Integrated Data & Reporting (IDR) - Cognos

Service Description

Integrated Data and Reporting (IDR) consists of a data warehouse and a data reporting and analysis tool (Cognos BI).

The IDR Data Warehouse contains a subset of the information in Banner, including financial data, Human Resources data, and student data. The IDR Data Warehouse data is refreshed nightly and remains static during the day. It is useful for operational and ad-hoc reporting.

Cognos BI is an advanced IBM software product used to do reporting, data analysis, and querying on the IDR Data Warehouse.

Note: UO currently has two data warehouses: the older Data Warehouse, accessed via BI/Query tools, and the IDR Data Warehouse, which is still in the process of being developed and which can be accessed via Cognos tools. The two data warehouses will operate in parallel until the older Data Warehouse is phased out.
