About the Warehouse

A data warehouse is a central depository of information used to store both current and historical data. Through storing this data in a centralized and organized system, WOU is able to more easily distribute and analyze data in a fast and understandable manner. With this information, users can create reports using IBM’s Cognos Business Intelligence software. These reports present accurate and up-to-date information about various facets of the university and allow staff members to perform parts of their job smarter and faster.
