General Information

 

Falcon Info is a collection of data designed to support management data analysis and organization decision-making.  

Created as an enterprise data warehouse, Falcon Info is assembled with data extracted from multiple systems.  Being a consolidation point for transactional data from unrelated sources such as PeopleSoft Campus Solutions (CSS) and Financial Management (FMS), Falcon Info serves as a complement to the University’s transactional systems designed to support day-to-day operations.

With data in this central repository, university decision makers are enabled to retrieve and analyze large amounts of data at the desktop level in a format that supports forecasting and decision-making processes across the enterprise.
