      The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) is being recognized by an industry-leading tech magazine for obtaining valuable insights from their data using business intelligence (BI) and analytics tools. The MDE is among 10 organizations nationwide that are spotlighted in Computerworld's first-ever Best of BI Editor's Choice Awards. 
       
      The IT department at MDE is being lauded for its consolidation of data into user-friendly reports that end users -- administrators, teachers, parents and the public -- can easily access to find the data they need.

      According to a story in Computerworld today  “…whatever the goal, the 10 organizations spotlighted in Computerworld's first-ever Best of BI Editor's Choice Awards have learned how to get the valuable insights they need from their data using business intelligence and analytics tools.”

      And as the state’s top IT officer Commissioner Carolyn Parnell says, “It is efforts like these that confirm Minnesota’s role as a leader in innovations that benefit citizens and promote government efficiency.”

      Congratulations to the IT department at MDE for their fine work and for putting Minnesota’s best foot forward!
