Webinar | NYIT’s Journey to a Modern Data Infrastructure for Deep Analysis

This webinar is a part of the EDUCAUSE Industry & Campus Solutions series.

Officials at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) wanted to quickly evolve the institution's infrastructure so they could make data more available. They faced strategic questions around financial aid and recruitment but lacked the data infrastructure and technology to answer them. After moving from on-premise to the cloud, they were able to take a deep dive into their data to answer questions such as whether they were recruiting students likely to be successful and how unmet financial need impacts student retention. In this webinar, Becky Frieden, senior director of Enterprise Applications & Decision Support Systems, will share NYIT’s analytics journey including why they sought to modernize their data infrastructure, the process for securing buy-in, the importance of having easily accessible data, and the critical role of building a culture of trust in data.
