VUIT DataOps

Integrating enterprise on-prem applications, academic development and cloud offerings for the purpose of improving student experience and research capabilities across the Vanderbilt Community

Service Description

VUIT DataOps (formerly Platform Services), realigns the BI Reports team which will be rebranded as Data Analysis and the Platform Services team as Platform Operations, hence Data & Operations (DataOps). DataOps will be integrally involved in the institution-wide initiative around evolving of the university's data and analytics strategy.

DataOps Data Analysis will continue to perform dashboard creation, analytics reporting, visualization design, and report development, using Oracle Transactional Business Intelligence (OTBI), Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC), Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE), Tableau, and PowerBI. 

DataOps Platform Operations strives to provide top-notch application assistance to enterprise linux-based applications. This includes installing and configuring the Platform such as tomcat or IBM Datastage, third-party enterprise-level applications such as Automic and Oracle Business Intelligence, and assistance maintaining them. We administer both in-house and cloud based products such as Atlassian applications, and SAAS solutions such as AppDynamics for application monitoring. We work with the Vanderbilt community on a case-by-case basis to assist in the procurement and deployment of novel software solutions that further Vanderbilt University’s education and research goals.
