Project purpose

The project aims to set up a more precise and complete data structure, clean up data, improve data quality and prepare for data conversion to the new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.

  • Establish a diagnosis of the University's financial and HR data
  • Identify the needs related to financial and HR data of members of the university community
  • Develop a vision for the future data structure
  • Build the financial and HR data structure that will be used in the new ERP
  • Clean existing data and collect/complete missing data
  • Transform, convert and migrate the data
