Heidi Plus is a business intelligence service for higher education institutions in the UK. It's a web based service which allows users to quickly access, extract and manipulate data for planning and reporting. It's a new interface for the legacy Heidi service and if you want continued access to the data, you'll need to request a Heidi Plus account, and have a HESA ID.
Heidi Plus uses the tableau web server. Data sources are uploaded and users can connect to these data sources to create their own workbooks. Workbooks allow a user to quickly create custom tables and graphs by dragging and dropping variables onto a worksheet.
Access will only be permitted where there is a legitimate business reason.
There are three levels of access:
Heidi Plus is linked to the HESA Identity service. Those with an existing HESA ID will be able to link their account to HEIDI Plus, whilst new users will have to register for a HESA ID.
Request a Heidi Plus account
All requests for access to Heidi Plus should be made to the Planning and Data Insight Team.
Mandatory data protection training
If you require gold level access please discuss your requirements with our Heidi Plus lead contacts Joff Hopkins and Mira Dragieva in the first instance. Please note that anyone who requires gold level access will need to complete a mandatory data protection webinar before access it granted. The webinar can be booked with HESA training. Please note that there is a charge for ‘attending’ the webinar.
