Oracle and education leaders discuss how technology helps deliver an end-to-end process that supports a successful lifecycle for students from the classroom to the boardroom.
Are today's college graduates ready to meet the demands of today's workforce? Do they have the right skills? What type of strategies should institutions look at to address this dilemma? Using technology can help to enable transformation and improve education productivity while maintaining a balance between vocational and critical-thinking education imperatives.

Optimizing student success encompasses all the actions, activities, policies, and practices that actively support student success at all stages of the student experience. But moving from the classroom to the boardroom isn’t always an easy transition for many students. Are graduates ready to enter the workforce? Do they have the right balance of role-specific expertise as well as problem-solving and critical-thinking skills? Hear from David Amsden, vice president of recruiting and talent acquisition at Cognizant—one of the IT consulting industry’s largest firms—speak on the value of student success solutions, both from the perspective of an education solutions provider, and as an employer of more than 160,000 IT professionals worldwide.
Student success is a term that is becoming as overused in education circles as terms like big data and cloud are overused across the information technology landscape. However, in Norris and Baer’s Educause paper Building Organizational Capacity for Analytics, “Optimizing student success is the ‘killer app’ for analytics in higher education...improving performance, productivity, and institutional effectiveness is the new gold standard for institutional leadership in the 21st century. Enhanced analytics is critical to both optimizing student success and achieving institutional effectiveness.” During this panel session, hear from education industry leaders on their journey towards true, enterprise-wide initiatives that help develop a full 360-degree view of the student and achieve measurable gains in student success.
