Recently, I interviewed three SAS customers to understand firsthand how each is using data visualization and analytics in education. In this education analytics series of blog posts, I’ll take you on a journey to learn how each of these customers are turning their data into insights to be a more data-informed and analytical organization.
On this journey you’ll hear how they’re using SAS, why they chose to partner with SAS, the impact it’s had on their users and their institutions, and the time savings and productively gains they realized. In addition, they will share some interesting insights they discovered and some best practices they learned along the way.
