ITS Division: Enterprise Applications

Service Area: Analytics

What services do you and your teammates provide to campus?

We provide strategic and operational reports and analysis for the EVPFA. Our developers stitch together data from different systems and our analysts surface the data to end users as Tableau reports. Our goal is to provide data that helps UK leaders make better decisions. 

What campus units do you collaborate with?

Relationship building and “connecting the dots” is an important part of our role. We collaborate with leadership from all EVPFA areas, ranging from the University Budget Office to Auxiliary Services, to prioritize analytics projects. We get feedback from College Tableau Super Users and Business Officers who help us develop reports that meet their day to day needs. We also rely on other Enterprise Application teams to connect to and understand systems data across the Institution.

What are your workplace values?

Collaboration and teamwork. At an institution as large as UK, it takes many partners working together to make things happen. As part of a team, I appreciate pro-active communication, a problem-solving spirit and a focus on the positive.

What is your favorite part of working in ITS and UK?

I loved being a student at UK and appreciate that now I can contribute to its broader mission, improving life in the Commonwealth. I also want to give a shout out to the Social Committee at 630 S. Broadway. They host events that make coming to work more fun!
