The benefits of using Knowledge Navigator (KN), the graphical metadata repository created in response to changes to data definitions driven by the HR/P Modernization program, are explained by Pieter Visser in a new blog post. The article appears on the website of the Neo Technology company, maker of the Neo4j database adopted for use by UW-IT for KN.
The UW Profiles Portal, the single access point to a set of Web-based dashboards featuring core UW data, has received the business intelligence industry’s most prestigious honor—The Data Warehousing Institute (TDWI) Best Practices Award. The international award recognizes excellence and innovation in developing business intelligence, data warehousing and related data management applications. UW Profiles Portal provides a dynamic way to access, explore and understand core UW data through 21 summary and comparison visual dashboards, as well as a searchable catalog and robust documentation.
Campus Technology Innovators also bestowed honors on the UW Profiles Portal and Dashboards, citing “the University of Washington developed an intuitive, user-friendly portal that provides a single point of access to data and visualizations for faculty and staff.”
