Platform supports data-driven decision making

Blackboard Inc. today launched a business intelligence solution for higher education with the company's newest platform offering, Blackboard Analytics™. The platform is a suite of applications that helps administrators view progress against goals in real time. It maps to the most common data sources on campus, integrating with student information, human resources and financial systems.

The platform is also used to help campuses get the most out of student aid programs, better understand spending across the institution and inform fundraising and development efforts. The new platform is available to all institutions regardless of whether they already work with Blackboard.
