Help Labs

OSU Data Warehouse Help Labs allow you work with staff to use BI Query and any of the OSU Data Warehouse models to answer questions specific to your office and job. We are here to help you get the answers that you need.

  • Open to faculty and staff that have completed Data Warehouse Training.
  • The Data Warehouse Help Lab is typically held once a month in room 5420 of the Valley Library (aka the Barnard Classroom). The date is published with a message to the OSU Data Warehouse mailing lists.
  • Carla Simonson and Joy Bautz will be there to answer questions about the SIS Data Warehouse. Patty Ross will be there to answer questions about the FIS and HRIS Data Warehouses.

If you want to attend, but need help with an OUS model, please contact the primary and secondary contacts for your model to make special arrangements.
