EDW Customer Survey: The Results Are In

January 21, 2021

If you participated in the EDW’s Customer Survey, thank you! Understanding how you use the EDW helps us improve our services and enhances our ability to support you now and in the future.

Over One Million
You queried the EDW over one million times from August 2019 to August 2020.

By Popular Demand
By far, the type of data you want most is Finance (75%), HR/Payroll (62%) and Academic (54%). Among the variety of databases that you access, the top three are ODS, UWSDBData, and FinancialSumMart.

Roles and Responsibilities
At least half of you have multiple roles in your department and we know you have added responsibilities as a result. Data accessibility is vital to your work. Half of you access the EDW for data every day. With 36 distinct organizations accessing the EDW, the data you need is varied and unique to the work you need to do.

Finance Transformation
Finance Transformation and what it means for your work is top of mind for you. Many of you are keeping up to date on the changes to data that you access daily. And you’re aware that the way you work may need to change in the future.
