IBL News | New York

EAB announced the acquisition of data analytics technology provider Rapid Insight for an undisclosed amount.

The purchaser will incorporate Rapid Insight, along with its 200 customer schools, into its Edify data platform, which was recently launched to bring together data from disparate campus systems into a unified source of information. Currently, 80 institutions use EAB’s Edify platform, according to the company.

“The acquisition of Rapid Insight will add a suite of direct-to-user data capabilities to support decentralized innovation,” said Danielle Yardy from EAB.

Rapid Insight says that its graphical data exploration, manipulation, and visualization tools empower users on campus to dig into that data directly.

“By embedding data processes and custom analytics into their workflows, campus leaders can address emerging and shifting needs in the immediate term as they rely on a central data source,” elaborated Danielle Yardy.
