ZogoTech
ZogoTech helps schools make better-informed decisions through data warehousing. In a college or university with Institutional Intelligence, everyone in the institution is making decisions based on data instead of hunches. The idea of a "culture of evidence" permeates every facet of the institution. ZogoTech continues to help colleges and universities reach that ideal through our Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence solutions. Using ZogoTech’s Estudias software, institutional researchers and administrators can quickly "slice and dice" data, play "what-if" scenarios, perform longitudinal cohort tracking, and create ad-hoc reports. Estudias goes beyond data warehousing by consolidating information silos and giving researchers access to group-specific metrics to link student services to learning outcomes. Users can access the data through many analytical tools such as SAS, SPSS, and Microsoft Excel.
