Developed and delivered in strategic partnership with Nuventive®, Ellucian Perform is an easy, intuitive, first-to-market solution that provides executives a real-time, institution-wide view of KPI’s and objectives across all campuses, departments, and systems.  It now works with Evisions Argos along with other common reporting tools used on campuses today like SAP Business Objects, IBM Cognos, and Microsoft Excel.

“Texas Tech University is enthusiastic about the Ellucian partnership with Microsoft to leverage the O365/SharePoint platform to enhance the Ellucian Perform product, and looks forward to the results of this key strategic partner alliance,” said Katherine A. Austin, Ph.D., Assistant Vice President, TTU Office of the CIO.

Ellucian Perform uniquely eliminates the gap between information and action by providing a platform tailored for institutional leaders, which aggregates any data from any source and binds it into any institutional plan or objectives while making that available and in understandable context for every staff member.

“There’s a rising demand among institutional leaders to leverage data analytics to inform institutional decision making with an eye on student success.   Colleges and universities around the globe are wrestling with this challenge and are seeking tools that enable them to prioritize, measure, track and report on progress against key performance indicators directly tied to the institutions’ goals,” said Anthony Salcito, Vice President of Worldwide Education at Microsoft. “We’re proud to partner with Ellucian on this solution, furthering our mutual commitment to supporting individual and institutional performance.”
