What Do I Get? 

This service provides a custom report or database view with specific data elements that are created by combining multiple tables and views that are available throughout Rowan University.

Why Do I Want It? 

Custom reports and database views aggregate custom fields from different sources and are designed from various University data. Access to these reports, packages and database views can also provide a cost/benefit to the University and help conserve resources that might otherwise be spent gathering information from different sources on an ad-hoc basis. 

Most employees will be able to run reports that they have access to in Cognos to gather data. More advanced users may develop their own ad-hoc reports with drag and drop functionality through Query Studio in Cognos.
