Organization: Ghent University (UGhent)
Location: Ghent, Belgium
Size: 41,000 students, 9,000 employees
Challenge: Insight into policy and quality of education, research and distribution of personnel budgets
“Our decision to go with Diver was based purely on our selection criteria,” says Philippe Depoorter, founder of the UGent Geïntegreerd Informatiesysteem (UGI – UGent Integrated Information Systems) team. His organization had a stringent set of requirements.
The platform had to be flexible enough and provide the capability to make adjustments quickly in case of a change to policy within the university. The software also had to be easily accessible to the end user, despite complete end-to-end integration of sources with the user interface. For a favorable cost of ownership it was also important that a small team could develop and maintain the system. UGent wants to gain knowledge as quickly as possible and take the lead in further development.
Ghent University (UGent) is a leading knowledge institution with more than 41,000 students and 9,000 employees. The organization has been using the Diver business intelligence platform from Dimensional Insight since 2015. The system supports education, research and valorization policy as well as personnel budget allocation.
