7I2 Setting Targets for Improvement
Western understands the critical importance of maintaining flexible data systems and of improving measurements as an ongoing process. The SunGard SCT Banner System will help to improve data collection, accuracy in data reporting, and result in decreased redundancy across five major modules (2P4). Determining the kinds of reports needed and providing that data is targeted as an area requiring focused attention.
Another target for improvement is identifying what data exist, determining who needs what data, how the data can best be distributed, and which data should be made centrally accessible.
Other targets for improving ways of measuring effectiveness include the full implementation of an information portal within the Banner Gold system and the acquisition and deployment of a data warehouse solution for information storage and harvesting.
