The UT System Business Intelligence (BI) team facilitates the use of information across the entire System for improved decision making. We provide the only place that brings data together from multiple information systems and multiple campuses to deliver a “single version of the truth” for any University of Tennessee constituent.
BI provides an array of services to system offices which can be found at bi.tennessee.edu/catalog.
All data is stored in the UT System’s Consolidated Data Repository.
Frequently Asked Questions
What services can BI provide to campuses?
While we encourage you to first check with your local campus IT departments to see what campus BI resources may be available, we do provide our entire catalog of services to UT constituents at all campuses and institutes.
Is there any cost to my department to use the BI platform?
In general, there is no cost; however, report authors who need to share their work require a Power Business Intelligence Pro license; as of June 2020, the cost for this license is less than $25/per person per year.
Can I import data from the BI platform into an unsupported tool?
Yes – with approval. However, we will not provide support should issues arise.
Can I bring additional data into the BI platform?
Yes – with approval. Generally the data needs to be for official university business and beneficial to multiple departments or groups.
