BI in Higher Education

I found the article on Data-Driven Descision-Making>> Who's on Your BI Shortlist?" to be an interesting read. It highlighted a couple points that I couldn't agree with more:

  • The biggest risk is multiple departments deploying multiple BI platforms without any central oversight. This scenario is eerily familiar to CIOs who wrestled with network software installations in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

  • Even if a BI project is limited to a departmental deployment, it’s critical to keep the university CIO in the loop. Without CIO recognition and involvement, other university departments may embark on BI projects of their own—without leveraging the knowledge and skill set gained from the initial BI project.

    It is very important that Higher Education institutions leverage and coordinate the skills necessary to deploy effective BI tools.
