FASTAR - General Information
This document gives a general information of FASTAR and the services it provides.
The University of Wisconsin Facility for Shared Technology and Resources (FASTAR)
was initiated and funded by UW System Administration to provide UW institutions a
shared resource of hardware and staff. Our initial goal, and still a primary focus,
is to assist campuses that are in implementation or in operation of the PeopleSoft
Student Administration System. Since its inception the set of services provided by
FASTAR has grown to include services that are of value not only to PeopleSoft
systems, but to many other systems as well. The facility is housed at the Division
of Information Technology at UW-Madison.
Note: Interactive Reporting, including both the IR Workspace (web) and the Studio Desktop client, will be decommissioned on March 1st, 2019. Neither the web nor the desktop software will be available or supported after this date.
UW-Madison affiliates can find more information on alternative tools on the Office of Data Management and Analytics Services website.
Other UW System affiliates can find additional information, as well as a list of support contacts, on the UWBI Support website.
