I want to be able to get this data and wondering if there is a solution outside of asking our IT team to review the confluence database.
This would be an awesome feature btw, in terms of when I need to roll out comms and Confluence and want to make sure the right number of people and the appropriate people has seen it. To identifying top traffic areas for spaces that we use like an Intranet.
You have two options:
You could enable the Confluence Usage Stats plugin and you would be able to see anonymous viewing stats for all pages: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/View+Space+Activity
You could install the viewtracker plugin: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/ch.bitvoodoo.confluence.plugins.viewtracker
which has an option to see all viewers of a page (which is more similar to your original request), but you have to make sure to put it on every page you want to gather statistics for.
We do a combination of both, that way you can see the top pages, but also make sure that for particular pages the right people see the page.
We develop a small plugin which gathers some stats about Confluence spaces and has also a user tracking feature,
https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.vertuna.confluence.plugins.spaceauditor (however, it will not show you the stats from the past, to get that you will need to parse your server access logs)
