Vision, Mission, and Responsibilities
Enterprise Analytics (EA) partners with business owners by providing: accurate data; powerful, easy to use, and highly available tools; institutional research; and insightful analysis for decision support.
We are successful when:
- EA provides integrated, authoritative and accurate information about administrative, research, educational, and clinical components of the enterprise.
- EA is engaged as a consulting partner for the lifecycle of data driven projects, decision support, and process improvement initiatives.
- EA is where people go to get impartial answers to difficult questions dependent on data and analysis.
- EA's tools and support are integrated into the daily work of our partners. (Ex: people would panic if QlikView was unavailable).
- EA works with the organization to define and then provide the measurement and analysis component of the Baldridge Performance Excellence Framework (Component 4: knowledge management portion provided with Organizational Improvement).
- EA share/publish our processes and methods. As a state institution, we provide transparency into our processes and data models in comparison with commercial counterparts. We aspire to advance the practice of business intelligence and analytics. Long term, we seek to partner with other key stakeholders in the state and region.
- EA is a fun and stimulating place to work. There are continual opportunities for professional development and new exciting projects that at their core serve the health mission of our institution (education, research, clinical, administrative support).
Enterprise Analytics (EA) is dedicated and committed to providing best-in-class information and analysis through data warehousing, business intelligence, and expert consultation; improving KUMC's decision making and operational efficiency/excellence. These include:
Data Management, Warehousing, and Aggregation
Implement tools and techniques for the efficient acquisition, organization, integration and secure storage of KUMC mission-critical data including financial, institutional, payroll, human resources, educational, research, and clinical data.

Organizational Metadata and Data Governance
A challenge to successfully querying and reporting on enterprisedata assets is to understand the data and the hidden business rules and policies that are used to create and store it. Enterprise Analytics looks for opportunities to organize and build suitable data models, provide data dictionaries, and other training and documentation so that KUMC leaders can best understand and leverage our data assets.
