Keys to Successful Analytics

Fueled by our experience in both the private sector and university settings, we've attributed our success to several principles:

Know your clients.

We know higher education. Our company began as part of a University initiative, and most of our team worked in higher education prior to joining. We understand the unique challenges institutions face, and have direct experience helping overcome them.

Transparency and openness.

When we started out we didn’t want a black box and we assumed the market doesn’t either. We believe in a flexible model and an extensible platform to complement and extend your existing investments.

Strive for high value analyses. 

Enable your talent to focus on the work they love and leave the rest to us. Show them the art of the possible.

Focus on the fundamentals.

There is a clear order of operations to build an analytics capability and make an impact at an institution. It's hard to skip steps on this journey and succeed.

Eliminate blind spots.

Institutions need visibility into the connections between enrollment, student success and institutional financial data. Without it, there is too much information left in the periphery, allowing institutional blind spots to persist.

Technology, alone, isn't the answer.

Technology will never facilitate a cultural evolution. Technology will never combat institutional inertia. Technology will never build relationships across university departments. It’s the people who play the most critical role.

Don't Take Our Word For It

“Given our limited resources and expertise in analytics, HelioCampus was the only complete solution we could implement without the need to hire more staff. Their subscription model includes ongoing services to assist us along the way, and we can customize and extend the platform to meet our unique needs. The HelioCampus offering accelerated our analytics initiative, all at a total cost of ownership that is a fraction of what many other universities spend.”

Troy Donoway, CIO, Frostburg State University

“To efficiently and effectively lead an institution today, it is vital that data be readily accessible. Data informs virtually every aspect of strategic decision-making at UMUC and the context and commentary provided by HelioCampus are even more valuable than the cutting-edge tools and technology they use. Their expertise provides us with a new level of confidence as we navigate the highly competitive and constantly changing higher education marketplace."

Javier Miyares, President, University of Maryland University College

"After an extensive evaluation process, St. Edward's University selected HelioCampus based on their higher education experience and flexible, modern technology solution. The HelioCampus offering allows the university to address questions and planning across multiple divisions and functions with a single platform. The pairing of a extensible platform with data science services fit our needs and lets us focus on providing access to better information and self-service tools to our constituents."

Justin M. Sloan, VP for Institutional Effectiveness & Planning, Chief Data Officer, St. Edward's University
