Arizona Superintendents Partner with Forecast5

NAPERVILLE, Ill. (June 29, 2015) Forecast5 Analytics, Inc. and the Arizona Superintendents Association (ASA) are pleased to announce a partnership agreement to develop data analytics and business intelligence applications for Arizona K-12 schools. By joining with Forecast5, ASA becomes the 23rd organization from ten different states to join the Forecast5 Corporate Partner Program.

Forecast5 Analytics offers a suite of analytic applications that help school administrators make informed resource and budgetary decisions.  Forecast5 will be assembling a significant amount of Arizona school data within its business intelligence platform, 5Sight, allowing users to easily generate insights based on relevant benchmarks and peer groupings.

Arizona schools have already started operating with several Forecast5 applications.  To communicate and share data insights across the state and country, ASA launched its own group page on 5Share, Forecast5’s online social collaboration network.  Arizona districts are actively utilizing Forecast5's geospatial analytic tool 5Maps, providing users with new visual perspectives using geographic referenced data.  To build and simulate budget and forecasting projections, school administrators are engaging with Forecast5's newest tool, 5Cast.

“Partnering with Forecast5 is going to allow Arizona school districts to gain value across all areas of operations,” stated ASA Executive Director Dr. Debra Duvall. “The ability to collaborate and analyze data trends will improve our efficiencies and overall decision making. We are excited to utilize their tools to move our education system forward.”

Jeff Carew, Managing Director at Forecast5 commented on the partnership, “Over the last year, we have had the opportunity to work with a number of Arizona superintendents and their feedback has been consistent.  They want and need analytic systems to measure and enhance organizational performance.  Our co-development process and our partnership with ASA ensures that these tools can be tailored specifically for Arizona school leaders.”
