12/13/11: Continuing to work with consultants and internal staff to address ongoing issues. Current search to fill vacant position has failed, so other options are being evaluated. We are revewing options for improved ETL (Extract, Transfer, Load) systems and at packaged solutions that would help bring in more student data subject areas. It is likely the remainder of this project will be rolled into the Data Warehouse Report Enhancements project currently going through prioritization.
10/24/11: Consulting agreement has been signed and consultants engaged. We are now reviewing the overall student data map with the consultants. The search to fill the vacant position is ongoing.
9/27/11: Consulting agreement still pending approval and still searching to fill vacancy. Making incremental progress on bringing student data into the warehouse.
8/31/11: We need to fill a vacant position in the Enterprise Data Management group as part of this project and are actively recruiting for this position. In the meantime, a consulting agreement, currently in review, will enable us to get started.
