Business Intelligence (BI)

Business Intelligence (BI) is a reporting tool that allows users to view account and transaction details.

On Campus Training

Users are encouraged to attend the Business Intelligence (BI) Finance Lab Sessions hosted monthly by Budget and Financial Reporting Services.

Representatives from budget and financial reporting, purchasing services and accounts payable will be on hand to help answer any expenditure related BI questions.

Each session gives each campus user the opportunity to ask specific BI questions and learn how to monitor your departmental budgets and expenditures with ease.
