An Overview of Data in SIRIS

Main content start


This page includes a high-level overview of the data we have in SIRIS and our subject areas. This is not an all-inclusive guide – we recommend exploring each subject area adhoc space on your own, and reaching out to our team for a training session or “tour” of SIRIS!

The SIRIS Data Ecosystem

The visual below summarizes what data areas each subject area falls into. As you can see, many subject areas combine data from multiple sources – for example, the Student Class Enrollment subject area joins student, course/class, and academic organization data.

What is a Subject Area? 

In SIRIS, a Subject Area is a specific topic of data that has been designed and curated. For example, the Student Advising Subject Area contains data about students’ advisors, including relevant information about the students and advisors themselves. Subject Areas can be queried by creating an adhoc report in OBIEE; the SIRIS team uses these subject areas to create the reports and dashboards accessed by our Dashboard and Aggregate users. Below is a list of all the subject areas in SIRIS and a short description:
