Academic Analytics: Business Intelligence for Higher Education

For more than a quarter of a century, corporate America has benefited from business intelligence, the practice of using analytics to make informed business decisions. Today, colleges and universities are exploring ways they can leverage those same analytic tools in both administrative and instructional functions. 

In this special report, sponsored by Dell, Campus Technology looks at how institutions of higher education are using analytics to recruit and retain students as well as improve teaching and learning. In addition, the paper takes a brief look at the barriers of wider implementation of advanced analytics across all functional areas of a college or university.
