind of growth or progress to happen, but as we know change is rarely easy. Part of our three-year look back at Tableau includes mention of the January 2021 Workday implementation at Ohio State and how Tableau lent a hand.
Welcome to the first installment of the Three Years of Tableau blog series .
