UNO Launches New Business Intelligence Program
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) has launched a new business intelligence program that provides a wealth of facts, figures and statistics that are useful to the campus community and the public. The UNO Performance INformation Gateway (PING) is the portal for accountability information, academic and department management indicators, reports, and analytics that support data-driven decision-making across the university.
PING currently features Key Performance Indicators (KPI) that incorporates measures from several different areas, including: resources, educating students, productivity, research enterprise, student success and student opportunity. The trend is displayed for each key performance indicator for the years 2004-2009.
A separate bar chart shows the most current level of performance for UNO (2010 or 2011, or both, based upon data availability) on each KPI. This allows examination of UNO’s current performance relative to its past performance. When available, the average is also displayed for 10 comparison institutions that are members of the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities (CUMU).
The 10 CUMU institutions include Cleveland State University; Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis; Oakland University; Portland State University; University of Texas at San Antonio; University of Arkansas at Little Rock; University of Missouri-Kansas City; University of North Carolina at Charlotte; and Wichita State University.
UNO is in phase one of implementing the new program, which also includes enrollment trend information and a new “student list” report. Additional dashboards, reports and analytics will be added to PING in the coming months. Key factors driving the development of these new reporting tools include the goal of growing UNO to 20,000 students by 2020, and the development of a new student enrollment management plan.
"Providing this information is incredibly important," said UNO Chancellor John Christensen. "These metrics will help guide the campus community in our efforts to continuously improve quality and add value to the student experience."
