Aspire Public Schools Selects Tableau to Deliver School and Student Dashboards and Business Intelligence to Over 700 Employees

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

Tableau Software, the global leader in rapid-fire business intelligence software, today announced that Aspire Public Schools has adopted Tableau to provide live, interactive dashboards, graphics and reports to over 700 staff across 25 locations. Principals, deans, teachers, and managers in Aspire’s home office will access data to make decisions that best support student achievement. Aspire Public Schools is a not-for-profit charter management organization that builds and operates high quality public charter schools that prepare urban students for college. Currently, Aspire manages 21 schools and employs over 1,000 employees.

With support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, Aspire licensed Tableau to play a key part in fulfilling the organization’s vision of providing its staff members with role-based dashboards that are timely, understandable, and actionable. Aspire needed business intelligence software that could roll out across multiple locations, connect to multiple data sources and scale with Aspire’s rapid growth. As importantly, they needed a solution that would enable people of any skill level to draw insights from a single portal embedded with live, interactive data visualizations, reports and graphics. "Aspire Public Schools chose Tableau because it was designed with human beings in mind,” said Lynzi Ziegenhagen, Director of Special Projects for Aspire Public Schools. “Tableau's design and features support the processes that lead to effective data-driven decision making: finding the story, telling the story, and understanding the story so the right people can do something about it."
