Updated Reporting Tools

Overview

Enterprise Reporting, Query Studio, and FIT Cubes are changing to Enterprise Analytics, Report Author, and Analysis Studio.  These new tools are necessary upgrades for the University to continue to maintain and support vendor relations.

Enterprise Analytics

Starting May 1st, 2020, Enterprise Reporting will be replaced by Enterprise Analytics.  While the underlying data and report definitions are not changing, all HR, FI, and MFR will be stored in Enterprise Analytics.  Enterprise Analytics provides the University with enhanced self-service capabilities to upload data and quickly create dashboards.  The improved user interface provides more efficient navigation tools and easier searching capabilities.

Users are encouraged to explore the new Enterprise Analytics interface as soon as possible.  Enterprise Analytics is now available.  Please contact Reporting-Services@ufl.edu with any questions.    

Navigation: my.UFL Main Menu > Enterprise Analytics > Access Enterprise Analytics 

Report Author

Starting May 1st, 2020, all users will be required to use Report Author instead of Query Studio to modify reports.  The transition to Report Author will provide the University with enhanced collaboration between campus users and Reporting Services staff.  Compared to Query Studio, Report Author offers a more robust toolset useful for creating reports and visualizations.

Analysis Studio (Dynamic Cubes)

Starting July 1st, 2020, all users will be required to use Analysis Studio (Dynamic Cubes) instead of FIT Cubes.  Since FIT Cubes are being deprecated, Dynamic Cubes will be a new, fast and flexible tool necessary to maintain vendor support.
