Rensselaer Data Warehouse Project

analysis interviews

DecisionWorks consultants visited Rensselaer for a 10-day period from September 10th to September 19th, 2001. During this analysis period, 31 interviews occurred with 49 individuals representing a wide variety of portfolios across Rensselaer, as well as a diverse vertical span of the Institute.

Interviews focused on the vision, goals, performance plan objectives, and supporting information and analysis requirements of the participants.

Following the interviews, the findings were consolidated and data warehouse opportunities identified. These opportunities were presented on October 3rd, 2001 at a combined meeting of the data warehouse Sponsorship Committee and Steering Committee.

The purpose of this combined session was to review the requirements as documented by DecisionWorks Consulting and begin the prioritization process of the initial phases of the Rensselaer Data Warehouse Project.

For more information, refer to the DecisionWorks Findings document, written and provided by DecisionWorks Consulting.
