Financial Data Warehouse Launched

The Finance data warehouse was officially launched on the University of Houston campus, March the 26th, 2009. The warehouse provides a gateway to financial data stored in a fashion conducive to high-level reporting, and features interactive, ad-hoc functionality, multiple year trending, graphing and dashboard display. Moreover, the data warehouse environment enables quick access to university financial data that is current, accurate, and consistent.

The first phase of the finance data warehouse features general ledger account balance reports, including HEAF fund equity balances, fund equity balance by fund group, and fund equity balances for state appropriations. In addition, asset, liability, equity, revenue and expenditure account information is available. The warehouse is updated nightly and contains data from 1998 to the present.

The data warehouse is designed to provide timely, relevant information that is readily available to campus leadership in a consistent and accurate manner.

Moreover, the warehouse will play a key role in the strategic planning and budgeting process by enabling trend and performance measure analysis, as well as forecast modeling. Such a resource will facilitate the assessment of our progress toward the goals, objectives and strategies set out by university leadership by allowing for frequent status checks on key indicators.

The data warehouse is web-based and has its own URL: data.uh.edu. For more information on gaining access to the data warehouse, please contact Barbara Duarte at Duarte@uh.edu or 34397.
