Institutional Analytics & Reporting (IAR) is the central university organization responsible for providing access to actionable and accurate information, we lead the OSU community to organize, strengthen and advance institutional reporting, analytics and data literacy across the institution.
IAR is creating more dynamic, interactive tools for data informed decision making. These tools will access and report census data from Institutional Research and operational data from Banner and other operational systems to support the University Strategic Plan and other key initiatives.
In an effort to bring consistency and clarity to our use and understanding of university data, IAR is developing a common Data Dictionary which includes the official operational, business, and technical definitions as well as relevant metadata for the terms and data elements most commonly used at OSU. The university Data Stewards and Data Governance Council will review and vet the definitions for accuracy.
Some of the legacy tools we have historically used to access data and meet local data reporting needs are no longer able to keep up with the demands of our increasingly complex data environment. To help support the transition to more reliable tools, start here.
Finding the reports or information you need can be daunting and confusing. Using the Amazon Lex chatbot technology, we are exploring better ways for you to intuitively navigate data resources, to find exactly the report or data you need. All you need to do is ask.
