Talk involving UW Profiles wins best presentation at conference

A talk about UW Profiles, the UW’s interactive dashboards for accessing and understanding basic UW data, was honored as “Best Presentation” at the Pacific Northwest Association for Institutional Research and Planning’s annual conference. The talk last month by Nevena Lalic of the Office of Planning & Management’s Institutional Analysis team and Bart Pietrzak of UW-IT’s Enterprise Data & Analytics was selected from among 30 presentations for its especially helpful ‘how to’ content on using Tableau with institutional data and working with the IT organization to structure that data. Pietrzak, a Business Intelligence Architect, and Lalic, a Senior Analyst, are collaborating on a proposal to adapt the presentation, “Exposing Basic Institutional Stats Using Interactive Tableau Dashboards,” for the Association’s national conference in May. UW Profiles was created jointly by UW-IT and the Office of Planning & Budgeting, now a unit within the newly named Planning & Management office.
