Business Intelligence

At the ERP/BI Competence Center, we operate, maintain and configure the TU Dortmund University's business intelligence solution based on Cognos software for the administration. A Business Intelligence (BI) system provides systematic reporting based on centrally provided validated and historicized data.

Cognos is used to select, validate and uniformly prepare the data relevant to reporting from a wide variety of procedures and systems at TU Dortmund University, e.g. Campus Management and the SAP system. Based on this, the administration and decentralized user groups can be provided with reports using the normalized and validated data.

Support provided by ERP/BI Competence Center for BI systems and applications includes:

  • installation, maintenance and configuration of the Cognos systems,
  • monitoring the interfaces to the data-providing systems,
  • design and implementation of data extraction, transformation and loading processes,
  • error analysis, description and reporting,
  • support for report creation
  • user and authorization management.
