Data Warehouse

Query and Reporting Tools


The data warehouse is accessed using an end-user query and reporting tool from Business Objects. Business Objects provides several tools to securely access the data warehouse or personal data files with a point-and-click interface including the following:

  • BusinessObjects (Reporter and Explorer) ? a Microsoft Windows based query and reporting tool.
  • InfoView - a web based tool, that allows reports to be refreshed on demand (but can not create new reports).
  • InfoBurst - a web based server tool, that allows reports to be refreshed, scheduled and distributed. It can be used to distribute reports and data to users or servers in various formats (e.g. Text, Excel, PDF, HTML, etc.). For more information, see the documentation below:
  • Data Warehouse List Upload  - a web based tool, that allows lists of data to be uploaded into the data warehouse for use as input to queries. For more information, see the documentation below:

WSU has negotiated a contract with Business Objects for purchasing these tools at a discount. View BusObj Rates
