Data Cookbook

A key component of data governance is an enterprise source of data definitions, standard reports and dashboards. Designed for higher education, Data Cookbook software is this enterprise source for Purdue. It allows the institution to discuss, agree upon, document and share definitions and report specs. Having a well-documented data dictionary and catalog of official, standard reports allows for the efficient use of the abundance of institutional data.

Casual users are able to search using everyday language. The report and dashboard catalog provides the business purpose, fields contained, owner and sources. This will allow the determination of the appropriate report or dashboard to meet the user’s need.

The new workflow feature will streamline requests for additional standard reports and provide governance around that process. If a new report is needed or a change to a current one, the request is transparent to the community.

Additional functionality is coming with an upgrade.
