Confidential (SFO, CA)
Sr. Business Objects Consultant and Data Analyst Aug2009 to May2010

Confidential at Confidential came up with DW project and the overall approach that has been agreed for reporting is to divide the inventory of reports into subject areas (e.g. Enrollment, Provider, and etc.) and then to further sub-divide the reports between Internal and External. For the Internal reporting, the approach is to perform a data analysis to determine if there are additional data needs that are not already covered in the Business Objects Universes as defined by Edifecs. The universe with the additional identified data would provide the basis for authorized personnel to define and run reports using Business Objects. For External reports, individual detailed reporting specifications will be developed so that these reports can be built as part of the Channel EDI development.

The BI environment at Oakwood is currently tenancy centric, driven by the reporting needs so far. The apartment data in the Data warehouse is also derived largely based on tenancies; some of the critical information like property base rent is sourced from tenancy rather than apartment data.

The overall objective of the Inventory Management Project is to provide a reporting environment that combines the apartment and tenancy data seamlessly by maintaining data integrity…
