“Yellowfin combines a very sophisticated IT architecture with highly intuitive visualizations to break-down departmentalized information stores and make widespread independent data analysis a reality,” said Dr. Scholl. “With Yellowfin, it’s easy for large numbers of users, with a variety of technical skills, to quickly access data through a uniform interface, via the device of their choice, no matter their location.”

Senior Business Manager for the Executive Department of Strategy and Controlling at University of Konstanz, Michaela Potthast, said that Yellowfin would help the university to better utilize its data for strategic planning.

“Higher education is becoming increasingly competitive, furthering the need to actively recruit the best students, attract more funding and stretch budgets,” said Potthast. “Yellowfin is helping the University of Konstanz achieve an important competitive edge, enabling it to understand and meet demands more efficiently and effectively, and improve the quality and timeliness of data reported to the University Executive, University Council and committees, as well as funding and rankings bodies.”

Potthast said that Yellowfin would help the university to gain insights in its key performance indicators in teaching and research and to measure and improve its performance against the highest international standards including rankings reports, such as for the German government’s Excellence Initiative and the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

Speaking about the newly formed partnership, Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie, said that attracting the University of Konstanz as a client demonstrated Yellowfin’s continued commitment to providing highly consumable analytics to education providers.

“Yellowfin has developed a reputation for BI excellence within the education industry we understand the data related challenges, and offer a BI solution capable of addressing the multifaceted reporting requirements of individual education institutions. We look forward to assisting the University of Konstanz to improve its business and academic performance, and the experience of its students.”
