The presentation offered information on how a UTSA data warehouse could be established. A "data warehouse" is defined as a copy of stored data structured for querying, reporting and analysis. Data warehouses often focus on a specific activity or entity and can be used at all levels of an organization to monitor operational activities.
The speakers at the information session were Gerry Dizinno, UTSA director of institutional research, and data warehousing consultant Susan Nies.
Nies earned a B.S. degree in computer science and an M.B.A. from UTSA. She has 15 years of experience in all aspects of business intelligence systems including needs assessment, implementation, roll-out and training. She has data warehousing experience in higher education and the marketing and petro-chemical industries. Additionally, she was primary consultant for a recent St. Mary's University data warehouse project and has lectured at numerous higher education technology and institutional research conferences.
