Data is more than numbers and facts. Behind data lies the stories of people who comprise the University of Tennessee, Knoxville community. Data Central tells those stories through dynamic dashboards, detailed reports, and data analysis to help understand tomorrow. These resources aid campus decision makers in serving the UTK community in the areas of academic planning, student retention and persistence, student engagement, and overall student success.

News and Highlights

On 11/21/2020, we upgraded our production SAS environment to the new SAS Viya architecture, the latest SAS framework for delivering data dashboards and analytics. The benefits of Viya behind the scenes are increased processing speed, data redundancy, and portable code. There are also enhanced analytics features and new chart types. In order to cause the least amount of disruption we have migrated the SAS Data dashboards to Viya without introducing a lot of change. You will see some differences in page layouts and fonts as presented in Viya but the Dashboards’ base functionality has not changed. You will, however, need to update any bookmarked links that you have saved with the new Viya links. We are excited to present the SAS Viya framework to you and to explore where we may be able to apply some of Viya’s new features going forward. If you have any questions about the Data Dashboards please direct them to Open this link to read more about the changes you can expect to see - Navigating SAS Viya dashboards.

The UT Knoxville Data Standards manual has been updated and is now available for download on the Data Policies page.
