The ADE State Data Warehouse is built on the IBM® Business Intelligence (BI) software, Cognos® platform, and is used by
Arkansas to meet the state, cooperative, district and school-level data reporting needs. Cognos® provides business intelligence
data warehouses through its Educational Performance Management System (EPMS). The state data warehouse is updated
nine times per year through the statewide information system (SIS). In additional
to live and longitudinal reporting, IBM Cognos® is used to provide dashboards to educational stakeholders. Dashboards offer
feature-rich visualizations to allow users to “drill-up” and “drill-down” on pre-built reports to examine areas of academic
strength and weakness.
