Due to recent service enhancements, campus staff now have the same view to Enterprise Analytics (Cognos) as UFIT staff. The Cognos software upgrade produced immediate benefits.
Collaborating with COMPASS work groups on their report specifications, and with the Registrar’s Office and College of Business on refining objects for scheduled and ad hoc reports, are some recent examples of the improved Enterprise Analytics environment. Application data from these collaborations are being shared with CLAS, UF Online, and the Colleges of Law and Engineering, leveraging efforts for the benefit of all campus student data consumers.
Campus spoke…UFIT listened: Improvements to the Reporting Analytics (ERA100) and Report Authoring (ERA200) online trainings are underway and will include removing “extra” features and focusing more on report authoring basics. Updated training is also coming via HR’s Enterprise Reporting Toolkits. Another option for learning how to get the most from Enterprise Analytics is to attend the monthly “Open Lab,” facilitated by UFIT’s Reporting Services staff. The Open Lab is held from 3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month, in 119 HR Building.
Please email Reporting Services with your questions about creating new reports, open lab hours, or the online training options.
