Hummingbird BI Query

BI/Query is Graphical User Interface (GUI) reporting tool. It is a windows-based, "point and click" application that provides an easy-to-use graphical gateway to the Clark University Banner database. It gives business users and decision makers a way to turn raw data into useful information.

Both executive button functionality as well as ad-hoc querying are available with this tool.

Each department should work with their Systems Analyst to articulate reporting needs. After departmental needs are determined, the Systems Analyst will develop a BI/Query "model" that will be your road map for ad-hoc and executive querying of the Banner database.

The document below is meant to be used in combination with a two-day introductory training session offered by the ITS Office of Administrative Information Systems (AIS). For more information on BI Query Training contact Becky Frieden.
