IMPORTANT! ICA will be decommissioned in Spring 2024 as Microsoft Power BI is the recommended reporting tool for Imperial. If you currently use ICA, you will be contacted about the next steps of the process. ICT will provide resources and training to help you transition to Power BI. You can learn more about Power BI by visiting our Power BI web page. For further details of this project, please contact the Data and Analytics team. 

Imperial College Analytics (ICA) is a web-based Business Intelligence tool, presenting management information to you, as a member of Imperial College London staff, via interactive role-based dashboards. The tool includes data about students, research funding, research publications, procurement and outreach activities. External information is also available from HESA, research funders and the NSS survey.

Can I get access to Imperial College Analytics?

Access to ICA is given when a user needs to access dashboards within it as a part of their job role, or as part of the creation of a new set of reporting. For the latter, please see Business Analytics Services. Where dashboards are already available, approval is required from the dashboard owner (i.e. the person responsible for the underlying data).

You should complete the College Information Security Awareness Training before requesting access to a dashboard.  To find out more about dashboards, go to College Data and Statistics Catalogue.

To request access to an ICA dashboard, please click here and then search for the form named Request Access to ICA

We will seek approval from the relevant dashboard owner(s) and you will be contacted with the outcome. Guidance on how to use the dashboards is provided within the relevant dashboard.
