RMUG 2014 Presentation Kent Brooks From Data to Insight

Published on

During an 18 month ERP upgrade Casper College began a journey to learn how to effectively deploy Business Intelligence. As we began to more fully understand the scope of our project as well as the enormity of this new and growing field we began asking how we could more effectively utilize business analytics for our entire data set. We will cover the types of tools, costs and how you can begin your journey to learn about this amazing field. We will also touch on the almost untouched topic of analtyical ethics. This session will help you move from being knowledge free to a tenderfoot in the expanding field of Business Intelligence in education.

  3. 3. RMUG2014 LaramieCountyCommunityCollege Overview 3
  4. 4. RMUG2014 LaramieCountyCommunityCollege The Experience − From Data to Insight 4
  5. 5. RMUG2014 LaramieCountyCommunityCollege The Experience “We don’t have enough data….the sample size is too small” -Moneyball 5
  6. 6. RMUG2014 LaramieCountyCommunityCollege The Experience The Data Challenge (Part 1)  We have Web Intelligence but are lacking the ability to create reports from our whole data set.  SAP( for example) = good daily reports but no ad hoc, no visualization no dashboards 6
  7. 7. RMUG2014 LaramieCountyCommunityCollege The Experience The Data Challenge (Part 2)  We are being asked to be wise stewards of state resources about a field that is brand new  The skills we are being asked to learn to do this right are in addition to all the other things we must know 7
  8. 8. RMUG2014 LaramieCountyCommunityCollege The Experience Overcoming the Data Challenge  TDWI  BI Scorecard = http://tinyurl.com/l6u76yl  Higher Ed BI Conference = NKU  HEDW = http://www.hedw.org 8
  9. 9. RMUG2014 LaramieCountyCommunityCollege The Experience Observations for the BI Tenderfoot  Getting a common set of definitions is important 9
  10. 10. RMUG2014 LaramieCountyCommunityCollege The Experience Observations for the BI Tenderfoot  We are decent at collecting data but not at turning data into useful and timely information 10
  11. 11. RMUG2014 LaramieCountyCommunityCollege The Experience Observations for the BI Tenderfoot  Not one tool does everything  Even if you say you have a Data Warehouse you can only say you're doing Business Intelligence if you have tools to change data into useful information. 11
  12. 12. RMUG2014 LaramieCountyCommunityCollege The Experience Observations for the BI Tenderfoot  We need collect more data more rapidly and turn it into information  There is never enough resources allocated to education  The perfect is the enemy of the good  People matter more than technology 12
  13. 13. RMUG2014 LaramieCountyCommunityCollege The Experience Observations for the BI Tenderfoot  Premise options give more options and capabilities for customization than cloud options  This is all brand new, you need a data scientist but they are not common….yet  The only KPI that matters is user adoption 13

  15. 15. RMUG2014 LaramieCountyCommunityCollege The Experience Other Observations:  100% BI utilization should be goal  Immediate need is still real-time Ad Hoc Reporting and analysis  Ethics in Analytics is virtually ignored  Whatever you do should be Data Source Agnostic 15
  16. 16. RMUG2014 LaramieCountyCommunityCollege The Experience CROA for daily reporting combined with other tools for: Data Visualization Charts/ Graphs Mobile Analysis is a very reasonable solution. 16
