Data Warehouse Table Updates Related to June 28th-July 1st PeopleSoft Financials Implementation

Beginning the afternoon of Monday, June 30th, several tables will be unavailable while they undergo updates related to the EFS implementation. Backup versions of some of these tables will be available either in a permanent historical format or a temporary conversion backup table. New versions of tables will be released after they have been tested.

In addition to the tables being updated, some tables will become static between June 27th and July 1st. Many of these tables are fiscal year based, and their new counterparts will be created over the same time period. Others will be updated in Phase II, and a few do not have updated versions.

DWFS, DWIN, DWRA and DWUS will not be updated with new EFS data, and will become static on a staggered schedule over the next four months as CUFS updates come to an end.

Finally, some tables won’t change structurally, but will have new EFS data appear over the coming week.

Extended System Maintenance

The normal maintenance window from 6:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Sundays will be extended this weekend because of the initial updates happening with the EFS conversion. The window for maintenance this Sunday, June 15th, will be from 6:00 AM - 3:00 PM. Please plan accordingly.

After 10pm on Sunday, several tables will be unavailable for up to 48 hours, while they undergo conversion to EFS format. During the outage, backup version of these tables will be available. We anticipate that the maximum amount of time a table may be down is 48 hours. The tables will be released after they have been tested.

Another set of tables will become static over the weekend, and will continue to be available in the Data Warehouse. Some of these will be updated during Phase II.

Finally, two new tables will be available starting on Monday following the conversion.
