Strategic Planning & Analytics utilise data from a warehouse which continuously collects and integrates data from a number of different University IT systems in conjunction with IBM Cognos to provide consistent and timely reporting on a range of activities.

******* For more details please see *******
Please note that IBM Cognos Analytics has created some issues for users running report links for specific Windows PC browsers.
Many managed Windows PCs will now default to Microsoft Edge but it's incompatible with Cognos so please use Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox (in order or compatibility).
PC users can either:
1) Change your default browser following the quick steps on the Microsoft website if you don't have Chrome or Firefox installed.
2) Create a shortcut to Internet Explorer on your Windows Desktop or Taskbar using these options on the Microsoft support site.
