Data Platform Use Cases for Higher Education

What’s driving the urgency for data insights? These are the top four use cases for college and university administrators and IT teams.

Technology Leadership as a Service

Maximize the Value of Data

With a centralized data platform, higher education institutions can unlock insights and unleash opportunities to grow and succeed.

But many IT leaders struggle to get stakeholders on board because:

Start and Scale with Speed and Ease

Data Platform Accelerators help IT leaders overcome inertia and maximize results at the following five critical stages:

1. Get to Greenlight with JAM Sessions

NorthBay Higher Education JAM Sessions are immersive workshops during which university teams work alongside our AWS experts to build a strawman data platform in just 10 days. JAM Sessions are how we help get projects approved and launched.

2. Plan for Data Platforms with Reference Architectures

Build a strong foundation for data management, governance and anonymization in a centralized environment with the future in mind. NorthBay has a decade of proven experience and frameworks that deliver results.

3. Build Use Cases with Platform Accelerators

Enable faster data on boarding and access for recruiting and enrollment, student success, alumni relations, or building operations. Our data ingestion orchestration engines, rules engines, data quality engine, and framework significantly reduce the time and risk associated with developing a centralized data platform.

4. Operate Confidently with the Operational Checklist

The NorthBay and AWS Data Platform Operations Checklist includes 150 mission-critical tasks to help your team prepare and ensure that your centralized data platform runs as expected.

5. Unleash Innovation

Maximize agility and insights by adding data sources at scale and better leverage AI/ML technologies.
