IBM Business Analytics solutions for Education

Successful Student Intervention

What is the best intervention plan for a student at-risk? For primary and secondary students, it could be identifying adverse patterns as they develop. For college students, it could be extra help from a teaching assistant, finding a new roommate, help with obtaining part-time employment, or more financial aid.

Using IBM Advanced Analytics, schools can build, implement and manage better interventions – whether academic, financial, health, emotional or other – that address each individual student's needs to keep at-risk students in school.

By monitoring student progress through Cognos Analytics dashboards and reporting, administrators can be sure that no student falls through the cracks.

Managing Budgets and Finance

In a climate of cost-cutting, competition for top students and staff, less public funding, and more stringent compliance requirements, education institutions must be able to define long-term growth plans while analyzing trends and scenarios to prepare for future excellence.

IBM makes it easy for educational institutions to quickly and confidently make budgeting and financial decisions. With IBM Cognos TM1, you can better manage budgets, lower costs and maximize efficiency in your people, systems, processes and facilities in order to optimize your finance and operations at every level of your organization.

Institutional Advancement for Higher Education

Colleges and universities are ever dependent on alumni and other donor contributions to fund specific programs. As government funding is cut, it becomes increasingly important to establish a strong alumni and corporate giving program.

How can I manage and predict donors for better institutional advancement? Predictive Analytics can help by showing how alumni and corporate donors contribute, when they are likely to contribute and what messages resonate. Colleges and universities can tailor their institutional advancement programs to maximize their donor base and thus maximize contributions.
