Colleges and universities collect vast amounts and types of data, but it’s typically spread across different schools, departments and campuses in various formats and multiple systems – making it a huge challenge to aggregate, connect and distribute to users.
Progressive universities and colleges are already implementing data integration, data visualisation and analytics solutions across the student life cycle to empower decision-makers.
The goal is to go beyond descriptive statistics and reporting on what has happened in the past to providing a best assessment on what will happen in the future, according to business analytics provider SAS.
When you apply advanced analytics to this data across the student life cycle, you can:
- Generate deeper insight into students, the quality of student experiences and the external variables influencing their acceptance, retention and graduation rates
- Uncover patterns and trends to make informed, proactive decisions that improve asset utilisation, student experiences and outcomes
- Easily share information across institutional boundaries
