The first phase of the new OBIEE Data Warehouse build out project is scheduled to be completed and available within the OBIEE environment on April 4th. The scope of this project was to create a new combined subject area for Student Records, Financial Aid, Student Financials and Demographics Information. This new subject area is called Student Data Warehouse.
Over the past few months, Institutional Research staff, the Enterprise Systems BI Analysts and Enterprise Systems BI Tech Team have been working to join the necessary tables in a way that will be easiest for end users to utilize. Nearly all of the requested/ required tables for BI have been brought in to the OBIEE environment and validated for accuracy.
Enterprise Systems staff and campus stakeholders conducted data validation and testing on this new subject area. The feedback provided to the project team was used to make improvements.
With the release of the new Student Data Warehouse on Monday April 4th, current OBIEE Answer users will have access to both the existing Census subject area and this new Student Data Warehouse subject area. The current OBIEE dashboards, subject areas and reports will still be available. There is no immediate plan to change the remaining subject areas but we will be exploring how best to manage or sunset some of those subject areas.
End users are encouraged to explore this new subject area and convert any OBIEE report to utilize it accordingly.
To support this process, BI Users Group meetings have been set up to occur weekly on all Wednesdays during the month of April and May, in Math Annex #107 Training Lab and Online, 10:30 – Noon.
We will use this time to answer questions and help OBIEE Answers users to become familiar with the new subject area.
The regular myWSU: BI-Data Warehouse 11g Analytics Training (OBIEE) will continue monthly as scheduled. See Skillport link below.
