Data Cookbook

What is the Data Cookbook?

The Data Cookbook website is a new Data Governance tool that will help Boise State data producers and consumers view, use, capture, and develop data and reporting information that is consistent and accurate across the many reporting outlets housed on the campus.

More than a data dictionary, the Data Cookbook has a number of features that can be valuable to reporting efforts of the different functional areas at Boise State.

  • Data terms and definitions
  • Report specifications
  • Workflow
  • Community collaboration

To learn about these features in-depth, please see the posted pre-recorded videos available on iData’s web site.
