Hitachi Consulting Helps YES Prep Public Schools Improve Performance With BI Tools and Techniques

Tuesday, August 25, 2009
Veteran educator Nella Garcia knows the best teachers understand their students, better than their subject matter.

Her excitement, she says, is due to the success she’s seen working hand in hand with Hitachi Consulting, the IT and service company of Hitachi Ltd., to implement the school’s new package of business intelligence processes and technologies. The program, called Navigation, is a system of dashboards and informational displays designed to help teachers share lesson plans, sample quizzes, tests and more.
