Tableau is an interactive visualization tool that can be used to create customized dashboards and generate compelling business insights through the use of powerful analytics.

By requesting a report on the ServiceNow catalog, Liberty University’s Analytics and Decisions Support teams (ADS) will consult with you to determine what reporting tools and methods will best fit your needs. If Tableau is the best fit, they will work with you to develop a customizable dashboard where you may easily manipulate and configure your report to your liking.
