From recruiting and admissions to academics and finance, deans, directors, faculty, and staff are using Business Intelligence to drive institutional excellence at U-M.
The University has made substantial investments in enterprise-wide administrative systems in recent years. The real power of these investments comes from strategic direction and tactical decision-making based on data – providing the means to work smarter.
Also referred to as academic analytics or institutional intelligence, BI refers to the collecting, structuring, analyzing, and leveraging of data to turn it into easy-to-understand information. It is a way of combining data in new ways to reveal previously unseen efficiencies, enabling leaders to use their expertise to make data-driven decisions.
Business Intelligence Council
The Business Intelligence Council (BIC) is a University-wide representation of administrators who have made significant commitments to driving the success of BI on campus. The BIC focuses on developing relationships and networking opportunities for the BI Community of Experts (BICE) and others actively involved in BI at U-M.
Recommendations made by the Advisors of Information Management Strategy (AIMS) led to the establishment of the BIC as part of an effort to foster a Business Intelligence Competency Community.
