Boston, MA – October 1, 2014 – Jenzabar®, Inc., a leading provider of software, strategies and services for higher education, announced today that the Jenzabar Analytics tool is helping higher education institutions address big data from across the entire campus to make better and faster business decisions by accurately using the right data.
Institutions are already employing the principles of business intelligence to make more strategic operational decisions, but some are still trying to tackle “Big Data.” Jenzabar Analytics provides metrics for all datasets, combining data on the institution and data on prospects, students, and alumni. The analytic tool delivers dashboards, reports, visualization options, and real-time monitoring. Extending data-based decision making across all areas of the college or university, Jenzabar Analytics helps improve operations, enhance pedagogy and learning, increase student success, and optimize advancement.
“Park University is in the process of addressing analytics and big data using Jenzabar Analytics and business intelligence tools,” said David Monchusie, CIO at Park University. “Analytics is a key component to evaluating what programs and activities are working or need improvement, and Park will continue to move ahead with our goal of collecting real-time data to make data-driven decisions.”
Jenzabar Analytics is integrated into Jenzabar ERP systems and built on top of the Cognos platform, a world leader of business intelligence. Developed by Jenzabar, Analytics offers one centralized repository of current and historical cross-campus data to measure, understand, and improve institutional performance.
“Big data is here to stay and needs to be utilized for enhanced efficiency, effectiveness, accountability, and to identify strategies for improving the student experience,” said Melanie Strodtman, Jenzabar Product Manager. “The Jenzabar Analytics offering helps higher education institutions leverage the power of the large quantities of data at their disposal and be better equipped to make impactful data-based decisions and thrive in today’s fast-moving and competitive higher education world.”
