Refresh Schedule

Space@Penn data is refreshed daily, on Monday through Friday evenings. Changes made through the the Peregrine Systems' FacilityCenter application will be reflected in the warehouse on the following day.

At the close of every month, snapshots of four of the more mutable tables in the Space@Penn data collection are moved to the historical data collection. These tables are Buildings, Floors, Rooms and Room Utilization. These monthly snapshots are saved for the current fiscal year and are available in the SpaceHistory@Penn data collection. At the end of each fiscal year, a year-end version of the files are saved and are also available through SpaceHistory@Penn.

Source of the Data
The data in the data warehouse that is accessible via the Business Objects Space@Penn universe comes from the Peregrine Systems' FacilityCenter application, commonly refered to as SPAN. The data in this universe includes descriptive information about rooms within the buildings associated with the University, as well as the utilization and occupation of those buildings, on a room level.

Time Span Covered
The Data Warehouse stores current information on buildings and rooms. The collection of this data began in June, 2001.
