The Data and Analytics Reporting Ecosystem (DARE) project is an ongoing effort to implement a new cloud enterprise data warehouse and reporting environment that works in conjunction with Workday. DARE will allow for enhanced reporting, advanced analytics, and deeper data access.
Phase 1, which was completed in June 2022, saw the implementation of DARE and all the necessary technical components put in place for the foundational platform. This included the architecture, data ingestion design patterns, and security considerations working in close collaboration with UCF IT.
Phase 2 is currently underway and the goal is to refine the ingested data and transform it into a new, more flexible structure. To date, DARE currently houses complete historical data archives of numerous systems such as PeopleSoft HCM and Financials. Additional systems and data sources needed for crucial future university initiatives or projects are also being integrated into the DARE warehouse. Phase 2 is expected to be complete by the end of June 2023.
