CHASS IT Team Finalist for "Best Practices in Business Intelligence" Award

By Pauline Moc, Student Intern of CHASS College Computing

The CHASS Information Technology (IT) team was a finalist for Computerworld's "Best Practices in Business Intelligence" award for their revolutionary student advising and appointment system. Awards were presented in Las Vegas at the Green Valley Ranch Resort on September 26th.

Computerworld hosts several awards ceremonies a year with the goal of honoring the world's influential IT community with the following programs: "Best Practices in Mobile & Wireless," "Best Practices in Infrastructure Management," "Best Practices in Storage," and "Best Practices in Business Intelligence."

The team, who consists of James Lin, CHASS chief technology officer; José Beruvides, CHASS student affairs manager; and Matthew Chu, Raymond Holguin, and Kelvin Mac, programmer analysts in the CHASS Dean's Office, was nominated because their student advising and appointment system tracks academic records and other aspects of a student's life as it relates to contacts with academic advisors. The system's intent is to improve student retention by presenting academic advisors with the means to better analyze factors that keep students from graduating.
