Keynote Webinar Department of Education

The talk featured several co-presenters (in addition to Michael Laracy, Founder and President of Rapid Insight) who spoke to the benefits of self-service analytics at their institutions. The speakers included:

The presentation covered how data analytics evolved from a highly-specialized field into one accessible to organizations of all sizes and professionals of all backgrounds. It emphasized the importance and effectiveness of self-service analytics and highlighted successful implementation at the three partner institutions.

“We were pleased to present to the Department of Education alongside some of our most impressive partner institutions,” said Mike Laracy, Founder and President of Rapid Insight. “Our users continually find creative ways to put self-service analytics to work in improving outcomes and decision-making at their institutions. This presentation was a showcase of institutions successfully making full use of their data to support outcomes.”

This talk focused on a topic that is timely and urgent. Today’s employers expect data literacy from their employees, and self-service analytics tools enable professionals to be flexible and efficient when working with data. Additionally, as higher education institutions adjust to a remote work environment, the ability to access and apply data to enrollment, retention, and student success initiatives is critical to success.
