Report: The future of data-driven decision-making

How can we build on recent initiatives in areas like business intelligence and learning analytics to help the UK to move to a culture of data led decision-making in research and education – taking a leaf from the likes of Amazon and Google?

At Jisc we have just launched the second in our series of Horizon Scan reports, looking at the future of data-driven decision-making.

The report introduces the work that Jisc and partners including Hesa have undertaken in this area, and highlights several institutional success stories. It concludes by identifying “three big ideas” that we at Jisc believe would help the sector to move forward in taking a measured approach to achieving the full potential of the data that it holds.

I hope you find the report useful – and I have to stress that we view this as the beginning of a dialogue. We would love to hear your thoughts on this increasingly vital topic, so please do send us feed back – either directly to the authors, or via the #jiscfutures hashtag on social media.
