Tableau helps Goodwill Education leverage data

Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA) said that Goodwill Education Initiatives of Indiana has selected Tableau to visualize and understand its data.

Goodwill Education, a nonprofit organization focused on adult education, uses Tableau to analyze data on student performance, measure the effectiveness of its programs, and reduce the time required to fulfill compliance reporting requirements. With Tableau, Goodwill Education is instilling a data-driven culture in an industry where data analysis often goes overlooked.

To analyze the performance of its students and the effectiveness of its programs, Goodwill Education previously relied on a system of manual data reviews that took as long as a week to complete for each school. It needed a tool that would let it quickly analyze data across multiple areas and create interactive reports to let its employees answer their own questions. After trying several other business intelligence solutions, including industry-specific analytics tools, Goodwill Education found Tableau to be the clear choice.

Today, four Goodwill Education employees are using Tableau Desktop to author dashboards, while approximately 200 employees view and interact with the published dashboards on Tableau Server. The nonprofit has expanded its data analysis services to 15 schools in the area.
