"A team of ISBA students from UNH Paul College worked with us at Global Aquaculture Alliance to analyze and visualize product tonnage data within supply chains. The team created a Tableau dashboard to display the degree to which an importer’s certified aquaculture supply chain capacity is shared with competitors. This visualization was designed to convey how well or poorly the importer is meeting its own goals to fully endorse responsible aquaculture practices."

"In 2018 an ISBA Capstone Team from UNH Paul College worked with NEMO Equipment to create a single data storage point for the operations team to house data generated from various points of the business. Previously data storage was achieved using a blend of Microsoft Access, Excel, and cloud-based ad-hoc reporting. As we grew, this approach became time consuming and prone to error. The student team helped us source and install a server along with the software and licenses that laid the path for us direct data into a new framework. This project allowed us to streamline reporting performance using Microsoft SQL which has reduced the time it takes to run reports and limits opportunity for error."
