Assets Collection Refresh Schedule

The Assets collection is refreshed nightly, Monday through Friday, following the completion of BEN Assets batch processing (updates should usually be completed by start of business). In addition, the ASSETS, ASSET_CATEGORIES and ASSET_LOCATIONS tables are captured in monthly snapshots at at the close of the BEN Assets period.

Source of the Data

The data in the Data Warehouse that is accessible via the Business Objects BEN Assets universes comes from the BEN Assets module of the University's financial system, BEN Financials. The universes also join to related tables in the General Ledger and Space@Penn data collections.

Time Span Covered

The Data Warehouse stores current information on building, fixed, movable and land assets, as well as historical information on assets, categories and locations. The data goes as far back as March 2008, (the MAR-08 accounting period, in fiscal year 2008), when BEN Assets was implemented, and continues from that point, through the current open period.
