Business Intelligence (BI) can provide accurate, up to date and easily-accessible data about your organisation and its environment, allowing your college or university to be competitive, adapt more quickly to changing circumstances, plan for the future and optimise its limited resources. Unfortunately many colleges and universities do not yet have the information that they need to make those confident, sound business decisions. Where they do, the processes to generate it are often labour intensive and far from optimised. And yet the majority of institutions are capturing and providing vast quantities of data for multiple purposes, as well as shouldering the burden of paying for access to national data sets and analytical services.
But despite these challenges, the picture is all far from gloomy, with several institutions already reaping the strategic and operational benefit from their investment in BI, and a growing appetite and capacity across the sector as a whole for further development.
Jisc is now planning a significant new BI initiative.
See the new Jisc BI shared service currently under development and help actively shape how it may help institutions tackle the challenges identified and maximize the value that effective BI can deliver.
