Reporting and Analytics

Last updated: August 11, 2022

With the BI Portal, users gain access to UW data through dozens of customizable reports and data dashboards. You can use these off-the-shelf tools to answer the most common questions with data from key subject areas including Student, Finance, HR/Payroll, and Research Administration.

You can also connect to and explore multi-dimensional data cubes. Unlike a report that displays data across 2 dimensions, a cube is a powerful data analysis tool that allows users to slice and dice data across multiple dimensions.

While you can browse the catalog of reporting and analytics tools with your UW netid, you need an ASTRA role and permission to access reports, dashboards, and cubes on the BI Portal.

***Note: BI Portal and UW Profiles have been redesigned and consolidated into the new BI Portal.***

BI Portal

The feature-packed Business Intelligence (BI) Portal is your one-stop catalog, connecting you to UW’s Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) central reports, dashboards (including dashboards previously housed in UW Profiles) and data cubes.
