Editor's note: Ranger Today continues a series of articles on the future directions contained within the university's self-study.
Data: Accessibility of Documentation
By Ilya Yakovlev, UW-Parkside chief information officer
Accessibility of Documentation is a reflection of the need to treat data and information as digital assets. Key properties of these assets are timeliness, accuracy, consistency, completeness, and relevance. Tools and approaches such as SharePoint, ImageNow, Lean Process Management, and others that help enable these properties are becoming more available and more user-friendly.Students, parents, government agencies, the media, and others continue to demand more data. This requires that UW-Parkside show a high level of compliance and that we meet the expectation that all information presented is backed by evidence. Another benefit of adopting this direction is better decision-making that leads to greater satisfaction on the part of our key constituencies.
