Enterprise Data: Subject Area Map

The following diagram is a representation of enterprise data subject areas at the University of Minnesota. These data subject areas come from various enterprise applications and are targeted for inclusion in the Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW).

As members of Enterprise Data Management and Reporting (EDMR), the data subject area on the diagram were identified by representatives from each of the 5 central units/Pillars at the University:

  • Academic Support Resources
  • Office of Human Resources
  • Office VP of Research
  • University Finance
  • University Services

The diagram contains boxes referred to as Major Subject areas, which are groupings of one or more closely related data subject areas. The diagram provides the vision for EDW data available for creation of enterprise dashboards, as well as, creation of dashboards and queries by distributed units and departments.

  • The color and shape of the data subject areas represent the owning central unit/Pillar
  • The size of the shapes represents the number of data integrations (larger shape is more integrations)
  • The border of the shape represents the availability of the component
    • Solid border = available
    • Dashed border = in progress
  • Lines between major subject areas shows major data integrations between major subject area

This diagram is used by Enterprise Data Management and Reporting to facilitate discussions on current and future prioritization of EDW data subject area development by Office of Information Technology. There is more detailed information about subject area prioritization and development on the EDMR website.
