How University of Auckland uses MicroStrategy
Universities face the difficult task of steadily improving student success rates. The University of Auckland turned to MicroStrategy’s data analytics capabilities to reuse and visualize student data and see exactly where students are struggling in classes. This enabled staff to reach out to students earlier in their education and extend help before their final exams, significantly increasing their retention and pass rates.
“The complexity underneath has been completely masked so you can see a view of this information.”
Stephen Whiteside, Chief Digital Officer, The University of Auckland will be talking at the MicroStrategy’s Symposium series in Auckland which highlights the latest in BI and analytics. The event also features keynotes from MicroStrategy A/NZ GM, Ryan Blackwood and Tim Mole, BI Manager, Xero NZ.
