A University-wide collaboration for fast access to accurate information … and improved decision making.
Using information to support decision-making is a key tenet of responsible management of the University. BlueCube is the data warehouse solution that will give Drake’s decision makers an unprecedented ease of access to information in a fraction of the time.
Decisions at Drake often need to be made on the spur of the moment: Are there enough students interested in biology within a given region to merit sending a biology professor along to a recruiting event? Or what student demographics or academic domains seem to correlate with high achievement? With blueCube ⎯ Drake’s new Business Intelligence system for accessing, analyzing and reporting the data stored in the University’s enterprise business systems ⎯ we can now convert that data into useable, accurate, and timely information to enable effective and efficient decisions.
