The Georgia Tech Data Warehouse evolved from the growing competitive need to quickly analyze business information. The existing institutional systems were not set up to optimize data retrieval and the process was difficult, tedious, and subject to a variety of errors. Existing operational systems cannot meet this need because:
- Lack of historical data in some operational systems.
- Data required for analysis resides in different operational systems
- Complexity of quering date sensitive elements in our operational systems.
The Georgia Tech data warehouse eliminates these problems by storing the current and historical data from disparate operational systems that business decision makers need in a single, consolidated system. This makes data readily accessible to the people who need it without interrupting on-line operational workloads. Institute data stored in a user-friendly format for faculty and staff to use in ad hoc reports, ancillary system development, and data feeds to other campus systems.
