1 Get the info you want – from anywhere at anytime – in 2 minutes Presenters: Sundar Kumarasamy Anne Marie Cilli PABUG Conference November 21, 2005

2 Introduction At times, getting information out of Banner could be time consuming and complicated for the non-technical end- user. Today, we will see how to creatively use Banner Object:Access to make end-user report writing simple.

3 Topics of discussion Examine the challenges of report writing in Banner Overview of Banner Object:Access / ODS Get all the info you want in less than 2 minutes – from anywhere at anytime – no kidding!

4 Report Writing in Banner Banner gives you the option of using the report writing tool of your choice Banner provides few standard reports Banner has no instant ad-hoc query tool

5 Typical Report Philosophy Usually if you need some information - you go to someone else End-user is dependent on technically trained staff for information (in any form -- labels, reports, mail-merge data)

6 SJU Reporting Philosophy Every single end-user should be able to get information independently n n in whatever form they want n n when they want it Information delayed is information denied! - Unknown SJU user

7 Why is report writing difficult? Due to the way Banner stores the data n n the main applicant data elements for each person are stored in 20+ different tables n n To write reports you need to know 100s of data elements, rules and characteristics from those 20+ tables

8 What is Object:Access / ODS? Banner Object:Access / ODS is a complex technical database architecture which provides direct and simplified access to thousands of data elements to make report writing easier.

9 How to get information from Core Banner Data? Reporting Tool Information

11 Is Banner Object:Access / ODS suitable for every end-user? To write reports you still need to know 100s of data elements and value rules but from only one applicant O:A / ODS views - instead of those 20+ tables End-users need to have fair knowledge of one of the desktop report writing tools (such as Microsoft Access, Crystal Reports, etc. )

12 How to make Object:Access / ODS suitable for every end-user? Make 100s of Object:Access data elements transparent to the end-user Eliminate the need for having expertise in a report writing tool
