Education Data Hub

The Education Data Hub is higher education’s first Data Management Platform, providing an integration, governance, and analytics solution in one technology. Using a hub-and-spoke approach that incorporates internal and third-party data sources, the platform organizes data into the Quad framework, EAB’s proprietary higher education data model. With Quad, data is aligned by business purpose and available via a user-friendly interface. The Education Data Hub is a configurable and open platform that will grow with institutions as their needs evolve.
