Informer 5.9 – Public Reports

Have you ever considered how to securely share your data insights with the world without compromising the integrity of your Informer instance? Informer addresses the need for organizations to share valuable Dashboards, Comparison Boards, or Data Views with external stakeholders. The ability to securely make Reports publicly accessible is essential. This feature allows organizations to leverage their data in new ways, enhancing transparency and engagement with their audience while safeguarding their core data system.

We will explore the innovative solution that Informer offers through Public Reports and how organizations can seamlessly integrate reports into the cloud, making them accessible to the public without exposing their Informer instance. This approach ensures the security of user data and opens new avenues for data-driven communication and decision-making.

Understanding Public Reports

A Public Report, in the context of Informer, is a Dataset-backed Report (e.g., a Dashboard, a Comparison Board, or a Data View) that is shared outside of Informer's firewall, making it accessible to users who do not have direct access to the Informer.

This sharing mechanism is facilitated by a Cloud Publish Key, essentially an API token. This token serves as a unique identifier used for authentication and authorization when interacting with the Informer API. It acts as a secure key that enables the destination Informer to request and receive data from the originating Informer's system without compromising security.

Historically, Informer could generate external links to Reports, but these links contained the URL of the User’s Informer and required the Report to remain connected to the Dataset that backed it. Public Reports allow Users to publish a Report to a cloud deployment of Informer, obfuscating their Informer’s URL and disconnecting the Report from its backing Dataset.

How Public Reports Work

A Public Report is a conversation between two Informer deployments: the origin and the destination. The origin Informer is where the Report and its backing data reside. The destination is the cloud deployment of Informer where the Public Report is published. A User generates a special kind of API key on the destination deployment called a “Cloud Publish Key” that allows a Public Report to be published to it.

The process of publishing a Public Report involves detaching the data from its original Datasource and packaging it for independent use. Specifically, the data, comprising the Elasticsearch index and Dataset metadata, is encapsulated in a manner that allows for its utilization by the Public Report. The Report operates independently of the data's connection status to the Datasource, meaning it does not require an active link to the Datasource for it to function.

Once the Report is published to the destination, it functions the same as any other Report. It follows the same data security and configurations as the original Report as the User created it on the origin Informer deployment. However, because the data is no longer dynamically linked to its source Dataset, it cannot be refreshed directly from the destination Informer.

In conclusion, Public Reports represent a significant advancement in data sharing and transparency. By enabling organizations to securely share Dashboard, Comparison Boards, or Data Views with external stakeholders, Informer addresses the critical need for both accessibility and data integrity. Public Reports ensure that sensitive data remains protected while making valuable insights accessible to a broader audience. This not only enhances organizational transparency and engagement but also paves the way for new opportunities in data-driven decision-making. As organizations continue to leverage this capability, the potential for impactful communication and collaboration with external stakeholders is boundless. Informer's commitment to security and ease of use in this feature underscores its role as an essential tool in the modern data ecosystem.

Leveraging Dashboards for Enhanced Decision-Making in Higher Education

Leveraging Dashboards for Enhanced Decision-Making in Higher Education

In today's fast-paced higher education landscape, staying ahead requires more than just traditional approaches to data management. Dashboards have emerged as a powerful tool for IT professionals in higher education, offering a myriad of benefits that drive institutional effectiveness and student success. Let's delve into the key advantages of incorporating dashboards into your institution's strategy:

Data Visualization: Dashboards provide a visually intuitive representation of complex data sets, empowering administrators, faculty, and staff to grasp trends and patterns at a glance. This visual clarity enables informed decision-making and facilitates data-driven strategies.

Performance Monitoring: By tracking key performance indicators (KPIs) such as enrollment rates, graduation rates, and student retention, dashboards offer real-time insights into institutional performance. Identifying areas for improvement becomes seamless, allowing for proactive adjustments to enhance overall effectiveness.

Real-Time Information: With dashboards, stakeholders gain access to up-to-date information on student enrollment, admissions, financial aid, and more. This real-time visibility enables swift responses to emerging issues, fostering agility and adaptability within the institution.

Enhanced Collaboration: Dashboards serve as a centralized platform for sharing data across departments, promoting collaboration and communication among different stakeholders. This collaborative environment fosters synergy, leading to more cohesive decision-making and coordinated efforts.

Improved Student Success: By monitoring students' progress and identifying at-risk individuals, dashboards facilitate targeted interventions to support student success. Whether it's academic assistance or personalized guidance, institutions can proactively address challenges and promote student retention.

Resource Allocation: Dashboards offer insights into resource utilization, empowering institutions to optimize the allocation of financial and human resources. This ensures efficient resource management, ultimately enhancing the student experience and institutional effectiveness.

Compliance and Accountability: Dashboards play a crucial role in tracking compliance with regulations and accreditation standards, providing evidence of adherence when needed. This ensures accountability and instills confidence in stakeholders regarding institutional integrity.

In conclusion, dashboards are indispensable tools for IT professionals in higher education, driving informed decision-making, institutional effectiveness, and student success. Embracing this technology equips institutions with the agility and insight needed to navigate the complexities of modern academia successfully.
