Request Title: Dumps + WME Gap Analysis

  • Request Description: What is the planned path forward regarding WME and Dumps products? Is there an opportunity to consolidate these two products for better functionality/maintenance coverage going forward?

We have WME Exports and our existing Dumps products which both have components of exporting our data for consumption by third parties.

From a product perspective we would like to better understand who currently uses Dumps and specifically what feature sets within Dumps they use and if this is something we should be looking to add into WME to perhaps provide increased functionality but also move us towards having a single product offering for data consumption use cases. Some supporting materials are listed below:

This is what OKAPI has

And this is Dumps

MNadrofsky set Due Date to Dec 1 2021, 5:00 AM.

I have just seen this today, and not sure how I can help. Please let me know. Thanks.

I also just saw this today, and it's something we've been talking about for a very long time. I'm happy to jump in on a meeting to discuss, there's a clear answer here but it's broad, and I think it's crucial that we look at the whole picture.

2021-12-08 - Technology Steering Committee

  • In discussing this with @wdoran and the enterprise team we agreed that work on this will not yet commence until new members are onboarded
  • January 2022 is target start date for design jams with data engineering, PET, and enterprise
DAbad changed Due Date from Dec 1 2021, 5:00 AM to Feb 28 2022, 5:00 AM.Dec 16 2021, 6:33 PM

A meeting is set for Jan 18th with folks from Data Engineering, and one is to be scheduled with WME folks as well, to start talking about what would be needed for a common dumps architecture.

The meeting with WME folks has been moved to Jan 27th due to scheduling issues.

World's shortest summary of discussions from both meetings:

  • Everyong agreed that having one common platform that accomodates all three groups (Data Engineering, WME, PET/Dumps) would be grand.
  • Different groups have particular needs, e.g. access to private data via the databases ort certain customer requirements, that would have to be covered by any common platform.
  • This is a project of very broad scope that will need solid support from upper management and dedicated resources before getting underway, even in the design phase.

Next up, we should have a short joint meeting to hammer out immediate next steps. Who wants to schedule it, @WDoranWMF ? (Thanks in advance :-P )
