Information Management

Information Management provides University-wide leadership in the development and management of UW’s major administrative business systems, including Finance, Human Resources/Payroll, Advancement and Facilities. This division is also responsible for the UW Enterprise Data Warehouse and business intelligence tools that provide information for decision making.

The UW is moving forward with a strategy to replace and upgrade its aging administrative business systems, beginning with HR/Payroll Modernization. Information Management is partnering with Finance & Facilities on this initiative, while continuing to provide support for the current payroll system.

This division is responsible for:

  • Enterprise Administrative Applications: Supports the HR/Payroll Modernization initiative, including modifications to enterprise financial and student administrative systems and the Enterprise Data Warehouse, as well as development of enterprise integration capabilities aligned with the Enterprise Information Management initiative; provides support for the UW’s HR/Payroll and Finance administrative systems.
  • Enterprise Document Management: Supports institutional goals by working toward making paperless business flows the norm at the University, reducing our impact on the environment while better supporting increased efficiency and cross-department collaboration on critical content. The new technology and capabilities will enable secure access to business documents and improve compliance with record retention policies, while reducing the risk of unauthorized access to confidential information.
  • Enterprise Information, Integration & Analytics: Provides leadership and support to UW academic and administrative units in delivering institutional data for decision making; manages the Enterprise Data Warehouse, business intelligence systems and tools and data management solutions; provides training.
  • HR/P Intersections: Ensures that the UW’s new HR/Payroll system integrates smoothly into the UW enterprise.
