Rensselaer Data Warehouse Project

Winner of the 2006 Computerworld “Best Practices in Business Intelligence” award in the “Creating a Strategic Vision and Using BI for ROI through IT Leadership” category.

IDG’s InfoWorld Names Rensselaer’s Data Warehouse Among the 100 Most Innovative Corporate IT Solutions for 2006


Led by Cabinet-level sponsorship, the Rensselaer Data Warehouse Project responds to President Jackson's vision of centralized information systems and improved decision support throughout the Institute.

The fundamental goal of the Rensselaer Data Warehouse Project is to integrate administrative data into a consistent information resource that supports planning, forecasting, and decision-making processes at Rensselaer.

To achieve this goal, the Data Warehouse Group within the Integrated Administrative Computing Services (IACS) department is serving as the primary implementation team, working with implementation groups that are composed of members of the Rensselaer community.

"Rensselaer employs a first-rate information culture and a robust information infrastructure. We must sustain this advantage....We will centralize administrative information systems, while improving distributed decision support throughout the Institute."

--- Shirley Ann Jackson, PhD, President, Rensselaer
