Advancement Reporting & Systems

Submitted by Lee Barstow

Advancement Reporting & Systems provides systems and tools to support the intelligent extraction of reporting data.

These tools are gathered for users into a single interface called ARI (for Advancement Reporting Interface). ARI is available to all Advancement staff, and components of it are also shared as requested with other departments on campus.

Our work includes:

  • Design and maintenance of a MS-SQL data warehouse for reporting
  • Internal and external reports delivered via Excel, Access, browser, mobile, and other vehicles.
  • Self-service querying
  • Production applications including:
    • Direct mail (snail mail and email)
    • Stewardship
    • Event registration
