m-Fin Reports in CU-Data (Cognos)
Creating a single, efficient reporting solution for financial management
The Office of University Controller (OUC) has been charged with developing the Cognos Reporting System as the single reporting solution for the University of Colorado. Through Cognos, we offer on-demand reports to suit common departmental financial management needs. We also provide training, documentation, and support to facilitate knowledgeable use of the Cognos Reporting System. We consult with campus controller staff and campus users to ensure that Cognos reports are developed to serve their financial data needs.
m-Fin Reports are financial reports created in CU’s Cognos software and accessed through the CU-Data system in the portal
The University of Colorado has other Cognos content. We therefore use the m-Fin brand to distinguish the on-demand reports developed for this initiative. m-Fin stands for management financial. m-Fin reports are: Cognos technology; for internal CU use; drawn on financial data from CU's Central Information Warehouse (CIW); tuned for performance with reasonable run times; developed with input from CU administrative financial data users; and, published and maintained by CU's Office of University Controller (OUC).
m-Fin Reports Team
In the OUC, Carl Sorenson and Sarju Khadka work with campus users for input on development of m-Fin reports. They also collaborate with University Information Systems (UIS) and Information Research Management (IRM) on development of the Cognos data model, enhancement of CIW database infrastructure, and Cognos software support. Carl and Sarju are joined by other members of the OUC staff in testing, training, and supporting use of the m-Fin reports.
