SAN FRANCISCO, March 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Jaspersoft, maker of the world's most widely used business intelligence (BI) software, today announced Illuminate Education Inc. has chosen Jaspersoft as its embedded reporting BI solution. As a leading web-based software and services provider in the K-12 space, Illuminate's solutions are designed to support practical and progressive information management needs at the county, district, site, classroom, parent, and student levels. By embedding Jaspersoft BI, more than 245 United States school districts, supporting over 30,000 educators can now streamline their K-12 educational programs with access to efficient reporting and analytics tools.
Today, there is an increasing emphasis on accountability and performance in schools. To meet the demand for measurable results and to better evaluate the effectiveness of education processes, teachers and administrators need to regularly assess their students. Student performance data, when reviewed in concert with other school information such as class schedules and class occupancy, is vital to school districts' operations.
"While many information management products are available for educators, most are disconnected. School districts want solutions that tie all their data together, and by embedding Jaspersoft BI into our applications, Illuminate is able to provide this service," says Mark Walls, Chief Operating Officer for Illuminate. "Teachers can log in and get reports designed specifically for their district's unique information needs. Providing this capability is a big differentiator for us -- none of our competitors can do it, but more importantly it helps schools maximize their operational processes. Jaspersoft has given us and our schools a tremendous competitive advantage."
When searching for a reporting solution, Illuminate sought a flexible approach to reporting — one that could be responsive to users and eliminate the need for custom-coding. Embedding Jaspersoft BI allows Illuminate to focus on its core capabilities and scale with their clients' evolving BI needs. Jaspersoft BI powers key reporting elements in Illuminate solutions including:
- Illuminate Student Information (ISI), which enables school districts to track students, demographics, class rosters, attendance, grades and transcripts, schedules, and other key data across all schools, district-wide;
- The Data and Assessment (DnA) solution, which gives educators access to all data in one place including state and local assessments, schedules, grades, attendance, discipline reports, and more; and
- The Illuminate Special Education (ISE) solution, which is an end-to-end system with information management requirements for Special Education efforts, helping teachers and administrators manage referrals, individual student education plans, special education services, providers and caseloads, Medicaid billing and many other functions.
"Jaspersoft is excited to work with Illuminate to equip schools across America with powerful and easy-to-use reporting tools," said Jim Bell, Chief Marketing Officer at Jaspersoft. "This is a great example of how our BI solutions can be seamlessly embedded into our customers' applications, delivering rich analytics with a robust set of self-service capabilities."
