ASU team receives emerging technologies award for analytics

October 18, 2016

ASU's University Technology Office's University Analytics and Data Services team has received The Data Warehousing Institute (TDWI) Best Practices Award for 2016 in Emerging Technologies and Methods for their work in self-service analytics.

Driven by rising demand for data and the desire to make data accessible across the university, the innovative team leveraged their use of the Microsoft BI Stack, among various other tools, to develop their new reporting environment:

Kristin Kennedy, director of businessintelligence, and Kate Giovacchini, senior business analyst, both from the University Analytics and Data Services team, accepted the award on behalf of Arizona State University at the October TDWI conference in San Diego, California. In addition to the prestige of being awarded a "Best Practices" plaque and being recognized at the conference keynote speech, the recipients also received complimentary registration to attend conference sessions on big data, advanced analytics and data strategy.

The Data Warehousing Institute is recognized as the industry touchstone for analytics and data management. Founded more than 20 years ago, they provide events, certifications, publications and industry research for data warehousing, business intelligence, big data and advanced analytics organizations around the world.
