This presentation will discuss the techniques we developed to meet those goals for the migration.

General Interest

ODS / EDW Reporting

Kern CCD is leveraging Banner ODS (Operational Data Store) to deliver reports (enrollment management, budget management and HR/Payroll related reports) that managers need to make data-driven decisions. Empowering management and staff with the ability to create their own reports is one of the most valuable aspects of any reporting solution. Nontechnical users encounter unanticipated questions almost every day and certainly every week. Pre-programmed reports created by a vendor will not answer those questions. If your reporting tools are too complex for management and staff; if technical help is required every time a basic report is needed—what is the cost then? Empower your management and staff. Free the data … and then let your IT groups, power users and analysts concentrate on the “hard stuff.”
