Sep 20, 2017

Potomac, MD

After a comprehensive procurement and evaluation process, College of Southern Nevada (CSN) this week awarded ASR a five-year contract to develop and maintain a Data Analytics Platform to support the college’s efforts to more accurately and efficiently utilize data in the decision making and planning processes. The platform will consolidate and manage data from a variety of internal and external sources while providing key internal stakeholders the ability to better manage all aspects of planning and operations at the college.

ASR will implement its Student Success Analytics (SSA) solution which provides the infrastructure, data models, reports, analytics, and visualizations to meet the college’s specific requirements. SSA is a flexible and extensible framework developed by ASR based on years of real-world application and experience with numerous institutions of higher education. SSA provides comparative, longitudinal analysis at consistent points in time in the areas of student recruiting, enrollment, retention, progression, success, completion, and delivery efficiency. Financial and Human Resource analysis is also available.

For this project with CSN, Student Success Analytics will be deployed on Amazon Web Services with the industry-leading business intelligence platform, SAP BusinessObjects.

ASR is pleased to welcome CSN as a client and looks forward to a productive and successful relationship together.
