Faced with a number of barriers to data access and use, Villanova University knew that change was required in order to meet the data and analytics goals included in their updated strategic plan. Villanova had multiple source systems and tools, siloed data, no university wide data warehouse, and a focus on operational reporting. With the goal of developing a foundation for an improved data infrastructure, data governance and creating a culture of data-informed decision making, Villanova needed a plan and a partner. However, even once key issues were identified and a plan was in place, COVID would upend and delay progress on their initiative.
Join us to learn more about Villanova’s analytics journey and how they overcame both internal and external challenges. Dr. Trina Das, Assistant Vice Provost, Office of Decision Support and Data Integrity will share the impetus behind the analytics initiative, the five phases of their data strategy, the role of data governance and, finally, the implementation of their data strategy. If you are interested in learning why and how to get started on your own institutional analytics journey, this webinar is for you.
