Business Situation

The Colombian Institute for Educational Evaluation ICFES has very large databases since it collects data from all students in Colombia.

Given their corporate nature, the information they had stored was duplicated, without a correct structure and with numerous quality information problems. This caused many delays in the processes of control and information processing.

The ICFES spent a lot of time in the manual processing of information, making this process wasteful and exhausting for the work team.
