Data Analytics

The Analytics and Reporting office strives to capture enterprise-wide data on behalf of the university to provide a common platform for analytical reporting, meaningful insight, and actionable intelligence to enhance evidence-based decision-making.

Emory Business Intelligence (EBI) is a data analysis and reporting tool that consists of a data warehouse and a business intelligence user interface. EBI is the source for standard Emory reports that have been thoroughly tested and vetted by Emory users from across campus.

Currently, these reports contain primarily financial data but will ultimately include financial, student, HR, and any additional data deemed necessary by the enterprise.

Reports are being released incrementally in order to ensure accuracy and usability. You will receive more information about new reports as they are released.

About Business Intelligence

One of the goals of EBI is to help strengthen decision-making at Emory by aligning collaborative business intelligence and analytics with strategic performance management. This means elevating standard reporting to show us not only what has happened in the past but to help predict what will happen in the future; thus allowing us to make decisions now that will have a positive influence on future outcomes.

The Data Warehouse provides a single source for accurate, usable financial, student, and HR data for Emory University and ensures consistent data standards, controls, and definitions.

Currently, the data warehouse contains limited financial and student data with a focus on operational reporting. Future plans are to include data from student, human resources, and additional financial source systems and to elevate reporting to a more analytical and forward-thinking approach.
