Reporting & Analytics

USF faculty and staff have access to a versatile and robust reporting platform to make informed business decisions. Reporting from USF’s Administrative Systems (Banner) requires significant technical expertise and training.  Reporting duties are shared among ITS programming staff and reporting experts in functional areas, including Enrollment Management, Advancement, Business and Finance, and Institutional Research. ITS provides technical support and system administration for the WebFOCUS business intelligence platform and the ePrint reports repository.
