University of the Fraser Valley

A fully accredited, public university that enrolls approximately 16,000 students per year.

The Challenge

University of the Fraser Valley

The university came to Information Builders with several goals: Improve cumbersome process of gathering information from disparate relational databases and Banner ERP system; merge student data for consolidated reporting; and provide metrics about enrollment, academics, programs registration, and other domains.

The Strategy

The university was able to consolidate its data warehouse by replacing Microsoft Access queries with WebFOCUS reports displaying student and academic data in variety of formats.

The wider dissemination of data will lead to better decision-making as well as enhanced buy-in from faculty and staff, since they will now be able to examine data for themselves.

The Outcome

WebFOCUS has transformed the way faculty and staff consume information. Users can develop interactive reports and dashboards for key constituencies.The university can base planning decisions on evidence, measure progress, and compare performance across instructional areas.
