OBI

Oracle Business Intelligence (OBI) is a web-based reporting system used to support the campus community’s academic and administrative offices.

 

OBI and Funds Available View

Both OBI Financial Reports and Funds Available View (FAV) are reporting tools that utilize Ohio University's general ledger data. 

  • Funds Available View contains live data while the OBI Published Financial Reports contain data as of all jobs processed the night before. 
  • Funds Available View contains subledger detail (e.g. journal entries) while OBI currently does not. 
  • Funds Available View contains data from 2003-current while OBI only contains 5 years of data.
