Blue Consulting Group

Blue Consulting Group is focused on ensuring that teachers have the data quality and quantity to make the most informed instructional decisions possible. With billions of dollars spent on educational software every year, they feel it's important to harness that data and put it in the hands of teachers. By using Big Data, embedded BI, and AWS Reporting from Jaspersoft and Amazon, they believe schools can improve student outcomes and, ultimately, change lives.

Challenge

By nearly every measure, the education of our children is the most important way to improve quality of life for millions of Americans. The impact of the instruction a child receives in elementary and secondary school is immeasurable. Blue Consulting seeks to improve this by better data quality. While most K-12 school districts collect ample amounts of educational data, that data rarely flows to teachers in real-time.

Solution

Blue Consulting Group's Cloud application, powered by Jaspersoft, MongoDB and Amazon Redshift, collects data from the disjointed data systems in a school district, normalizes and organizes it, and then makes it available to those who truly affect student outcomes: classroom teachers. Blue Consulting Group's app was designed using the latest web technologies. No longer are K-12 institutions forced to wait on the sidelines for the latest in analytics and Big Data. With Jaspersoft and Amazon Redshift, dashboards are now not only incredibly easy to use but they are incredibly fast, even on large data volumes.

Results

Over 200 users across multiple school districts rely on the power, flexibility, and security of Blue Consulting's Cloud application for reporting and analytics of their school systems. Teachers and administrators now have powerful reporting software for information from Attendance & Discipline, Geographic Data Mapping, Standardized Testing, Third Party Learning Systems, and a variety of other measures. This information guides more informed decisions, educational approaches, and resource optimization for school districts.
