The Decision Support Web site provides a single point of access to
information for users and
developers of Enterprise Data
Warehouse (EDW) data and tools. It
addresses questions about access, database connections, report writing and deployment, query writing,
available data, and more. Here you will find answers, with self-service access to a centralized set
of data and tools, standards and best practices, to help ensure consistent
use of institutional data
across multiple functional areas and units.
EDW Data is Moving
In August, 2014, the Enterprise Data Warehouse data and cubes are moving onto more powerful hardware and updated software, and relocating to the NetID domain. This move to the new hardware and Microsoft SQL Server 2012 platform means:
Queries to the Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) will be faster and simpler
Users will have upgraded SQL databases with new SQL tools
A single server location for all EDW data eliminates the need for cross-server joins
Geographical redundancy of critical data provides business continuity and disaster preparedness
The EDW technology refresh is part of a wider effort to simplify infrastructure management for UW-IT, as all data and Web servers move into the UW NetID domain. These ongoing enhancements reflect UW-IT’s goal to provide access to excellent infrastructure for the University, as outlined in UW-IT’s 2014 Strategic Investment Plan.
Tableau Data Visualization
Tableau Software is the data visualization platform chosen for use with UW Enterprise Data Warehouse data, following a multi-month pilot in partnership with 20 academic and administrative units. Tableau is used to visualize large data sets and helps simplify their meaning, promote understanding of those data sets, and communicate important concepts and ideas. Valuable information is stored in the University of Washington's growing data repositories and data visualization software is used to clearly convey that information using images, providing opportunities for understanding that data and for data-informed decision-making.
The Office of Planning and Budgeting and UW Information Technology's Enterprise Data & Analytics worked together to create UW Profiles. Powered by Tableau data visualization software, UW Profiles is a suite of institutional dashboards which provide a dynamic way to easily access, explore and understand basic University data. Access the UW Profiles dashboards through the UW Profiles Portal, the searchable, personalized catalog of dashboards offerings and documentation.
