March 13, 2017We are busy working on the Netsuite.com functionality at the HUB of Analytics Education. All of the existing data is uploaded and audited. We included other expenses in our Netsuite Account and this is reflected in the updated June 2016 Financial Statements. We expect Netsuite.com functionality to be ready by Summer 2017. Student videos on how to use Netsuite.com are in pre-production. This includes how to move data into a Business Intelligence Tool using Online Database Connectivity (ODBC). We posted Tableau’s White Paper on our site, Top 10 Big Data Trends for 2017.
We would like to share some of the response from faculty and students about their experience utilizing the material on the HUB of Analytics of Education.
-Professor Jennifer Johnson, University of Texas – Dallas
“I used the Inventory tie-out case for my Masters course, ‘Data Analytics for Accountants’. I was very happy to see the cases provided on HUB as they relate to what is being done in the Accounting profession. I know the materials are used by faculty around the country and around the world. Your efforts are greatly appreciated!”
-Professor Lorrie Metzger, University at Buffalo
“In speaking with my manager, she mentioned one element that made me stand out in the interview was my experience working with Tableau and making sense of such large volumes of data. She and others that I interviewed were impressed to see a college student engaged with such a relevant tool at such a young age, and I believe that I owe a fair amount of my success in securing the job offer to this opportunity to work with the HUB of Analytics Education on the Bibitor LLC cases.”
-Matt Atherton (D’Amore-McKim School of Business, 2016), Financial Planning Analyst, Alaska Airlines
