Service Catalog

The primary method of a BICC/BI Community adoption is through the offering of services. If a service is offered, it then fosters the adoption of the Campus standards and utilization of the standard BI framework and toolsets. This results in overtime in the reduction of rogue data and reporting systems throughout campus and an overall reduction in IT expenditures.

Submit a Data Management & Analytics Request Form for any service requests.
