Division of Finance is excited to announce the upgrade of the State Data Warehouse to the latest version of Cognos. This upgrade does not impact those users accessing the State Data Warehouse using an ODBC connection (i.e., Microsoft Access or Microsoft Excel, etc.). Throughout the month of May you will continue to have access to the current State Data Warehouse FINET reports – reaching them as you normally due today. Additionally, during this transition month, you will also have access to all of the same reports within the newly upgraded Cognos system.
On Friday, May 3rd, we will provide you Access to the New Data Warehouse
UTAH FINANCE BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE!
The New System looks quite different from the current data warehouse. Please schedule time to review the training, prior to logging into the new system.
While the new Cognos has an updated look and the navigation to our reports has changed, (please see the information provided below for a link to our updated Cognos training), the content of the Cognos reports remains the same as the current data warehouse.
As a User, here are some things you should do before Friday …
