2019 – The Data Discovery Journey – Where Is Our Data?

Presentation Summary

At University of Michigan, our CIO asked a simple question. Where is our data? The answer was not as simple. ITS ventured out on a journey to assess and visualize our institutional data. We started with the enterprise data supported in our central IT department, and are now moving on to campus. Our first effort assessed the data from a system level – capturing audit logs from integration platforms, databases, web services, flat files and APIs. The next step of our journey was to create high level “blueprint” diagrams of the data landscape across enterprise systems to demonstrate the complexity and illustrate risks . Our data discovery is our predecessor to our ERP modernization effort.
