Today, WSU uses a variety of methods to store, share, secure, and analyze our data across the system.
In the future, our goal is to create efficiencies, eliminate duplicative efforts, and streamline our analysis process to provide leadership with accurate, timely data.

In the fall of 2021, we conducted an initial survey of technology and applications used across the system. This provided a starting point for a more robust inventory process in fall 2022, when we asked Area Technology Officers and Area Finance Officers to review and add additional detail and any new applications to their previously collected data.
From the extensive results of nearly 950 supporting technology applications, we analyzed the types and uses of applications to start to identify future efficiencies.
