Access to market-relevant and actionable data is critical to our institutional planning and decision making giving us a competitive advantage, says Raymond Kennelly, SVP Lewis University.

Public Insight, an analytics platform that syndicates public and licensed private data and transforms it into actionable insights, announces the launch of the first self-service data analysis offering, called Interactives, for the Higher Education market.

Interactives include blended, disparate data from leading education and economic data sources, such as: IPEDS, Federal Student Aid, College Scorecard, U.S. Department of Education, and Bureau of Labor Statistics. Microsoft® Power BI software is utilized to create easy-to-use, manipulate, understand and share graphic visualizations of data analysis hosted in the cloud and accessible at any time.

Within seconds users can see comparisons of data and benchmark against peer institutions, and understand growth trends and other key insights to help drive strategic planning and assessment. The higher education analysis includes data from more than 8,000 postsecondary institutions and 6 billion data points.

"Access to market-relevant and actionable data is critical to our institutional planning and decision making. Public Insight, through the Power BI software, allows me to quickly and easily harness the power of key data from my desktop giving us a competitive advantage," according to Ray Kennelly, Senior Vice President for Enrollment Management, Marketing, and Planning at Lewis University.

The Interactives Library is purchased as a monthly or annual subscription and includes the following higher education analysis as well as future releases:

  •     Degree-to-Jobs (program planning and analysis)
  •     Staffing and Compensation
  •     Enrollment Suite (diversity, out of state, retention)
  •     Student Debt (debt levels, repayment and default rates)
  •     Student Earnings
  •     Aided Student Demographics
  •     Distance Education
  •     Business Patterns (industry and hiring trends)

Public Insight will demonstrate its Interactive self-service analysis platform at the 57th Association for Institutional Researchers (AIR) Annual Forum, held May 30-June 2, 2017 in Washington, D.C. This conference is the world’s largest gathering of higher education professionals in institutional research, effectiveness, assessment, planning and related fields.

“Interactives enable anyone to easily perform repeatable complex analysis within seconds using stunning visualizations to gain actionable insights,” explains Dan Quigg, Public Insight chief executive officer. “It would typically take weeks to create a single report analyzing this data,” adds Quigg.
