What is Self-Service Analytics?

Self-service analytics is an approach to data analysis that empowers district users to access, analyze, and visualize information without relying on IT teams. It democratizes data by providing easy-to-use tools and platforms that enable users to explore and understand trends, generate insights, and make data-informed decisions.The main goal of self-service analytics is to promote a data-driven culture within a district by making data accessible to all staff, regardless of their technical expertise. This approach helps reduce the time and resources spent on data analysis by IT teams and data experts, enabling them to focus on more strategic tasks.

How Innive Helps

Innive understands the importance of policies, people, processes, and technology working harmoniously together to create a successful self-service analytics framework. To become more self-sufficient with data and analytics, Innive works with your district leaders and staff to focus on four key activities: 

Self-Service Analytics Roadmap

Work with Innive to develop a comprehensive roadmap identifying new/improved technologies and processes required to support data management and analysis. We’ll help determine what supports are needed for delivering integrated data to district and school leaders while addressing all aspects of people, processes, and technology. The roadmap will answer many questions, including, but not limited to: What training is needed to improve data literacy? Do we need a data warehouse? How will we access the data?

Data Ingestion

We work with your IT staff on the process of collecting, importing, and processing data from various sources to make it available for integrated storage, analysis, and further processing. Based on your district’s infrastructure needs, we will help implement new or improved technologies such as data warehousing, data lakes, and more.
