I have no idea how widespread its usage is. I do know that it is used as a teaching tool inside several departments in the College of Business. In addition, a number of users in administration and other colleges use it for both teaching, research and administrative functions. There is some discussion of an internal user group but nothing has gelled so far.

10 - 10 Business Analysts currently use Tableau Desktop with 130+ server users. Business functions include operations, finance, and sales. Dashboards are used to monitor sales and budgets, production equipment, Concur T&E, finance metrics, and shipping logistics. We have just introduced a new self-serve dashboard (using Tableau's web authoring feature) that will all users to quickly view data from a predefined extract. This will allow non-technical business users to quickly and efficiently interrogate their data.
