Data challenges in the education industry

School goes from Kindergarten to University and every year teachers have difficulties about evaluating the new students that arrive in their classrooms. It happens because they have no idea who that person is and how were their grades in the past years. Does it sound familiar?

It is a challenge the whole education system faces all over the world, not having a data driven institution that helps their educators to truly know their students, so they can not develop effective learning strategies for each problem students usually face. Moreover, counselor and principals do not know what really goes on in the classroom.

Problems when using different solutions

Many schools choose to use educational systems which can not be customized or shared among the school departments, so every information you need to obtain must be asked to someone and be given within some days to the student or his parents.

Not to mention the lack of a data warehouse technology to store all the grades, missed classes or any other school activities done by students. When a student graduates, his files will not be checked. If the system goes down or become corrupted by some reason, school will lose all the data about its students.

How SlicingDice empower the education industry

SlicingDice makes sure everyone can have access to the school's data. We do this by offering fine-grained data warehouse access control. Individual custom database keys are used by different users to access the same data warehouse, but seeing different content.
