P-20 and Workforce Longitudinal System
P20W Data Warehouse
Over the past couple of months, the P20W Data Warehouse project team completed the design of the Identity Matching function of the P20W Data Warehouse system. The team also completed the preparation, mapping and loading of Group 1 data elements into the data warehouse. (See the P20W Data Warehouse Project Implementation Plan.) These data elements represent a portion of the data that the ERDC uses to perform identity matching and link an individual’s records across time and sectors. The team is currently creating the source-to-target mappings of the Group 2 Identity Matching data. Once the Identity Matching data is loaded into the data warehouse it will be validated, and the Identity Matching process with the new Informatica software tools will be defined. The team will then begin preparing, mapping and loading the core P20W data elements, as outlined in the Implementation Plan.
