Bringing Business Knowledge to Education: Lessons Learned and Best Practices in Data Management and Analytics - Special Double Session: Part 1 - Sponsored by AVAST Software

Thursday, October 17 | 5:30PM–6:20PM | Ballroom C
Session Type: Professional Development
Higher education faces significant challenges to reduce costs and improve student success and research productivity. The flood of data that can help address those challenges can be leveraged with analytics, but how? How can you stay afloat and find the answers you need? How should you approach the task of getting buy-in from stakeholders? How can you ensure reliable decisions that lead to better outcomes? Education is not business, but corporate America's experience with analytics can be applied to our institutions and challenges. This session will bring together leaders from higher education with analytics innovators in the retail, government, and insurance industries to share best and cutting-edge practices and lessons learned that can be applied to your institution. EDUCAUSE Vice President Susan Grajek will facilitate what is sure to be a lively and insightful discussion in this special double session.
