Our partnership enables our clients to catalog data and automate data quality so they can track student success, automate student outreach and manage sensitive financial aid data.

Infogix, a leading provider of data management tools, today announced a strategic partnership with Ruffalo Noel Levitz (RNL), a pioneer of higher education enrollment, student success and fundraising solutions.

The new partnership provides a best-in-class data governance solution for the higher education industry to address privacy, regulatory and operational data management needs.

Through the partnership, RNL and Infogix will help higher education institutions leverage the growing volume of data to optimize analytical insights and reduce time to market. Gartner predicts that “by 2023, at least three-quarters of traditional higher education institutions will have adopted a new primary business model that accounts for the majority of their revenue.” * The growing volume of data available brings new opportunities, as well as risk and challenges.

The strategic partnership brings together an in-depth understanding of student life cycle behavior, competitive pressures from other schools and corporate performance with data governance and analytics best practices, providing a deeper understanding, traceability and usage of available data assets.

“Our partnership enables our clients to catalog data and automate data quality so they can track student success, automate student outreach and manage sensitive financial aid data,” said Josh Robertson, senior vice president of product strategy at RNL.

Infogix’s data intelligence platform, Data3Sixty®, will provide RNL a best practice metadata model with recommended data quality validations and analytical models for different domain types that conform to industry and regulatory standards such as IPEDS, CEEB, HIPAA and PII. Prepackaged configurations also allow institutions to jump-start operationalizing strategic data projects more efficiently and cost-effectively.

“Leveraging RNL’s deep domain experience working with countless universities, colleges and nonprofits to help institutions get ahead of their data management challenges in an outcome-driven manner shows institutions accelerated business value and return on investment,” said Emily Washington, senior vice president of product management at Infogix.

Together, Infogix and RNL will present “Implementing a Governance-Driven Data Strategy: A Case Study,” at the Gartner Data and Analytics Summit in Orlando on Tuesday, March 19 at 10:30 a.m. ET. The session will highlight best practices on how to effectively implement data governance in line with changing business priorities. Infogix is also the premier sponsor of the event, which runs March 18-21.

Data and analytics leaders are fueling digital transformation, creating monetization opportunities, improving the customer experience and reshaping industries. The Gartner Data and Analytics Summit 2019 provides the tools to build on the fundamentals of data management, business intelligence (BI), and analytics; harness innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT); and accelerate the shift toward a data-driven culture to lead the way to better business outcomes.
