Microsoft powers NUS’ big data journey with SQL Server 2012

Microsoft has today announced the successful deployment of SQL Server 2012 with the National University of Singapore (NUS), a leading global university in Asia. The University has chosen SQL Server 2012 for its combination of power features, cloud readiness and ease-of-use in creating business insights from large amount of data.

“Organizations such as NUS are making the leap forward in embracing big data,” said John Fernandes, Chief Marketing & Operations Officer, Microsoft Singapore. “Microsoft’s rich set of information tools can help organizations report, analyze and predict insights from all types of data, giving them a competitive edge in a new world where consumer expectations are ever growing, while pressures to constantly reduce operational expenditures is real.”

Completed in December 2012, this big data deployment has already enabled NUS to capture real-time analytics to improve the user experience of its online learning management system, Integrated Virtual Learning Environment (IVLE).
