Business Analytics

Today’s higher-education institutions have more data than ever, more decisions to make, and the need to ensure productivity and continual mission focus. CAMS Enterprise Business Analytics delivers quick access to easy-to-understand information so you can achieve maximum efficiency and productivity in decision making – keeping your institution focused on delivering the ultimate student learning experience. With Business Analytics you can easily see the big picture and also drill down into the underlying details for just the level of granularity needed. And thanks to its seamless integration with CAMS Enterprise, you can achieve all this with the lowest total cost of ownership and highest return on investment of any academic ERP.


Dashboards and reporting go hand-in-hand to provide clear insight into an institution’s operations, but reporting is often a key challenge for institutions. With some systems, users confront the challenge of complex report-writing software and data spread across multiple databases, making it difficult to do their jobs. Users become heavily dependent on IT departments just to get information out of the system. In contrast, CAMS Enterprise excels at making end-user reporting easy. With point-and-click reporting simplicity, CAMS makes the right data available to the right people at the right time, empowering your staff and freeing-up your IT resources for more valuable contributions.
