It has been agreed with IS Apps PMO that project EST093 will be transferred to a new code EST109.
The project was initiated in March 2016, and the brief for the project has been substantially revised, following on from work being done with the enabling EDW programme, and the installation of the new Estates Helpdesk. It is felt that is would be better to transfer the outstanding deliverables and budget to a new project.
This completion report is therefore fairly skeletal by design, and has been created solely to comply with the governance required to migrate project.
Thanks to IS Apps PMO in assisting with this.
This project is concerned with the provision of a strategic reporting capability for the Estates Dept, to include the actual delivery of an agreed set of strategic reports.
In order to achieve a strategic reporting capability, we need to create a number of pre-requisite, foundation building blocks that come together to form the Estates Data Warehouse (ESDW). Further explanation is provided in the approach section.
The formation of ESDW will not only serve the requirements of this project, but act as a key enabler for all future Estates Management Information, Business Intelligence and strategic reporting projects.

The design and creation of a fuller Estates Data Warehouse Subject area (ESSA) We should take the opportunity to create the best ESSA building block that we can, as a clear enabler for future Estates MI/BI projects. This will save time and effort tin the long term
The provision of various ETL (extract-transform-load) processes that can populate ESSA with appropriate operational data.
As a minimum this must encompass the data requirements for Phase 1.
D07 -> D10
|S9||The establishment of a set of guiding principles and processes (namely the above) that provide a clear foundation and template for utilisation by all subsequent Estates BI / MI / Strategic reporting projects.||Should||Removed||
Not delivered. Now part of wider EDW programme.
The successful combination of Estates data with data from other subject areas, for example Finance. A key driver behind Estates strategic reporting is the ability to combine data from across the University.
