BME Qlikview Higher Education User Group Event – Crowne Plaza Manchester City Centre 17 May 2013
25 institutions attended the 8th BME Qlikview HE user day. The event was hosted at the Crowne Plaza Manchester City Centre Hotel and was attended by around 50 delegates. The day was a great success with a pre-user-day dinner for the 24 attendees staying overnight. The next user day is scheduled for 29 November 2013. The feedback after the user day highlighted the following issues:
- The opportunity to network in a relaxed social environment was seen as a key benefit. This allowed attendees to share ideas around how other universities have implemented, rolled out and used Qlikview.
- Attendees were extremely keen to share development and knowledge around the use of common industry datasets, for example HESA and KIS data. The idea was raised that a joint task group should be setup to collaborate on developing shared applications.
- The advanced afternoon breakout sessions were again highly rated and these will continue going forward.
- There was a demand for the Advanced QlikView Training Workshop.
Key sessions were as follows:
|Qlikview benchmarking model – Unistats Key Information Set (KIS)||BME Solutions|
|Student data – applications / enrolments / progression||University of Salford|
|Development of Placement Tracking Application
Prototype Attendance Reporting Application
|University of East London|
|Student Applications Tracking (breakout 1)||University of Leeds|
|Qlikview licence pricing for Higher Education (breakout 1)||BME Solutions|
|Advanced – Alternate states, List Boxes as headers, interactive reports (breakout 2)||BME Solutions|
