About this paper
As demand grew for more flexible and accessible reporting at the nation's second-largest university, the Institutional Research team found itself spending an undue amount of time assembling data from dispersed sources (if it was even possible) and doing custom programming to respond to special requests.
To give users better access to information – and self-service reporting with sort/filter/drill/export capabilities – UCF converted legacy PDF and Excel reports into new Web-based reports using SAS® data integration and business intelligence tools. Full-time staff members now have secure, online access to a suite of user-friendly, interactive reports for on-demand access to current and historical information about enrollment and degrees.
