The Charge

Current business intelligence tools no longer meet the evolving business needs of the University. Thus, the University has decided to move from the current data warehouse solution to Ellucian software products ODS (Operational Data Store) and EDW (Enterprise Data Warehouse). In addition, a new reporting tool will be installed and implemented. BRM (Banner Relationship Management), RAP (Recruiting and Admissions Performance) and SRP (Student Retention Performance) will also be implemented.

Ultimately, Information Services shall implement the new products to ensure our customers have access to consistent, timely data for analysis and reporting. The existing Data Warehouse solution will continue to be supported for the next several years until the transition is complete.

Alignments With the OSU Strategic Plan

  • RAP & SRP will assist with target goals of increasing First-Year Rentention and Six Year graduation rate by identifying students not meeting their goals
  • RAP & SRP will assist with target goals of recruiting high achieving students and minority students by identifying and targeting these students for recruitment
  • ODS/EDW will assist with improving the information infrastructure to support the University
