AUSTIN, Texas—An international conference hosted by The University of Texas at Austin from May 6-8 will provide insight and ideas on how universities can use "business intelligence" software solutions to clarify complicated issues and help leaders make the best planning and strategic decisions for their institutions.
More than 200 representatives from 98 universities will attend the Higher Education Data Warehousing (HEDW) forum at the Radisson Hotel and Suites on Town Lake, 111 Cesar Chavez at Congress, hosted by The University of Texas at Austin’s Information Quest Department. Participants will include technical developers and administrators of data access and reporting systems, data custodians, institutional researchers and consumers of data at universities.
"The conference will allow us to share information on how business intelligence software solutions can make multi-faceted issues clearer, so university leaders can make timely, effective decisions in the dynamic environment of higher education, research and public service," said Fred Friedrich, associate vice president in the Office of Accounting at The University of Texas at Austin.
Friedrich said the software solutions involve combining and distilling business and other complex data and the use of innovative technology tools.
