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
