The purpose of the UWC BIRS project is to ensure that flexible reporting is possible throughout the UWC operational systems environment.

 

 

Client:
University of Western Cape

Project:
The purpose of the UWC BIRS project is to ensure that flexible reporting is possible throughout the UWC operational systems environment.

In order to do this the environment must deliver:

  • A UWC data warehouse. Initially this is a 'light' version of the LINK database modeled in such a way that it is suitable for reporting with acceptable performance.
  • A Business Metadata Layer. This layer will house the business logic of the various underlying systems and make flexible reporting a reality.
  • Standard Reports that provide insight into the student administration system.

The provided solution must as far as possible be built using software based on open source principles. As this is an adopted strategy of the university, this is a very important requirement. It is in this light that the UWC BIRS Technical Architecture document endeavours to report on findings and make recommendations in the regard to the best software solution.

Duration:
The architecture component of this solution was completed in 2 months.
