The George Washington University (GWU) is the largest institution of higher education in the District of Columbia with more than 20,000 students.

Challenges

  • Support academic business intelligence
  • Optimize operational efficiency
The Informatica Platform is agnostic—it doesn’t turn its back on any type of data. By allowing the university to integrate data of any type, including social media, the technology is helping GWU maintain its position as a vibrant and attractive university.
