As announced last fall, EWU Business and Finance selected Tableau, a web-based modern analytics platform, as our replacement tool for Oracle Discoverer Plus/Viewer. We completed the in-house training with the pilot group in January and the group began working on converting existing Discoverer reports into Tableau. In addition, we have deployed Tableau Server that contains published content such as reports and dashboards. If the campus community wants to be familiar with Tableau, please see Tableau Web-based Training Material for training opportunities. In addition, every month we are going to offer an open-lab session for current and new users. To check for upcoming sessions, go to the Training Scheduler.

Oracle Discoverer Plus/Viewer (an ad hoc query tool) is approaching the end of its life cycle and therefore EWU Business & Finance has selected Tableau to transition users from Discoverer over the next several months. Currently in the pilot phase, the Tableau implementation team is working on a campus-wide roll-out plan with training options consisting of live demonstrations, online self-study tutorials, and open labs to assist users with questions and conversion of existing Discoverer queries.
