End User Access Requests to Run Reports or Perform Ad hoc Queries

There are many pre-built reports that provide access to data in the Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW).  For a list and description of the reports available please refer to the Decision Support Services web site. 

Users needing to perform ad hoc queries against central data in the Enterprise Data Warehouse must be knowledgeable about the potential impact their queries may have on other users and applications that access the same data.  Users doing ad hoc queries should be experienced in SQL programming and use appropriate query tools and techniques, as documented on the Query Data page of the Decision Support Services Web site.  This includes querying data through the secured views provided in the EDW.     

To request end user access to run these reports or query data please review the instructions below and fill out the request form.
