Teach For All Tackles Educational Inequity with Birst’s BI Analytics Insight
Overview: Teach for All is a non-profit organization whose mission is to increase and accelerate the impact of independent social enterprises seeking to expand educational opportunities in their countries. To maximize learning and identify best practices across its network, Teach For All gathers and analyzes data from partners related to key metrics.
Problem: When Teach For All first launched its data-gathering initiative, it utilized time-consuming, manually-generated spreadsheets to combine and analyze the information supplied, but realized that it needed an analytics solution to automate the process.
Key Selection Criteria: As a non-profit focused on its core mission, Teach For All conserved resources by sharing office space with other organizations. As a result, a BI analytics solution requiring on-premise implementation was not an option, and affordability was a must. When considering various cloud-based solutions, they ruled out applications like Salesforce.com that would require the costly addition of a separate reporting tool.
Birst Results: In Birst, Teach For All discovered a comprehensive, cost-effective, and flexible analytics solution that could be deployed in the Cloud or on-premise as an appliance. Birst offers pixel-perfect operational reporting, self-service dashboards, data analytics, and the ability to easily run ad hoc queries.
