Matthew Pickus has worked at the University of Michigan's Office of University Development for more than two years. During this time he's helped push the transition from the use of flat-file reports to the more strategic use of Tableau and data visualizations. He has created numerous high-profile visualizations that provide management with information that was impossible to achieve prior to implementation of Tableau.
