ITS supports the following systems, which provide data related to development and alumni relations activities at U-M.
DART provides the authoritative source for alumni addresses, prospect management, and gift processing for the University. DART contains data regarding individuals, corporations, and foundations who support the development effort at U-M. It is used by the Office of Development, as well as by development staff across the University. DART has interfaces to the M-Pathways Student Administration, Human Resources Management, and Financial Systems.
Data for reporting from the DART system is available in the Development data set, which is part of the U-M Data Warehouse. Users can access the data by running predefined queries or by creating ad hoc queries. BusinessObjects is the supported query and reporting tool used to access the U-M Data Warehouse.
Alumni and donors are able to update their biographical data (phone, address, etc.), view their giving history and make pledge payments.
