Many industries use business intelligence software tools to convert their data into information, and leverage that information to make business decisions. It’s only a matter of time before the same tools, technology and processes become main-stream in the educational space.
I came across this article in School CIO; it’s about the use of a business intelligence in education. It’s encouraging to see these examples as tools and technology like SAS and Cognos find their place in education. These are very powerful tools educators and school systems can benefit from. These tools still need to be simplified to increase the adoption. Education has lot to gain with this convergence. If you get chance, check out the article. Let me know what your opinion is, and how you are using the intelligence technology in your environment.
