11.30AM Why Data Analytics Matters Speaker: Nicole Wall, Senior Consultant, Blackboard Analytics Often Higher Education clients are too busy dealing with operational matters to step back and act strategically. The recent advent of both institutional and learning analytics has given universities the opportunity to undertake this strategic direction as a catalyst for continual improvement. No longer are decisions made based on just a mixture of qualitative and antidotal evidence but rather accurate multi-dimensional quantitative data.
Often the Business Intelligence strategy is driven solely towards management reporting with improvement being driven top down. During this presentation Nicole will discuss a holistic BI approach that positively impacts all constituents and how to overcome the typical impediments to driving successful outcomes.
