Data warehouses act as a central authority in data management by forcing a single authoritative data source; however, the implementation, if not properly planned, may lead to an unmanageable or restrictive environment. Multidirectional data flows, enabled by mutual trust, allows for a hierarchy of data management that makes use of the concept of composite truth; a concept that aligns data authority with data owners, and a concept that may provide the flexibility needed in Higher Education.
