Rewind 10 years ago and Copenhagen Business School was a modern educational organization running on an old-fashioned reporting strategy. With an ever-increasing demand from employees and external authorities for more data and greater insights, CBS knew the answer to better resource management was in BI.

Once CBS brought on Microsoft Dynamics NAV for data warehousing needs, TARGIT Decision Suite's business analytics for educational institutes was a natural choice to complete the stack.

"The price was reasonable and the solution very user friendly," recounts Business Development Manager, Camilla Schreiner Andersen.

The benefits of a BI solution designed to fit the needs of educational organizations were noticed immediately. “Previously, we spent a lot of time delivering data and it could take up to a week to get certain types of data," says Andersen. "Now we can do it continuously and save time. By gathering our data sources into a single data warehouse we have easy access to basic information and that makes it easier to create great management information and thereby support the decision making processes at CBS.”

Today, CBS has hundreds of TARGIT users, most of whom can be found booting up TARGIT Decision Suite on a daily basis.

“I can use TARGIT in analyses directly on my screen, and that saves me a lot of time and improves the quality of my work," says Andersen. "Previously, I had to insert it into Excel and it was a time-consuming process. TARGIT gives me and my colleagues a better work tool, and we can provide our management and colleagues faster and better than before.”
