BIRST (My BI) decommissioning

Birst (My BI) will be decommissioned from 1st October 2018, therefore the dashboards will no longer be available from this point.

The Department for Education is committed to providing value for money and making use of the latest technology so that we can offer the most effective reporting tools and enhance the user experience.

As a result we are introducing more effective technology for the delivery of dashboards and data to key partners in quarter one of 2019.

Between the time of Birst being decommissioned from 1 October 2018, and the new technology being available, we will provide you with interim solutions for each of our products.

  • Qualification Achievement Rates – A replication of the current Dashboard in Excel with a comparable look and feel
  • Funding Rules Monitoring (FRM) – An Excel extract of all the FRM tables
  • Localism – A series of Excel tables with the data from the dashboard

We will be making these available using the current data already available in the existing dashboards.

This is to ensure the interim solutions will be available before Birst is decommissioned and there is no loss in service.

Your products will continue to be updated in alignment to the existing release schedule.
