Notice of Intent to Sole Source 49100422P0031: BI Connector renewal

The National Science Foundation (NSF) intends to negotiate a sole source purchase renewal order with Guidanz, Inc.

The purpose of this sole source renewal is to continue connection to the Tableau Server to OBIEE and create intuitive visualizations easily. OBIEE is currently being used as the Enterprise reporting and analytics tool at NSF. To meet the growing need of Data Visualization capabilities, Business users in other Directorates are already using Tableau software. A combination of OBIEE and Tableau software will address the reporting, analytics and data visualization needs at NSF. Tableau Reader is already included in the DIS Technical Reference Model. Enterprise Reporting team utilizes Tableau Desktop software with BI connector for OBIEE to support existing Business users using Tableau software.

Given the aforementioned, the BI Connector - Desktop is a plug-in which provides a simple way to connect to connect Tableau Desktop to OBIEE. It also allows the reuse of existing metadata, create visualizations and publish as a Data Source for Tableau.
