Dianne Fodell (twitter @difodell) is helping to link thinking about analytics and service systems. She sent me these pointers:
The Academic Initiative BAO Portal (this is primary external site for faculty):
Analytic Zone (primarily Cognos Insights – a community site for users):
Also, since smarter cities and smarter universities are holistic service systems that deliver whole service…. Academic Initiative has real-world tools and educational materials to apply… and this could be relevant to creating a “whole new engineer” (twitter @bigbeacon)
This is of course very much conceptually related to design as well – and real-world-design challenges.
