Robert Morris is known as the financier of the American Revolution. Reports pertaining to admissions statistics, student demographics and institutional information were diverting IT staff time from strategic activities such as upgrading legacy software and developing new user interfaces for internal applications. Dell Consulting Services designed and helped the university implement a solution that enables self-service reporting by end users of the student information system. Now a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 data warehouse stores the information, SQL Server Integration Services extracts data from external data sources, and SQL Server Reporting Services and SQL Server Analysis Services provide the reporting and analytics engines. End users can create and access reports through Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.
