Using Tableau with Webi at University System of New Hampshire: From Novice to Knowledge

As report designers, we need to use the best tool for each job. With more than a thousand hands-on consumers of 32,000+ reports, Web Intelligence is our go-to reporting solution at the University System of New Hampshire. Then came Tableau with its bubble charts and heat maps and dashboards and data stories. Not to worry! Tableau experts were hired so that we, Webi developers, could stay happily ensconced in our reporting world. That is until this year when our supervisor tasked each Webi developer with creating a Tableau solution using Webi data. This case study will walk through our learning process, some pitfalls as well as best practices that we learned, and ultimately demonstrate the creation of a call center dashboard using Webi data and Tableau visualizations.

Tableau with BusinessObjects: Bring out the Best of Both Worlds

Learn why and how Tableau with Business Objects is the best combination for enterprise BI. The use cases for Tableau dashboards with BO content and tips and tricks designing BO content for Tableau will be discussed. Deployment and scheduling of BO content to Tableau desktop and Tableau server will be demonstrated and if we have time we may look at bursting out Tableau workbooks as well.

Unsure Which Dashboarding Tool to Use?

HTML5, PowerBI, Tableau, Web Intelligence…. What is happening with Adobe and Flash? What about Java? What are my alternatives? In this topic, we will take a look at all of the above. Frankly and sincerely, there has never been a better time for InfoBurst for Dashboards than now. Clients using InfoBurst are in THE BEST position to transition to practically any dashboarding front end display tool without needing to modify the data source. Are you using QAAWS (Query as a Web Service) to power SAP Dashboards to flash or HTML5? Move to InfoBurst to offload the sessions and load. Are you wanting to transition to Tableau or Power BI? Go ahead – your XDCs can work there! Want to use SQL directly as a data source for some dashboards? Sure! Need to improve performance with cache queries instead of huge upfront queries? InfoBurst is the expert! Need to expose some data externally but not link directly to an internal data source? You guessed it – CAN do! And so much more. If you aren’t sure what dashboard front end you will be using over the next few years and/or if you want to give your users the option to use various front ends, then now is the absolute BEST time for InfoBurst for Dashboards.
