Business Intelligence is a Special Interest Group of EUNIS focused on the application of Business Intelligence (BI) in European Higher Education Institutions (HEI).
BI SIG acts as a network where best and next practices for Higher Education BI and analytics are identified, cultivated and promoted. We do this through joint seminars, both virtual and physical, and through facilitating an online collaborative platform for members of BI SIG. Finally, we foster future BI and analytics projects joining institutions across Europe.
The overall goal of the Business Intelligence Special Interest Group at EUNIS is to act as a network of practitioners and researchers within the field of BI and analytics in European universities and Higher Education Institutions.
The network promotes a cooperative knowledge sharing environment for the development of innovative applications (e.g. predictive analytics or decision support, across all HE subject categories), and the exchange of ideas and experiences on BI in HE institutions such as success factors, technology and software.
As a starting point for further services, the core team initiated the first BI project to survey the occurrence and maturity of BI applications across European HEIs. To summarize, it aims for a continuously updated collection of maturity information, enabling participants to perform a self-assessment and benchmark of its BI maturity level against other HEI, both actually and over time. The results of the survey were presented at the BI Working Group Conference held on 6-7 March 2014 in Paris.
The following EUNIS BI workshop on Institutional Intelligence in Universities was held at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, on May 20th 2015. More information here.
The workshop Adding value to the University through BI and analytics aimed to gather all BI enthusiasts to meet up and share experiences related to BI and analytics in University governance and decision-making. This highly interactive workshop gave the opportunity to share own experiences and learn from others what they consider to be best practice and next practice for BI and analytics. Read more here.
EUNIS Learning & Teaching and the BI group ran a workshop on The A-Z of Learning Analytics, Manchester, UK, 7th November 2017. Read more information here.
