What is CHAMP?
The current WebPortal/DataLink is being upgraded. The new re-branded version will
be called CHAMP which is a custom application that runs on top of InforEAM/Datastream.
InforEAM is an Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) system formerly called Datastream.
Datastream has been used by the City of Chicago’s Department of Water Management
for many processes such as workforce management, inventory management, and asset
management since 2004. CHAMP will be used to process work orders and plays a role
in inventory and asset management.
Can my computer run CHAMP?
A computer that has enough power to run old WebPortal/DataLink will run CHAMP.
CHAMP is a Web-architected, Internet-based application that can only be accessed
through Internet Explorer (version 8 and 9). If your computer can run IE8 or IE9,
you can run CHAMP. Please ensure that the browser is not running in compatibility
mode. Additional information, guides, and support will be available when CHAMP is
Are my workflows going to be changed?
No. Workflows and the work tasks performed in WebPortal/Datalink will not change
with this upgrade. The configuration of old WebPortal/DataLink/Datastream is being
migrated into CHAMP. The user interface has been changed significantly (i.e. buttons
may look different, the means of data entry may have changed) but the existing workflows,
codes, and configurations will remain the same.
