Data Management & Reporting Services
ITS offers, as a service, centralized databases that are secure, stable, and professionally managed. We develop and support datamarts such as the Student Administration Datamart (SADM), the Kuali Financial Datamart (KFDM), and the much anticipated Human Resource/Payroll Datamart (HRPYDM). We also administer and support reporting systems and offer reporting and analytics support services using the WebFOCUS reporting tool. Additional information can be found on Our Services page.
Over the past few months, ITS has taken steps to upgrade WebFOCUS from version 8.1.05 to version 8.2.06. With this upgrade will come many strategic reporting enhancements in functionality. A driving factor behind the WebFOCUS upgrade was the transition from the AIX operating system/platform to Linux by September 30, 2020.
To date, the reporting teams have installed, configured, migrated, and tested WebFOCUS in several environments. Teams from all over the University will soon begin user acceptance testing. We elected to use the Legacy User Interface to make this phase of the upgrade easier. While it will look very similar to what you use today, there are some important things to know, especially if you use InfoAssist or if you upload files. Please visit the Upgrade Information & Additional Resources page for helpful documentation related to the upgrade.
