The University of North Texas System (UNTS) is big as higher education institutions (HEIs) go, but it is leveraging data to make itself nimble and responsive.
UNTS employs more than 10,000 people at its various campuses, with a combined enrollment of nearly 44,000 students, and an annual consolidated budget of $1.2 billion. It includes the University of North Texas in Denton (UNT), the University of North Texas Health Science Center (UNTHSC) in Fort Worth, and the University of North Texas at Dallas (UNTD). In all, it boasts five major teaching locations.

Worse, after three failed attempts to establish a data warehouse and analytics program, hope and trust were in short supply.
