Moving from Data to Decisions

Clients submit federally defined data formats for the data they'd like to load into their business intelligence application and decide who needs to have access to the application.

For example, under WIA, the WIASRD file is the baseline data file to populate the business intelligence application with data. These data formats are simple to obtain since every Case Management system must be able to output them to meet federal data submission requirements. FutureWork Systems does the rest.

Below are the simple steps loading workforce system data into your business intelligence application service.

  1. Client decides what data to make available in the business intelligence Web application (WIASRD/PIRL, LEPR, TAA, and/or Custom Data Set)

  2. Data is securely submitted to FutureWork Systems Data Center via secured FTP for processing by the FutureWorks data team

  3. The FutureWorks data team runs data checks, including validating data following federal data validation rules, and returns a detailed and understandable validation report back to client

  4. Once the data is processed, the Web application services are updated on a staging application pending final client approval to go live

  5. First round of quality aassurance is conducted by the data team

  6. Data reconciliation reports are delivered to key client contacts for review and approval

  7. Final application quality assurance is conducted by the data team

  8. Web application is updated with new data

  9. Registered users are notified via email

  10. End-users create the reports and analytics they need to support program and policy decisions.
    Schedule a team review of what's new in the data? Organize a Quarterly Performance Review?
The entire process typically takes 24-48 hours.

Oh yeah! WIOA data views are popping up in Performance Matters

We're not quite receiving the new WIOA PIRL file from our Performance Matters clients, but we are ready for it!

Regardless, the data we do receive under WIA's WIASRD file is enough to provide us with what we need to calculate the lionshare of WIOA indicators. Clients should expect to see WIOA specific data views appear on their Performance Matters site as early as July, along with announcements for special Webinar sessions to introduce them.

But to really understand it for Workforce Development, you must see it in action and learn from the experts who have seen it done across the country and at all levels across the workforce development system, including ETA, States and Workforce Development Boards. WIOA reporting and analysis can be push-button simple and empowering to agency decision-making.

WIOA Dashboard site launched

We may be jumping the gun, but we already converted our WIA dashboard site to a WIOA dashboard site. We really couldn't wait to freshen up the look and feel and prepare for some mobile-friendly dashboards. Hurray!

Dashboards currently report the most current USDOL quarterly WIA data, so we aren't quite at WIOA yet...but we'll be ready when the data is! Check out the new site and don't forget to sign up to be notified when dashboards are updated with new data.
