Folio Reporting Development ReportPeter Murray

-Peter Murray to discuss his Report on Business Intelligence consultant conversation on Folio Reporting Development

  • good to have cross-sig reporting meeting
  • data model not ready enough
  • reporting needs to be included early in planning

Peter met with Christina Raus (sic?). She works for a company that consults on data warehouse design. She is currently working on designing a data warehouse for several Connecticut educational institutions and also has worked with Flyway. She estimates that only 5% of reporting requires real time access and we should identify those cases. The remaining 95% can be handled by a daily feed. She offered a cost estimate of several million dollars to implement a full real time data warehouse. She will work on a webinar of 1-1.5 hours on this topic. Peter and Sharon will work with her to schedule the webinar.

Q: What basic structure is envisioned by her?

A: Star schema

Q: Joanne expressed concern about not having access to everything in real time

A: Design system around the 5% that is needed during real time.

Need to make sure frequency is noted in the report spreadsheet and indicate whether reports are real time or not.

Q: How do we ensure referential integrity? (need to make sure that pointers across domains are accurate)
