The Business Intelligence Center (BIC) builds and maintains official internal operational University reports and supports the CORE, GRS and OSUF reporting systems. The BIC and Analytics teams work together to provide the OSU community with decision support through the development of operational and strategic reports and dashboards, training for University ad hoc reporting and analytics tools, such as Jaspersoft and Tableau, as well as consultations and analytical support for University priorities and initiatives. Contact the Data Reference Desk for more information.
Tableau is a business intelligence software used for data analysis, providing visual tools to help users visualize and make meaning of data. You can connect to data sources that you already have access and permissions to, then use drag and drop tools to visualize and create interactive dashboards that can then be shared for internal University use.
