Key Questions Our Data Helps You Answer
Who are my technology peers?
"Our university hospital adds a lot of complexity to our IT structure. It really helps to learn about how others manage this complexity. The Analytics Services Portal helped me to identify and connect with other, similarly resourced institutions with a hospital."
— CIO at a private research institution
How do my resources compare?
"We were challenged to communicate the impact of growth on limited resources. We used EDUCAUSE data to compare our IT spend to spending at peer institutions with similar service portfolios."
— CFO at a medium-sized private research university
What technology solutions are available?
"Before selecting a new BI/Reporting tool, I was able to use the Analytics Services Portal to identify schools of a similar size who were using the solutions we were considering. Being able to reach out to similar schools and ask them about their lessons learned made all the difference in our selection process."
— IT director at a large community college
What are my students experiencing?
"We were hearing that some students didn’t have access to reliable technology. We used the EDUCAUSE student survey to identify the challenges our students were experiencing so that we could develop strategies to address them."
— Center for Teaching and Learning Director, mid-sized master's institution
