Principle 10 - Data Multiple uses.

Penn must plan for multiple uses of University administrative data, including operations, management decision making, planning, and ad hoc reporting.

 Rationale

Penn needs both strategic and tactical information--to perform current activities and plan for future activities--in order to fulfill its mission.

 Implications

  • Data not needed for operational uses must still be collected if needed to fulfill management and planning needs.
  • Physical implementation structures must enable both transactional and query uses of data.
  • Data originally intended for one use may become critical to another use. Monitoring this is part of the data steward's responsibility.
