University leadership utilizes data and metrics to inform decisions regarding resource allocation, new programs or initiatives, and how best to use existing resources to move the institution forward. Data Analytics within Financial Services is invested in furthering the campus through decision support with the use of data analytics.
The teams within Financial Services provide planning and decision support to the campus community. The departments within Financial Services provide data reporting analytics through the use of various tools. Our teams are in the process of replacing existing tools with new tools to enhance our work.
Oracle Discoverer Plus/Viewer (an ad hoc query tool) is approaching the end of its life cycle and therefore EWU Business & Finance has selected Tableau to transition users from Discoverer over the next several months. Currently in the pilot phase, the Tableau implementation team is working on a campus-wide roll-out plan with training options consisting of live demonstrations, online self-study tutorials, and open labs to assist users with questions and conversion of existing Discoverer queries. More information regarding Tableau implementation will be provided in January of 2019.
