The George Washington University

The George Washington University boasts more than 25,000 students engaged in dozens of academic disciplines, spread across three campuses.

“We want to capitalize on opportunities -- to uncover insights and turn them into actionable intelligence for enhancing value to students, faculty and the community.”

Assistant Vice President of Business Intelligence Services, Division of Information Technology
Business Need
  • Provide access to trusted information across academic and administrative functions for actionable insights and fact based decision making in support of student retention, enrollment trends, financial performance and staffing
  • Support regulatory requirements
  • Reduce operating cost of labor intensive manual data acquisition
  • Minimize risk
  • Departments required real-time or near real-time data access for operational reporting
  • Time-consuming, manual cloud and on-prem data management processes took resources from more strategic activities and increased operating costs
  • Inconsistent data quality and a lack of transparency reduced credibility of the analytics environment
  • Insight discovery was interrupted by data spread across multiple ERP applications and spreadsheets
Solutions & Results
  • Institutionalized Business Intelligence and Data Governance
  • Accelerated time to insight discovery by replacing manual integration with pre-built connectivity and friendly data management interfaces
  • Introduced a variety of dashboards for actionable insight including: travel and expense, missing grades, general ledger, financial trends and enrollment
  • Reduced operational overhead by accelerating report compilation time by as much as 100 person-hours
