Business Intelligence @ Griffith
See the Planning and Statistics Portal (PSP) to access the reporting suites.
Here at Griffith, we are using Business Intelligence to provide a coherent picture of the University using data from various sources. We then arrange this data within relevant reporting suites on the PSP. This portal (staff only) enables easy self-services access to this information which allows you to answer questions quickly and accurately.
The PSP will enable a better understanding of:
- The University;
- Groups, schools and research centres;
- Courses and programs;
- Your students.
This will be achieved through:
- Using standardised definitions and logic.
- Drawing information from multiple systems.
- Creating a 'single sources of truth'.
Please note accessing the PSP works best with Internet Explorer and Firefox, other browers give inconsistent results.
What is Business Intelligence?
Business Intelligence is a set of theories, methodologies, architectures, and technology that integrates and transforms raw data of an organisation from multiple sources into meaningful and useful information that supports better business decision making. Please see below a high-level overview of the BI process.
How can you get involved?
In order to meet your needs, we are actively seeking input and feedback from as many staff as we can. We regularly hold workshops to understnad the needs of staff for ech of our upcoming releases.
