UDW+ contains many Pre-Built reports, within many Dashboards, across many Data Categories. These have been created and are maintained so that users can easily answer specific types of business questions.


UDW+ is a data warehouse. Information from a variety of source systems (Albert SIS, Workday, ServiceLink, fame, etc) are brought into UDW+ by an ETL process - Extract, Transform, and Load. This allows the data to be read by ordinary users in a format that is logical and orderly - several pre-built reports have been made and are available to users to answer common business questions.

There are many "Pre-built" reports (also referred to as canned reports, standard reports) and dashboards within every data category in UDW+. These are built, vetted, and are maintained by NYU IT and the Decision Support & Fianncial Analysis Group. They often, though not always, contain complex structures and calculations on the back-end that allows users to access the data in an easier-to-understand format/interface.
