A Peek Behind the UMBC Analytics Curtain

Version 4

    For several years, the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) has partnered with iStrategy and then Blackboard to develop a data warehouse that helps turn information into insight. In this session, participants will get a quick overview of what we think we've learned, followed by a more detailed peek behind the curtain of how we did so. Specifically, we'll shine light on what we had to do to modify some home-grown processes to Blackboard's delivered functionality, but also share what we didn't change and why. Finally, we'll share an informal road map of where we think we're going, under one condition: we expect and want feedback from participants on perceived issues and opportunities.
