Faced with a small IT staff, a limited budget and a need to optimize its existing PeopleSoft ERP application and HEAT helpdesk platform, solving their data access problems could have been a daunting task for Coppin State University (CSU). Adding complexity, it needed a BI solution that would not take two or three years to implement. Finally it had to be easy-to-use with minimal training since it would be deployed to 200 users across the organization. CSU selected SQL Server and Windows Server 2000 as the best choice for moving forward. They also implemented Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 for in-depth data analysis, an integrated performance management application designed to help improve operational and financial performance across the organization.
