HEDW 2023 Conference – Call for Proposals

The HEDW 2023 Conference Call for Proposals is now open!  This is your chance to share your knowledge and experiences in Data Warehousing, Business Intelligences and all things Data.  For more information, click on the conference link in the sidebar.


David Eubanks from Furman University will be doing a two session webinar on Gathering and Warehousing Survey Data.  The first session will focus on common pain points in gathering and warehousing survey data.  The second session will focus on analyzing the data collected in surveys.  Both sessions will include demos using common tools such as R, Qualtrics, MS-SQL, and PowerBI.

To register, visit the Events page.


From a webinar question to action! We have posted a Report requirements template developed by one of the universities being used in their Workday implementation, and we wanted to share! Report templates (and other items like data models) can be located in the Library/Data Models and Templates page – for free!


A valuable feature of HEDW.org is the Forum section.  While most members are aware that section exists, we would like to share a few ways that you can better leverage the value of that section.

  1. Subscribe to forums.  How do you do that?  Simply go to the Forum tab at the top of this page.  Once in the Forum area, click on the particular forums that you want to follow.  Once inside each forum, click on the ‘Subscribe’ link in the top right of the forum page.
  2. Subscribe to the Announcement forum.  This forum is where all of the general announcements are posted and guarantees that you will always know what is going on with HEDW.
  3. Utilize the digest feature.  Everyone is busy and so finding time to visit HEDW.org on a regular basis may not always be possible.  A great way to keep up with the Forums that you are subscribed to is to utilize the Digest feature.  To set the Digest feature, click on ‘Edit Profile’ on the upper right portion of this page.  That will take you to the Edit page.  In the middle of the page is the ‘bbPress Digest Emails’ section.  In this section,  you can chose the frequency, time and forums that included in the Digest.  Once complete, please click on ‘Update Profile’ at the bottom of the page.  Please note that you have the ability to get updates from all Forums here.

Taking these steps will allow you to better leverage your HEDW membership and get regular updates about what is going on, both within the Forum section and with HEDW.  Any questions can be sent to the HEDW Communication Committee.  Go update now!
