Are stakeholders struggling to access critical information?
Colleges and universities are awash with data. From enrollment, donor and student data to data about classes, achievements, demographics, intellectual property and grants.
Yet, often this data is trapped inside computer systems and is only accessible through rigid, multi-page PDF reports. This forces stakeholders to wade through report after report to find the information they need. And, where they can’t find what they need, they end up making an ad-hoc information request.
As these requests mount up, this puts IT and data analysis teams under increasing pressure. So, how do you choose higher education reporting software that gets you on top of all this data? How do you use your data to ensure enrollment rates are stable and that graduation rates are going up, while squeezing the maximum value from your budget?
