IQ WORKDAY HCM UPDATE - April 7, 2021
In January 2020, IQ announced a pause on development of Cognos products, Tableau extracts and REST Service data feeds for Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) data. We are continuing to collaborate with Enterprise Business Information Technology Solutions (eBITS) to develop Workday HCM data capabilities via the enterprise data warehouse, but have not defined a timetable for offering that data.
If you have an immediate need for Workday HCM data for reporting or application development, please inquire with eBITS at askUS@austin.utexas.edu.
IQ SERVICES UPDATE - March 16, 2020
In order to support our community and fight against the spread of COVID19, all IQ staff are working remotely. During this time, we remain fully available to support our services and users. IQ does not anticipate any service impacts as a result of the university response to COVID19 - Cognos, Tableau, and other IQ services are fully operational.
Please continue to send your IQ requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
IQ WORKDAY HCM UPDATE - January 28, 2020
With UT’s implementation of Workday, the university tasked Information Quest (IQ) with the goal of developing reporting products to provide continued access to legacy data while enabling trend reporting spanning the legacy and Workday systems.
IQ has made great progress toward this goal. However, after focused effort to integrate complex Workday (WD) data structures, it is apparent that more work is required to offer accurate, comprehensive Human Capital Management (HCM) data and analytics products to the university.
As a result, IQ will pause WD-sourced products, including the HCM Worker Year Over Year Cube, while determining the best approach for obtaining HCM data with the highest degree of data veracity. IQ and Enterprise Business Information Technology Solutions (eBITS) are working together to establish high quality products using WD data.
For more details, see the IQ Workday HCM Update Document.
