BINGHAMTON UNIVERSITY BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE
Binghamton University has invested in SAS, a state of the art Business Intelligence
platform for building custom reporting dashboards that support data-driven decision
making. Information Technology Services’s highly-skilled data team will contextualize
and visualize the data in your project. SAS is instrumental for querying the Operation
Data Store (ODS).
To ensure the appropriate information is available through the SAS platform, BU has set up the Senior Officers SAS Committee to oversee security and access, and to ensure the content is consistent.
Whether you're a data scientist, business analyst, statistician or forecaster, you'll discover the real power of SAS® to explore, analyze and visualize data. Through the power of analytics, SAS transforms a world of data into a world of intelligence. SAS’s vision is to transform a world of data into a world of intelligence. Their mission is to empower and inspire with the most trusted analytics – to make it easier for more people to use powerful analytics every day, to shorten the path from data to insight – and to inspire bold new discoveries that drive progress. The result is analytics that breaks down barriers, fuels ambitions and gets results.
CANNED QUERIES DASHBOARDS
The Canned Queries dashboards are built with data from the Banner Student Information System that have been pre-constructed for end users, who simply need to choose filters from a drop-down list to generate an exportable list of the data they need. The dashboards are accessed with a modern web browser such as Chrome or Firefox. You can access the dashboards here (keep in mind if working remotely, the user needs to establish a VPN/Pulse session to get to this link).
Canned queries are currently available for a number of categories, including:
- Student Information
- Class Lists
- Student Grades
- Course Catalog
- Course Schedules
- Degrees Awarded
- Degree Candidates.
