Business Intelligence in Education

Harnessing the value of data analytics for schools is a game changer, particularly when your staff can access real-time insights via an intuitive and easy to use platform

Data in the education industry is collected at every touchpoint, from back office through to classrooms, by a variety of data-generating devices and systems.

As you’d expect, that means that there’s a whole lot of data being collected: years and years of data, from thousands of students, educators, and partners, across different locations and at every time of the day.

The existence of big data in the education industry is not unknown; the value, however, is often overlooked. While so much data is created and stored, only a very small portion of it is analysed.

Consider each stage of a typical class and gain an instant glimpse into the vast amount of data that likely already exists, accumulated over years.

Now it’s time to uncover how it can be assessed and interpreted to deliver real value and insight for your education business.

While they may have been slower to the uptake than other industries like finance or retail, the education industry is now unpacking the value of big data analytics, leveraging real-time analysis, cloud-powered solutions, and data sets that deliver true insight and actionable outcomes.

Benefits of business intelligence in education sector

Harnessing the value in the data for just a single student throughout their education lifecycle would produce some significant and hugely valuable outcomes.

Now, imagine what would be possible with the data inherent in an entire class of students.

Working with Syntagium, educators of any size can develop their own specialised tools, systems, and processes to help them make sense of data gathered daily over many years.

Uncover insights and develop systems based on your very own data from the past, to improve your future.

Do more with what you already have. Here are just some of the benefits you can uncover when you unleash the power of big data:

  • Streamline education delivery processes
  • Improve project management outcomes
  • Early identification of issues or sub-optimal outcomes
  • Identify, manage, and mitigate risk
  • Manage resources and educators in real time
  • Reduce waste
  • Improve site health and safety

Supporting every part of the education process

Syntagium works with organisations operating at each area of the education sector, from the planning stage through to operations.


Educators utilise big data to understand the performance of students and educators alike. This helps identify areas of improvement from a delivery perspective and ultimately shapes an efficient and effective outcome.


Access to real-time data on performance helps students keep up to date of their progress and identify challenges. This helps maintain solid grades and has a direct impact on overall student wellbeing.

Facility managers

Over time, as more and more data is collected, facility managers gain deeper insight when it comes to forecasting and planning resources. This knowledge leads to improved output, increased productivity, and reduced costs.
