Archived BI Portal Reports: My People Reports No Longer Available on BI Portal

The Business Intelligence Team in UW-IT archived 4 HR/Payroll reports. As a result, these reports are no longer available in the BI Portal or on the SSRS Server.

This change further reduces the amount of technical debt the team carries and enables us to focus on building and maintaining more valuable analytics tools.

Change Summary:

During Workday go-live, many reports were updated to source Workday data via the EDW. Now a year after go-live, these reports were getting little to no usage. Rather than continue to maintain these tools, we opted to archive them.

Before archiving the reports, we reached out to users in order to understand legacy report usage. We learned that some legacy reports continue to offer business value, and those reports are still available on the BI Portal.

See the bottom of this post for a full list of the reports that we archived.

Questions:

If you have any questions about this change, or if you think we inadvertently archived a report that you still need in order to do your work, please write us at help@uw.edu and put “BI Portal Archived Reports Question” in the subject line.
