Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW)

The EDW serves as the central datastore for systems of record. The EDW is the enterprise repository for historical, trend, and cross-functional institutional data that is used for reporting and analysis.

The EDW represents only a subset of “all” data that may exist at the university. Data are loaded into the EDW on a priority basis, taking into consideration mission-critical, legal, and regulatory uses of information, major institutional initiatives requiring data, and breadth of use of the data.

Looking forward, the modernized EDW will relocate to the cloud in order to improve university outcomes and increase capabilities for data-driven decisions. The cloud-based EDW provides new capabilities for UT data analysts and also continues the onging effort to model critical institutional data.
