Data Fundamentals

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 Systems

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. 

Business Concepts

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. ​
