Analytical Processing As Executive Decision Support At The University Of Missouri System

Wednesday, January 1, 1992

Abstract

The 1990s will see the rise of analytical processing based on select data elements warehoused as archival, integrated, and subject oriented relational records. LAN-based software will support managers and analysts in quickly creating "programs" of linked analytical and reporting tools dynamically exchanging data. Such a system is nearing the end of a two-year pilot at the four-campus University of Missouri System. The project's goal is to produce a comprehensive warehouse of student, personnel, financial, and course data accessed by Metaphor's DIS software to support reporting and executive decision making. The project represents a fundamental change in the relationship among System computing, System administrative offices, and data custodians for the independent campus-based transaction systems. The paper will place analytical processing in the context of executive decision support, report on the pilot of the U/IDS project, and will demonstrate DIS reporting and ad hoc capabilities.
