In summer/fall 2020, the operation of Tableau Server was migrated from UW-Madison to UW System Administration (UWSA). Existing users at UW-Madison and UW-Whitewater were able to access the UW-Madison production server throughout the migration until the cutover date. Completion targets and the cutover date were adjusted as necessary to ensure the smoothest transition possible for existing users.
