Benefits and key features

The MIT Data Warehouse is a central data source which combines data from various Institute administrative systems. Access to the data is controlled by authorizations maintained within the ROLES Database. Community members with appropriate authorizations can access data via SQL or any SQL-based tool. They have the ability to export the results to other software programs (e.g., FileMaker, Microsoft Excel) and manipulate the data locally. The results may also be joined with local data.

The Data Warehouse is available seven days a week, except for Saturdays from 3 - 3:10 PM during the weekly backup.

  • 8AM - 8PM: Normal user hours. The Warehouse is stable, and no data are being loaded.
  • 8PM - 7AM: Data loads. Although the Warehouse can be accessed, the data are in an inconsistent state because they are being refreshed.
  • 7AM - 8AM: Data extract processing. Data are loaded and stable. Users may access the Warehouse during this time, but the response time might be slow.
