Data and BI teams waste between 60% and 80% of their time doing data integration and preparation. As higher education institutions prepare for the transformative period ahead, spending this much time on tasks that don’t yield direct value just slows down the path to truly data-driven decisions. Data teams should be empowered to focus all their time on extracting insights from data and delivering value to the rest of the organisation.
At Cloud Officer, we're leveraging our cloud and data analytics expertise to help data teams within higher education institutions deliver value faster. We do this by following our proven methodology, which focuses on 3 main pillars: People, Platform, and Processes.
Your BI platform should allow staff from across your institution to explore, use and publish data on demand.
It's impossible to know how your requirements will change in the future, so your BI toolset must scale well.
Nothing should compromise security and a strong governance framework needs to be the foundation of your platform.
Being frugal is a priority and this happens by making sure your architecture leverages existing skills and capabilities.
We always start by understanding your BI project. We'll want to know more about the data that you'll work with and the analytics you plan to run on top of it.
We'll use our reference architecture to create a best-practice platform that can meet your current needs, but also scale as you ramp up your analytics.
We'll also work with you to identify skill gaps in your team, train and develop analysts and data scientists, and create processes that help you get from data to insights fast.
We're your long term partners, so we'll help you move beyond standard analytics and simple reports, to predictive models that help you understand what your next action should be.
