Augusoft on “Big Data” Panel Discussion – Upcoming WDI (AACC) Conference

Minneapolis, Minn. – January 18, 2016 – The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) hosts their annual Workforce Development Institute (WDI) to bring together higher education, workforce development, industry, and federal partners to share promising practices and new trends in workforce and economic development initiatives. This year the conference will be held in New Orleans, LA from January 20-23, 2016 at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside.

Augusoft’s Beth Moorhead, Director of Business Development and Marketing, will be on a panel with fellow industry colleagues discussing how labor market technical assistance providers are connecting with campuses across the country regarding issues surrounding reports, systems, and resources and their ability to be more easily navigable and customized to be integrated and used successfully. They will discuss what kinds of data you may need and want, how to make informed decisions about getting the right data, and how to use data effectively.
