ABOUT THE WAREHOUSE

WOU’s Enterprise Data Warehouse began in July 2013 when the university’s CIO, Bill Kernan, asked then UCS Operating Systems/Security Analyist Richard Kavanagh to work with him and UCS Assistant Director Michael Ellis on a little project. Kavanagh agreed, so the trio sequestered themselves into the department’s only conference room for several months to develop the university’s first data warehouse. After they got the ball rolling, Ellis and Kernan were able to return to their regular duties and the team was expanded to include Nick Miller, Shea Hawes, and Max Chartier.

WOU’s Enterprise Data Warehouse was launched on June 2, 2014. The warehouse currently houses data from Banner Accounts Recievable, Admissions, Finance, HR/Payroll, Registration and General Student with more areas being added regularly.
