New Data Dictionary tool provides clarity on frequently used reports in Business Warehouse

As champions of data governance, we all play a role in overseeing the quality, integrity, control and distribution of important NKU information. The Data Governance Committee is pleased to announce a new online tool, the Data Dictionary/Report Repository, to assist comprehension of the information contained in our business warehouse. This easy-to-use resource explains frequently used reports, provides definitions of fields and includes specialized documentation. This tool is a step towards improving how we, as a university, manage data.
