And finally, don’t forget a free service available to the UW developer community–Web Service Design Reviews. If you are designing, developing, or integrating a Web service and would like some help, call on us! More information is available here:
The Decision Support Web Service (DSWS) v1 is live in production. The service contains resources to view the Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) Data Availability Summary – the date and time data was last loaded and load frequencies — and to search for reports available in the EDW.
The web service is utilized by the newly launched Decision Support web site – “Delivering data to meet your business needs” — but it is completely public, requiring no authentication or authorization to access.
