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

—Jelena Roljevic, Assistant Vice President of Business Intelligence Services, Division of Information Technology


Business Need

Support regulatory requirements

Minimize risk



Departments required real-time or near real-time data access for operational reporting

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
