With data underpinning educational and research activities, it is essential for UON to develop robust, flexible and integrated data-related capabilities.

Key Initiatives

  1. Information Management
    We will implement enterprise-grade information management capabilities to capture, store, distribute and protect data. This will underpin all Teaching & Learning, Research and Corporate functions for all key systems across the University.
  2. Analytics Core
    The implementation of a new Enterprise Data Warehouse  and associated data visualisation technologies will enable the University to leverage the scalable, repeatable, live data to inform strategic decisions on scale, impact, innovation, and agility.
  3. Integration Services
    We will establish an application integration framework that enables real-time exchange of data between disparate UON and third-party systems to ensure all UON data sources are kept up-to-date, accurate, reliable and fit-for-purpose.
  4. Open Data
    To extend others’ reach to our data sources and to access local, state and federal government data resources, we will implement a framework and environment to provide open access to public and  de-identified data.

Key measures of success

  1. An integration framework and interface standards will be implemented.
  2. Support of repeatable and scalable analytics across various vertical business and product lines of the University
  3. An enterprise data warehouse and information management framework will be developed.
  4. Open data standards for access, utilisation and analytics will be implemented.
