Data Fundamentals is a central place to learn about key university concepts that are used every day in the running of W&M. You will find short content and videos to address business and data fluency and on-going data education.
W&M uses Banner Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software to manage core day-to-day business activities (Human Resources, Finance, Financial Aid, Student, Self-service) along with a complement of 100+ additional systems.
It is critical that the W&M community share a common business language to ensure consistent use and interpretation of information for running operations and general data driven decision making.
What are the major business activities at W&M?
The W&M Activity Model is a diagram that represents the dynamic aspects of W&M work performed by hundreds of offices. It is a framework that is used to simplify W&M’s organizational complexities and provide a way to categorize information. The ENABLING ACTIVITIES support the CORE ACTIVITIES of Teaching, Research and Service with our Students, Faculty and Community. The Data Fundamental content will be organized based on the W&M Activity Model.
Qlik Sense & Finance is a series of courses designed to combine Qlik Sense navigation with financial data and concepts at the university. The 100-level courses are introductory and ideal for new employees or those seeking a refresher or reference guide. Future courses will build upon those concepts.
Additional activities will be expanded over time.
