IRVINE, Calif., April 17, 2007 — e2e Analytix Inc. (http://www.e2eAnalytix.com), is announcing the successful completion of Long Beach City College´s Cognos Enrollment Management System.
Located in Long Beach, CA, Long Beach City College (LBCC) is the premier community college in the Southern California region. LBCC has two main campuses and many satellite sites.
LBCC system has nine schools that encompass 34 departments with over 4000 class combinations that students can choose to enroll.
Prior to partnering with e2e, planning and budgeting for enrollment management was handled entirely through a manual spreadsheet environment. This spreadsheet-based planning was extremely cumbersome. Lack of reporting, continuity, and
standard practices led to errors and made the Enrollment Management process long and arduous, resulting in low ownership and accountability. Enrollment Management budgeting and planning was taking up to 3 months to compile, consolidate and implement.
Our goal, states Dr. Linda Umbdenstock, Ph.D.,
Administrative Dean of Planning, was "to develop an Enrollment Management Solution using Cognos EPM applications and Cognos BI to provide LBCC with a tool to effectively manage enrollment management, planning and budgeting processes."
LBCC began working with e2e Analytix to begin the solution design for a web-based Enrollment Management Solution using Cognos Enterprise Planning software. Dan Galuppo, e2e´s
Director of Professional Services, states "that the use of Cognos´s EPM product for the Enrollment Management model that LBCC required was very unique. Our solution delivered real-time data collection, consolidation, workflow, and calculations that enabled users to make better and quicker decisions."
"Our new system," states Dr. Umbdenstock, "provides flexible and powerful model development with the Cognos Analyst component and supports any business planning or customizing of the Enrollment Management model. The solution dramatically reduced the amount of time to process, consolidate and implement forecasts. It provided real-time
service cost and expense planning per semester."
"We are pleased to have transformed the way LBCC manages their enrollment process," commented Vik Torpunuri, CEO, e2e Analytix.
With years of Cognos solutions expertise, e2e Analytix offered just what LBCC was looking for, a true partner with depth and breadth for crafting a unique solution. "e2e Analytix was invaluable in helping us from planning, hardware configuration, EPM modeling, project management, training and documentation. We have been impressed with e2e
since the beginning and the result of their efforts is a system that our users and senior management are very proud of," concludes Dr. Umbdenstock.
