Data Warehouse/Data Mart
institutional research, planning & assessment
Boston College’s Data Warehouse is a repository of the University’s electronic data sourced from a variety of systems. The companion Data Mart integrates these data for analytical reporting via the business intelligence tool, Cognos.
Institutional Research and Information Technology Services co-manage these resources collaboratively in an effort to…
- Improve the integrity of institutional data, resulting in greater accuracy, timeliness, and quality of information for decision-making
- Document and communicate sufficient information about the data to allow users to interpret institutional data correctly and consistently
- Integrate data that exists in unrelated source systems
