The BI Hi Ed Market Opportunity
•
•
•
•
•
Funding/ERP are top issues among institutions
94% of all Hi Ed Institutions do not have a DW
80% of US students are non-university attendees
Annual Hi Ed ERP expenditures at $3 Billion
ERP spend is increasing at 20% annually
*Source: EDUCAUSE 2003 Survey
Data Warehouse Relevancy
• Few institutions have all of the major institutional
data areas available
• Most start with either student data, human
resources, or finance data
• Their goal is to evolve toward a comprehensive
set of data elements and reports
*Source: EDUCAUSE 2003 Survey
Is this what you are hearing?
“How do we make
decisive
improvement
decisions
when we
can’t drill
down into
our data to
uncover
the cause-andeffect patterns
that affect our
institution?”
“We have
enormous
amounts of
data available
to us, but by
the time our
department
can access
it we are in
a reactive
mode.”
“Our users are
demanding
so much
information
that our
systems are
bogged down
from a huge
backlog of
unanswered
requests.”
“How can
I efficiently
empower my
staff to see
day-to-day
operations
and align their
efforts with
the institution’s
long-term
strategy?”
“Our users
lack the tools
to easily
interpret
and make
decisions
based on
available
data.”
Hi Ed’s Economic Challenges
• Increased accountability for the university’s use of public funds
– Current economy has led to increasing enrollment and less
funding
• Increasing enrollment leads to complex curriculum planning
– Efficient space and resource utilization is a critical success factor
• Matching faculty to the needs of curriculum delivery
– Overcoming academic culture of autonomy and decentralization
• Accountability to the public for the contributions of faculty
– Higher accountability due to collecting and analyzing data
• Declining funds force tough resource allocation decisions
– Administrative and academia are historically reluctant to change
Hi Ed’s Infrastructure Challenges
• Data Collection
– Data is locked in different systems
– Manual processes required to extract available data
• Reporting
– Administrators scramble to pull data from different sources
– Work is tedious, time-consuming and driven by deadlines
• Analysis
– Lack of robust tools available for in-depth data analysis
– Data analysis is basic and non-conclusive
• Information Distribution
– Information is manually updated to websites
– Much of the information and results are not accessible
• Institutional Approach Changes
– Changes are not driven by scientific methods
Adding Value to Solve the Problem
• What products or services do you currently provide that
can help overcome these challenges?
• What specialized BI knowledge does your business have
that can be leveraged in Hi Ed?
• What are the key differentiators you utilize when selling to
Hi Ed?
• Does your technology roadmap complement upcoming
Microsoft releases for Hi Ed?
• Who do you generally sell to in HiEd?
What if you could deliver…
An improvement in their long term planning through timely,
accurate report delivery?
A reduction in their facilities expenditures through more
accurate space planning?
An improvement in their proactive decision making through
access to higher quality, readily available data?
More efficient use of their institutional funds through better
analysis of projected expenditures and revenues?
