UM Analytics is the University of Minnesota Business Intelligence and Data Analytics platform. Based on data in the Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW), it provides a platform for central units at the University (Finance, Human Resources, Research, Student, and University Services) to pre-build and publish content that utilizes University approved data definitions. It also enables campuses, colleges, units, and individuals to author their own ad hoc analyses, dashboards and visualizations.

  • Use a self-service data query builder to create your own data sets
  • Author advanced dashboards and visualizations
  • Share dashboards on behalf of a college/unit as a UM Analytics College Unit author
  • Export dashboards and data in multiple formats
  • The Enterprise Data Subject Area Map outlines targeted subject areas that will be included in the Enterprise Data Warehouse, and the development status and timeline of each subject area.
