Enterprise Information Stewardship

Enterprise Information Stewardship (EIS) reports to MSU IT and the Office of Planning and Budgets. EIS is comprised of Data Warehouse/Data Integration, Business Intelligence (BI) and Analytics, Data Stewardship and Data Solutions teams.

EIS plans and organizes activities for MSU’s vision of data managed as an asset and data-driven decision-making. The team also improves links between databases and data stores to make information/data easier to find online and make it easier for analysts and policy makers to quickly access and transform data into the new formats. EIS also evaluates usage of emerging technologies and implements those solutions to give academic and administrative units the capabilities they need to succeed in measuring new analytics.
