University Analytics & Institutional Research at the University of Arizona
Access to critical data is paramount for any decision maker in an organization as they need to be able to query data with ease and at their convenience. Our Data Warehouse and Enterprise Resource Planning System (ERPS), along with UAccess Analytics, are used to capture, store, and analyze data and are considered the backbone of data processing for the University of Arizona.
Our data warehouse contains thousands of tables, each with potentially hundreds of elements, and extremely complex data relationships in each of those tables. Decision makers now can have access to that data at their fingertips through dashboards, reports, and ad hoc querying capabilities.
Dashboards and reports are good tools for monitoring operations. They also allow some analysis of root causes and can guide future activities. For the more advanced analyst, analysis includes the iterative visual scrutiny and predictive modeling to gain a more in-depth understanding of the data.
