On March 14, 2018, MarTech Advisor featured an interview with UW-IT’s very own Pieter Visser, Solutions Architect in the Enterprise Information, Integration and Analytics (EIIA) unit.

Pieter shares experiences and reasons for choosing Neo4j technology and how it created better impact through a single, integrated, enterprise metadata catalog empowering Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) and Business Intelligence (BI) Platform users.

EDW Data has Moved

Tableau Project Owners are now able to self-manage who has access to your visualizations. Using free UW Active Directory (AD) Groups, you can assign people directly to the publisher, editor and viewer security roles within your Tableau projects.

  • Queries to the Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) will be faster and simpler
  • Users will have upgraded SQL databases with new SQL tools
  • A single server location for all EDW data eliminates the need for cross-server joins
  • Geographical redundancy of critical data provides business continuity and disaster preparedness

More information is available in the FAQ.

The EDW technology refresh is part of a wider effort to simplify infrastructure management for UW-IT, as all data and Web servers move into the UW NetID domain. These ongoing enhancements reflect UW-IT’s goal to provide access to excellent infrastructure for the University, as outlined in UW-IT’s 2014 Strategic Investment Plan.
