The UDW+ Program will gradually replace the existing UDW architecture, which currently supports NYU reporting, with a flexible and integrated architecture that is more intuitive to the business users for ad hoc reporting and analytics*.
* Financial reporting has transitioned from Brio to UDW+ as of October 31st, 2013. Brio is no longer accessible for Financial Standard Reports or Financial Ad Hoc Reports (with the exception of a few departments and individuals). Please login to UDW+ for all your Financial Reporting needs.
Each project under the UDW+ Program is being rolled-out in a staggered approach to ensure a smooth transition. The rollout plan for each school and division is customized in partnership with the school or division's reporting representatives. Beginning with Core Users who certified the data, then Beta Users who tested the data, to Super Users who have been selected from each school/division to become in-house experts in the reporting data, business processes and system use, to Department Users, and so on, until all of the reporting users have transitions to UDW+.
The first project under the UDW+ Program is Financial Reporting and Analytics. This projectl impacts the entire financial reporting community, consisting of approximately 2,500 users. Anyone who has used Brio for financial reporting must have transitioned to UDW+ as of October 31st, 2013.
Deans, Department Heads, Principal Investigators, Grant Administrators, Fiscal Officers, executive leadership, and many others collaborated to design a variety of Financial Dashboards and Reports tailored to meet the needs and requirements of groups throughout the university.
To address specifc needs of a school/division, advanced financial reporting users have the ability to create and share custom ad hoc reports. Ad hoc reports can be created with basic and complex analysis, adding graphs, formatting reports, as well as other advanced functions of the reporting tool.
The Departmental Metrics Dashboard profiles a department’s academic resources and activities for the department chair, the dean, and their support staff.
The academic units currently included are the Arts and Sciences science departments, the Courant Institute, Dentistry, Nursing, and within the Steinhardt School Applied Psychology and the Department of Food, Nutrition and Public Health. Two institutes closely associated with those departments are also included: the Institute for Human Development and Social Change and the Institute for Education and Social Policy. Although NYU Polytechnic and the School of Medicine are also among the Nine Points of Science they are not included in the initial dashboard because their data are not integrated.
The Departmental Metrics Dashboard is available to the chair of each included department, department staff authorized by the chair, the department’s dean and authorized dean’s office staff.
