What is ADE State Data Warehouse?
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.
