About the Data Warehouse
WOU's Enterprise Data Warehouse is designed to be a single repository of all data generated by all of the systems at the university. Currently the data warehouse contains student data. The data is organized in a way that is designed for reporting and analysis.
Accessing the Data Warehouse
We currently use BI/Query as our reporting tool for the Data Warehouse. To access the Data Warehouse
you will need a Banner account.
Banner AccessTo get access to use the Data Warehouse, you will need to contact Faye Whitenack by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To get BI/QueryTo get BI/Query you will need to have a computer with the Windows XP Operating System. (If you have Windows 7 or you are a mac user, please see the help section of this page.) You will need to contact UCS to install BI/Query onto your machine. Once you have BI/Query on your machine, you will want to attend trainings to learn how to use the tool.
Various types of trainings are offered throughout the year. We encourage you to attend
as many as possible.
What if I have a mac? What if I do not have Windows XP?
For any additional help, please contact the UCS Service Request Desk
Cognos is a web-based BI (Business Intellegence) reporting tool that will replace BI Query in the future.
