SAS® gives Orange County Dept. of Education clear view of finance and operations
OCDE will be able to integrate and analyze data
Serving more than 500,000 students, California's Orange County Department of Education (OCDE) will use SAS® Business Intelligence and SAS Financial Management to improve budgeting, planning and forecasting for 28 school districts, four community college districts and four regional occupational programs. OCDE will be able to integrate and analyze financial, payroll, human resources, student and other data to better understand operations and costs.
Many disparate data sources have made it difficult for OCDE to get a clear view of operations in the past. "Historically, data living in silos has made it challenging to see the total picture," said Louis Mazzarini, OCDE Director of Information Technology. "SAS brings experience at breaking down those silos, and that is important for OCDE."
OCDE has broad responsibilities and requires technology that can capture and analyze all relevant data. With more than 1,400 full- and part-time employees, OCDE is also charged with providing cost-effective, centralized services. SAS Business Intelligence will integrate data from the districts and provide self-service reporting and analysis. Decision makers at the districts will spend less time looking for answers and more time driving strategic decisions. Using SAS Financial Management to consolidate planning and historical information on demand, OCDE will deliver the latest information to decision makers and regulatory agencies.
With more than 3,000 K-12 and higher education customers in more than 100 countries, and education specialists on six continents, SAS serves the education industry by delivering software solutions, strategic services and academic programs that spark innovation and expand educational opportunities.
