LumenData for Higher Education

See us (virtually) at the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference, October 27–29. We’ll be at the Informatica virtual booth.


LumenData provides high quality planning, implementation, integration, and maintenance services for Informatica products, including creating a Higher Education Constituent MDM solution. We also co-created the Oracle Constituent Hub, which was deployed successfully at many institutions. Our knowledge of FERPA, Title IV processing, and other regulatory requirements makes us ideally suited to helping Higher Education institutions.


LumenData is dedicated to helping Higher Education institutions
maximize their data potential.

Digital Marketing Automation


Higher Education institutions are relying more on MDM solutions and marketing automation to establish and maintain meaningful relationships with students and alumni. Through MDM tools and marketing automation, LumenData is able to help institutions segment their constituents by student behavior, and serve and track personalized communications based on the behavior. Today’s MDM and marketing automation tools are able to integrate email, content marketing, social media marketing, and comprehensive analytics in order to perform a wide range of functions, including:


  • Definition, segmentation, scheduling, and tracking of marketing campaigns.
  • Automated workflows to reduce repetitive tasks associated with the marketing process.
  • Nurture students to enroll and advance in their lifecycle.
  • Manage email, SMS, and other social campaigns through deploying, tracking, and ROI assessment.
  • Lead scoring to identify high quality student candidates for optimal follow-up prioritization.
  • Provide campaign analytics and ROI calculations to attribute engagement and admissions by channel.



Data Governance and State‐of-the‐Art Data Quality Tools


Frequently, schools are unsure as to the extent of the challenge caused by poor data. LumenData offers an Initial Data Quality Assessment in which we sample data from your systems and create a comprehensive assessment of your data using industry-leading KPIs. We can assist you in establishing a Data Governance Center of Excellence using your own resources.


LumenData has deep expertise in implementing leading‐edge Data Quality tools, such as Informatica IDQ and others.
