The UDW+ Program is gradually replacing the existing UDW architecture, which currently supports NYU reporting, with a flexible and integrated architecture that is more intuitive to the business users for ad hoc reporting and analytics. Currently, UDW+ stores major components of financial, student, HR, and research data. The UDW+ Program will continue to expand to include other areas.
UDW+ Roll-out Approach
Each project under the UDW+ Program is being rolled-out in a staggered approach to ensure a smooth transition. The rollout plan for each school and division is customized in partnership with the school or division's reporting representatives. Beginning with Core Users who certified the data, then Beta Users who design and tested the dashboard(s), to Super Users who are the in-house reporting experts within each school/division, to a customized larger rollout of all department users, and so on... until all of the reporting users have transitions to UDW+.

The UDW+ Student Reporting and Analytics initiative provides summary and detail information on academic records and enrollment information. It focuses on registration, courses, students, careers, programs, plans, degrees, grades, advisors, and study agreements.
While there is a broad user base of student data, the initial focus of the UDW+ Student project is on replacing the current Brio student records dashboard. We worked with the Student Advisory Group, and formed UDW+ Student Core and Beta groups that have guided the development of the UDW+ Student Academic Management Dashboard. These new UDW+ operational reports aim at supporting enrollment management, course enrollment information and advising in schools and departments.
The current Brio Student Records Reporting Dashboard is being gradually replaced with a more robust, interactive and graphic UDW+ Student Academic Management Dashboard. Anyone who currently uses the Brio Student Records Reporting Dashboard, or Brio student records ad hoc reporting, will need to complete the necessary UDW+ training to gain access to student data in UDW+.
