UMUC Plans to Create a Company to Help Colleges Harness Big Data - Ellen Wexler, Chronicle of Higher Ed

The new company will offer data-analysis technology and services to universities across the country, and the revenue will go toward the university’s endowment. The company, called HelioCampus, will provide two main services: the technology to combine and analyze a university’s data, as well as analysts to help administrators understand what the data mean.
