Pace University Selects iStrategy HigherEd Analytics for Reporting, Analytics and Data Warehousing Integrated with Their Banner ERP System

ANAHEIM, Calif., Oct. 14 -- EDUCAUSE 2010 (Booth #2047) -- iStrategy Solutions ("iStrategy"), the leading developer of higher education analytic reporting solutions, today announced Pace University (New York) has selected iStrategy HigherEd Analytics(TM) for self-service reporting and analytics, using data integrated from the university's SunGard Banner ERP system.

iStrategy HigherEd Analytics includes pre-built data models, metrics, reports, and dashboards that integrate out-of-the-box with Banner, PeopleSoft and Datatel ERP systems. As a result, iStrategy eliminates the technical complexities often encountered in a traditional data warehousing project. Institutions that choose iStrategy achieve timely, actionable reporting, dashboards and business intelligence for a fraction of the time and cost typically required by alternative solutions.

Ravi Ravishanker, CIO of Pace University, said, "iStrategy's pre-built Banner ERP integration gave our data warehousing initiative a significant head start compared with other solutions. We were also impressed by the depth and breadth of the iStrategy data warehouse, which includes extensive performance metrics, reports and dashboard views. iStrategy clearly understands the specific informational needs of higher education."

"We are rolling out iStrategy HigherEd Analytics to leaders and managers within Enrollment Management, Institutional Research and our Office of Student Assistance. They are eager to utilize the new reporting and analytic insights from iStrategy to more effectively recruit, retain and assist our students, and make data-informed strategic decisions that will expand the success of our students and our institution for the years ahead."

Ravishanker added, "An effective higher education data warehousing and analytics solution should empower university decision makers to work independently with information without relying on IT department assistance. We feel we have found that solution in iStrategy. iStrategy HigherEd Analytics will revolutionize how Pace University accesses, consumes and acts upon student information, and that is very exciting."

"With iStrategy HigherEd Analytics, our customers quickly reap the benefits of self-service reporting, analytics and data-driven decision-making without the high cost and time-consuming technical roadblocks so common with other data warehousing solutions," said Mark Max, CEO of iStrategy. "Our pre-built applications provide out-of-the box integration with Banner and other ERP systems, but more importantly, our data models are vetted by over 100 institutions and have been proven to help enable our customers improve institutional performance."
