The Decision SupportProject has been designed to modernize the data ecosystem at UMD and the accompanying centrally deployed and supported tools used for reporting and data extraction. Maryland’s ecosystem was developed more than 15 years ago and must now be replaced. In some cases, the replacement is necessary because the existing tools are no longer supported by the vendors (e.g., Profiles and Hyperion). In other cases, the replacement is necessary because the architecture has become unwieldy and brittle (e.g., Data Warehouse, reporting tools).
These pages will continue to evolve to support the community and the project. We ask that you contact team members as you find areas for improvement and contribute resources where you see a need. Use the link above to view the public site for general project information and updates.
Project Stream: Executive Reporting — This project stream is working to replace the IRPA Profiles site as well as other "executive reports" that allow users to access information with little knowledge of the data warehouse or querying tools.
Project Stream: Data Documentation — This project stream is responsible for documenting the data contained in our systems and the warehouse is the foundational cornerstone of the Decision Support effort.
Project Stream: Data Modernization — This project stream will re-design the University Data Warehouse architecture to match modern data warehouse standards; facilitate ease of reporting, data analytics, and business intelligence; and lay a foundation for future data and system projects at the University.
Support Topic: VPN & MFA — The Central Authentication System (CAS), Virtual Private Network (VPN) and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) systems are important tools that allow you to access University resources in a secure manner. Depending on the resource you are trying to access, you may be required to utilize one or more of these systems.
Support Topic: Google Groups — Google Groups is one tool used to facilitate discussion between various communities involved with the Decision Support project, along with other projects and initiatives.
