University Data Warehouse


The University Data Warehouse is the central authoritative data source for the University. It provides support for reporting, ad hoc data queries, and analytics. The Oracle-based database is comprised of student, financial, and employee data originating in several University systems. These include the Student Information System (PeopleSoft), PRISM, and PantherExpress (purchase orders). Columns from existing and new systems are regularly added to the Data Marts to meet new reporting and analytics needs.

How do I connect to the Data Warehouse?

Access to the University Data Warehouse is available through supported tools (Cognos and Tableau), as well as direct access through a SQL client. Security is governed by a federated authorization process that ensures individuals have access to the data required to be successful in their jobs.
