ITS offers, as a service, centralized databases that are secure, stable, and professionally managed. We develop and support datamarts such as the Student Administration Datamart (SADM), the Kuali Financial Datamart (KFDM), and the much anticipated Human Resource/Payroll Datamart (HRPYDM). We administer and support the WebFOCUS reporting platform while extending those services into the areas of descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics. Furthermore, the Data Science and Artificial Intelligence group takes advantage of machine learning techniques and cognitive capabilities (via cloud based Artificial Intelligence) to create innovative solutions. Additional information can be found on Our Services page.
As mentioned in recent communications, we’ve adopted an update strategy that will provide new, improved functionality to the WebFOCUS Community more frequently. A detailed explanation of this strategy is available here. Also mentioned was the desire to involve as many of you, as possible, to assure that your core reporting functionality is not interrupted by the WebFOCUS update.
Currently, ITS is applying the update, preparing the environment and testing base functionality in UAT (testing environment), and we have invited the User Community to perform User Acceptance Testing beginning March 22nd. As usual, we have scheduled sessions where the User Community can work with our team. The Virtual WebFOCUS UAT sessions will take place between March 22 and April 7. The virtual sessions are designed to support you while you complete your testing, to share testing tips, and simply, to answer any WebFOCUS testing questions you may have. These are open sessions and you are welcome to come and go as your schedule permits. As always, if you need assistance outside of our sessions, please submit a Jira request.
