What is Data Warehouse?
The Enterprise Data Warehouse is a collection of databases and structures designed to simplify retrieving data for reporting. For the COMPASS project, the Enterprise Data Warehouse will contain data from the Human Resources, Finance, and Student PeopleSoft systems, and the Hyperion system. This will enable report developers to use any or all of these sources for strategic, tactical, and operational reporting. Report developers using the Enterprise Data Warehouse will use IBM Cognos as the primary reporting tool.
Gradually, the reports available through PeopleSoft Financial Reports in Web Applications will be replaced with reports from the Data Warehouse and Hyperion.
