Finance Data Analytics and Reporting Project


Following the conclusion of the Cornerstone Reporting Optimization (CRO) project, we initiated a new Finance Data Analytics and Reporting implementation phase. During this phase, we will create an integrated data warehouse that unifies data from all financial systems, establishing a Tableau reporting environment for self-service analytics and management reporting.

Evolution of Reporting and Analytics

What This Means for You


Data Warehouse

Provides a single source of integrated, validated, and timely finance data used for reporting. This will reduce or eliminate non-value added tasks (i.e. manually cleanse, map, integrate, validate, and reconcile data across multiple reports/systems).


Tableau Enterprise Server

Delivers a single finance reporting platform containing integrated data from multiple source systems. A 360-degree view of financial and administrative information will help you manage your business, gain insights, and enable informed decisions for improved outcomes.


Managed Reporting

Offers a set of standardized views that meet the needs for all users across the university. Standardized views for an intuitive, easy to navigate interface designed for you to access valuable and useful information for rapid analysis.


Self-Service Analytics

Brings a standardized tool to enable ad-hoc reporting and analysis, and allow experienced analysts to create customized views to analyze data tailored to your unique business needs.


Finance Data Analytics and Reporting Team

Functional, data analytics and finance reporting experts that will support you with the on-going development, enhancements, maintenance, governance, security, and administration of the finance analytics and reporting environment.
