The Quad Cities: Making Shared Data a Reality
PHOENIX, AZ, March 29, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ — nFocus Solutions, a leading provider of performance management and outcome measurement solutions, published a case study to show community organizations how to utilize shared data systems to improve high school graduation rates. In partnership with nFocus Solutions, United Way of the Quad Cities Area set up a shared data system on the Community Solutions Data Warehouse to gather and track student information in order to be able to determine relationships between certain education indicators.
The case study, The Quad Cities: Making Shared Data a Reality, details the steps United Way and its partners took to set up the shared data system, input data, and obtain results. The case study has been written to provide a unique look at what it takes for an organization to implement a shared data system into its already-operating programs. With this study, nFocus Solutions provides guidance to other organizations that are interested in a similar system and hopes to inspire those organizations that are facing related challenges to keep pushing forward.
“We are proud to support the Quad Cities’ educational initiatives,” said Ananda Roberts, president of nFocus Solutions. “With this case study, we aim to show other communities that creating a shared data system is a partnership between communities and vendors that has tremendous potential.”
A shared data system like nFocus Solutions’ Community Solutions Data Warehouse allows administrators and educators to track specific educational indicators from kindergarten to graduation. Tracking data and discovering relationships among indicators aids in the creation of specialized programs for students in their early years of education in hopes of increasing the number of high school graduates.
In the words of Scott Crane, President of United Way of the Quad Cities Area, “By working steadily, starting slowly, building trust, and truly listening to our partners, we created a system with data-analysis capabilities far beyond what we had originally set out to do.”
Given the amount of time and patience it takes to create a shared data system, many communities may be discouraged. This case study demonstrates that it is the partnerships and trust created that make a shared data system like this work to the fullest.
