Making Sense of Events – How to pay attention to who’s attending

Do you struggle to find meaning in your events and activity data?  Are you trying to track event impact without getting lost in a sea of RSVPs? Join Anthony R. Williams and Amanda Garvin-Adicoff as they discuss how they helped the Cal Aggie Alumni Association make sense of their event data and create a dashboard that provides accurate, timely, and actionable insights at a glance.

During this session, we will cover the customer’s impetus for requesting this project, what key indicators we decided to track, and why.  We will demo the Power BI dashboard we built on Ellucian Advance data, providing not only technical insights into how to build one of your own but also a recap of what we learned about our data from this project.

You’ll walk away from this session inspired to put your events data to work for you, with an understanding of how to structure your data to provide the most meaningful insights, and with the tools, you need to build your own events dashboard in Power BI.
