Banner Operational Data Store


Managers, department heads, and other knowledge workers across your campus have different data needs and different ways of understanding information. But all of them need access to accurate, consistent data to help them answer key questions about their programs and initiatives.  

The Banner® Operational Data Store provides a consistent view of institutional data for everyone across your campus.  Because it presents data using familiar business terms and definitions, departmental users can easily access the information they need to manage operational reporting, perform ad hoc queries, and make better decisions about their daily responsibilities.  

“With ODS, data is more timely and easily accessible to our users, and that fosters better and quicker decision making.”
Scott Bridges, Assistant Director of SIS, Southern Illinois University
