The Presidents office alongside Research and Innovation Support and ISS have come together to create a series of reports and dashboards  based on student and research data. New reports and functionality are in the pipeline.

This data is available to authorised users at  dashboards  Currently only available over the DCU network, fixed or mobile.

Due to the nature of  the data,  access is strictly controlled and is granted by the Reporting Group Chair. Users are required to have completed DCU data protection courses before accessing the system.

Each report contains its own  unique FAQ and help guide to guide you through the report structure and explain the data you are viewing, all fully compatible with MS office and pdf download

The system is intuitive and requires a browser, URL and network password to access. Click HERE to see a video on how to use the system. Users can create their own individual customised dashboards as required using existing reports.

Dashboards work across all browsers and both windows and macintosh environments. All data is fed live from systems, however once displayed in manipulable (sorts, hide columns etc) by a user

As part of the roll out of DCU reporting dashboards, those staff with access to student or research dashboards as well as viewing them  over the internet can also view these on the move  on Iphone or Ipad, using the IPhone  mobile app  (search App store for Oracle business intelligence mobile).
