Reporting and Analytics Brief

Why Read This Research

Reporting and analytics tools provide a way to organize, communicate, visualize, and analyze data. In some tools, advanced capabilities are now being included, such as natural language processing (NLP), used to respond to voiced questions, and automated predictive AI capabilities. Institutions have ever-increasing expectations for data-driven decisions and imperatives to react organizationally to new pressures and problems that surface unexpectedly and almost daily. The ability to produce usable, engaging analysis in hours or days—not weeks or months—has become the new standard for higher education analytics.
