OU Analytics - A Valuable Resource for Volunteers

As a reminder for continuing chapter chairs and for incoming chapter chairs for 2021, we would like to highlight a valuable resource available to you. Launched in 2018, IEEE OU Analytics, is a web-based business intelligence tool which delivers essential metrics on memberships or subscriptions to OUs, including Societies, Councils, Technical Communities, etc. Using Tableau platform, the intuitive interface leverages visualization technology to present data in multidimensional tables and charts. The landing page provides easy access to various dashboards which contains filters to refine by OU, Region, Section, Grade, and Gender. Counts provided on the dashboards can link directly to respective member contact details. The ability to search for one particular member by last name, first name or member number from the membership list is also available Selected volunteer positions in respective OUs have automatic access to their OU's data.
Based upon members' renewal status, OU Analytics delivers key statistics for active, new, renewing or arrears members that can be sorted or refined using various filters. It eliminates the need for volunteers to create/run queries from a data set (previously through SAMIEEE) which can sometimes lead to incorrect results. Doublet (overlapping) society membership and technical community/technical council data are also available.
The OU Analytics Geo Map offers geographic displays and interactive dashboard views of IEEE organization units. The Map provides key statistical facts by Region, IEEE/Society Member, Chapter, Student Branch, and Affinity Group and shows the concentration within all ten IEEE Regions. Hover over various views to display data counts. Data can be refined using the filters. The map also provides the ability to identify membership density for potential society chapters and student branches globally.
Data is updated daily and is pulled directly from IEEE's membership database, reflecting the most current information. Data and images can be downloaded using various formats. You will need your IEEE Account information to access. Please review the site for more information or feel free to contact us. There are recorded training webinars, presentations, FAQs, and Users Groups readily available to you as a resource, and one-on-one sessions can be scheduled, upon request.
OU Analytics Webinar Training Available: To receive customized or personalized training for a better understanding of how to use OU Analytics, please email ouanalytics@ieee.org or tad-chap-dev@ieee.org.
