Business Intelligence is a primary focus for Information Services, as the sheer volume of data continues to increase and as we all need to analyze that data in ever more sophisticated ways. Accordingly, we are developing an implementation of Banner Operational Data Store and Enterprise Data Warehouse and a new reporting tool. Collectively, these are known as ODS/EDW. In the meantime, Information Services continues to support the existing Data Warehouses and Data Marts for the OUS and OSU communities.
