Data Warehouse

Tags Faculty Staff

Pitt IT Analytics supports the University Data Warehouse. Pitt Data Engineers can work with you to create reusable, regularly refreshed data sets to support standard or ad hoc reports. These data sets may be delivered via the data warehouse, data lake, or as Tableau data sources.


About This Service

Key Benefits

  • Centralized data: The University Data Warehouse provides a centralized location for all of the University's data, making it easier to access and analyze.
  • Consistent data: The data warehouse ensures that all data is consistent and up-to-date, reducing the likelihood of errors and inconsistencies.
  • Improved data quality: The data warehouse can help improve the quality of data by eliminating duplicate data and identifying and correcting errors.
  • Faster reporting: With the data warehouse, reports can be generated faster and more efficiently, as the data is already centralized and pre-processed.
  • Customized reporting: The data warehouse allows for customized reporting, giving you the ability to access the data you need in the format you prefer. This can help you make more informed decisions based on the customized data.
