Denodo, the leader in data virtualization, today announced that Indiana University has implemented Denodo Platform to create a logical data warehouse for their Decision Support Initiative (DSI), a multi-year project for improved strategic decision making across all levels throughout the University. By delivering a logical data warehouse in less than half the time required by a traditional data warehouse solution, Indiana University demonstrated a novel use and adoption of the agile data virtualization methodology in support of an enterprise-wide data analytics and decision-making platform.

“The key, innovative technology that enabled the University’s adoption of agile business intelligence was the successful use of data virtualization,” said Dan Young, chief data architect at Indiana University. “The Denodo Platform provided the flexibility to solve the complex issue of University data integration. The Denodo Platform has opened up the opportunity to create a logical data warehouse, leading to an improved self-service BI experience for users.”

The Denodo Platform has empowered the University to quickly and seamlessly integrate disparate data sources and present this information through visualization tools, such as Tableau, in a secure, high-performing manner. Leveraging the Denodo Platform, Indiana University is now able to provide university-wide self-service BI and develop interactive reports and trends using modern reporting tools. The DSI enables all University schools to gauge and assess fiscal trends and academic unit health, and it helps HR to identify trends in employee metrics and behavior in support of strategic staffing initiatives.

“We are excited to see how fast Indiana University has been able to roll out their modern data architecture to support their DSI across the entire university,” said Ravi Shankar, CMO at Denodo. “We are glad to see that Denodo’s advanced, best-in-class features like the dynamic query optimizer and self-service search have been instrumental in meeting the needs of Indiana University with unprecedented speed.”
