Visual Analytics

​​​DMACC has used SAS Business Intelligence since 2005 for data mining and reporting in addition to the institution’s Ellucian Banner Student Information System. Data available through the system includes enrollment, student performance, scorecards and other data sources needed by faculty and staff to support decision making for DMACC.

In 2016, SAS Visual Analytics was added to the current system to provide self-service data access with various visual representations. These visualizations allow immediate comparisons over time and between departments to identify trends and best practices for faculty and administration.

SAS Visual Analytics is available to each DMACC employee and is available 24-7. Ongoing training and needs analysis is available and drives developments to meet user needs. Our goal is to support decisions made at all levels of the institution with timely, accurate data and information.
