Management Information Services
Clare Nicklin was instrumental in setting up an institution-wide MI steering group in her last role which contained the top managers for every department responsible for creating and using MI. As an advisor to and member of that group, she defined, documented and presented an institutional MI strategy, which was signed off by all members and cultivated a sense of data sponsorship and ownership. The strategy included long term plans for the data and software architectures of the institution's MI, including the complete overhaul of all the SAS legacy systems to consolidate multiple servers, operating systems and versions of SAS into a single, coherent architecture.
Clare Nicklin is adept at engaging with key stakeholders (business and technical) at all levels, and has much experience in the analysis of institutional data requirements, the documentation of key deliverables and architectures and the proactive marketing of data warehouses and BI systems to secure MI adoption. In the past, warehouse based applications have been demonstrated by using a series of proof of concept systems to present and prove the benefits and results. In her last role, Clare Nicklin planned, oversaw and managed the implementation and promotion of four data warehouses to live, including full BI layer, within three years.
