Admin IT Newsletter – Tableau-as-a-Service and Year-End Review

In this edition of the ASMP 2.0 Admin IT Newsletter, as 2015 draws to a close, we want to draw your attention to an important initiative, Tableau-as-a-Service:

“Tableau-as-a-Service”- Coming Soon!

“Tableau-as-a-Service” is an important component of the Administrative Systems Modernization Program’s (ASMP 2.0) drive toward delivering Data-as-a-Service to campus. Tableau servers are in place and available for hosting visualizations now.  Although volume price negotiations are still in progress, we expect to have desktop licenses available for use by authorized Colleges, Schools, and Units (CSUs) in late January 2016. Read more on the Admin IT wiki blog.

In Case You Missed It: Below is a digest of the most important Admin IT articles of the Fall 2015 semester.

  • Tools for Understanding the New Workday Financial Data Model (FDM)
  • Updates on the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) after 10/28 FYI
  • MyUT Portal Strategy
  • New-Transcription of FYI Presentations

Tools for Understanding the New Workday Financial Data Model (FDM)

The FDM is a foundational element of Workday that will replace our current Chart of Accounts. The FDM describes how funds for reporting and operational use are structured in Workday. We encourage you to learn as much as possible about how the FDM works in order to effectively transition systems, forms, and processes for your unit.

ASMP 2.0 has created several new tools to support you in this endeavor:

  • A new presentation providing an FDM Overview
  • Slide deck from this presentation
  • FDM Quick Reference Guide offering a sample DEFINE to Workday crosswalk

Updates on the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) after 10/28 FYI

On Oct. 28, the ASMP 2.0 delivered an FYI presentation titled, “Introduction to the ESB and Integration Services”.  Many community members were able to attend the Technical Q&A Session that followed where developers were invited to bring their top questions for discussion. Based on this interactive dialogue, ASMP 2.0 has assembled an overview of the top three areas of interest: training, security, and business rules for using the ESB.  To read more about these topics, and how your College, School or Unit (CSU) can most effectively take advantage of the ESB tool, visit “Updates on the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) after 10/28 FYI.”

MyUT Portal Strategy

The new MyUT University Portal is currently under development. The Executive Summary on the ASMP 2.0 website provides a look at how this new tool can support students, faculty, and staff.

New-Transcription of FYI Presentations

ASMP 2.0 is now offering transcriptions of previous ASMP 2.0 related FYI topics, including the recent “ASMP 2.0 Integrations Update”. These transcriptions are being developed by request from the technical community as a resource to support greater understanding of the many aspects of the program. Check back often, as we continually update the site with new transcriptions.
