SAP SE (ADR)(NYSE:SAP) launched a new analytics data platform called SAPStudent Activity Hubon November 1st which was a joint partnership with the University Of Kentucky And The University Of California San Diego.
The SAP Student Activity Hub was designed to offer a deeper understanding of student behavior as well as success. The main reason why the new data solution was created was to help improve student achieve success while also achieving long-term goals such as making higher education more accessible, affordable, and relevant not only to students but also to the society.
“Now SAP is bringing the power of the SAP HANA® platform, SAP Analytics solutions and next-gen innovation to give institutions unprecedented insight into student activity,” stated Malcolm Woodfield, SAP’s global head of Research and Higher Education.
Woodfield stated that SAP has provided enterprise analytics to university businesses for a long time. The executive also pointed out that the company is expanding that platform so that it can include multiple types of information pertaining to the students and the correlation between their potential success and their activities.
Both the University of Kentucky and UC San Diego played a key part in the development of the Student Activity Hub. Vince Kellen, the CIO of UC San Diego described it as a critical solution towards dealing with real needs such as personalized learning, real-time analytics, and comprehensive learning. Kellen also described the opportunity to take advantage of the predictive analytics to come up with a comprehensive view of each student as well as to manage student engagement as major benefits of the solutions.
UC San Diego will use the data analytics from the Student Activity Hub to analyze and report student data collected from all campus sources. The idea is to come up with a real-time profile of every student and this information can be used to facilitate the success of each student on campus. The content used in the solution involves years of experiences in university analytics and this will make it easier for institutions to reach a data-driven future. Data used in the system is collected from various sources such as learning management systems (LMS) and student information systems (SIS).
