An on-premise cloud-based data analytics solutions journey

Data is the key to determining the challenges our fundraising teams face and the accomplishments they make. As technology evolves, data access requires new tools, especially when that data's stored in private vendor clouds (an increasingly common practice). In 2021, Children's Minnesota Foundation partnered with The Zuri Group to develop Aqueduct. This has become The Foundation’s turn-key data-aggregation solution to aggregate and strategically use data from Blackbaud’s Private Cloud as well as other in-house systems. We will describe our journey starting with a focus on acquiring the data, loading a data warehouse, and building the mechanisms to view and interact with the data. All this comes together in an Aqueduct-delivered dimensional data warehouse that allows us to efficiently use enterprise reporting tools (Power BI and Reporting Services) to drive important and impactful data-driven decisions.
