The BI Portal helps to market BI offerings at UW

EIIA team contributes to EDUCAUSE business intelligence guidance

The Enterprise Information, Integration & Analytics team helped develop content for the EDUCAUSE Review’s “Running a BI Shop” series of four how-to papers on creating business intelligence (BI) programs at higher education institutions. Anja Canfield-Budde, Interim Associate Vice President for Information Management, coauthored the articles along with a fellow BI expert at Purdue University. The articles compare BI planning efforts at Purdue University and the UW, revealing common themes: the value of framing the discussion, obtaining broad stakeholder input, and producing a simple, easily communicated strategy. Aimed at new and seasoned BI professionals, the articles are focused on the following:

  1. Strategic Planning
  2. Building the Organization
  3. Managing the Work
  4. Marketing Your Products
