m-Fin is a set of CU management financial reports created in CU’s Cognos software. I use this blog to communicate about the m-Fin reports, covering topics such as
- revisions to the m-Fin reports,
- new reports under development,
- useful Cognos features that are not readily apparent,
- the thinking behind m-Fin design decisions, and
- ideas for new features.
A single university-wide reporting solution
One of the top priorities of the Office of University Controller (OUC) is to improve the usability and efficiency of the Cognos Reporting System in its delivery of financial information, and to thereby create a single university-wide reporting solution. m-Fin (pronounced as the letter M and the fin of a fish) stands for “management financial” and identifies Cognos content we have developed for this purpose.
