To help create the National Education Evidence Base (NEEB), the Department of Education required a secure platform to integrate data from siloed sources.
Atturra Cloud & Applications delivered a secure Data Integration Platform to produce ‘data products’ and make these easily accessible, primarily via a managed Application Program Interface (API).
- The purpose of the NEEB is to offer a better understanding of the education system’s performance and its impact. This information will support better design and targeting of policy programs for Australians.
- NEEB will bring together data on all phases of education – early childhood, schooling, VET and higher education – to develop a nationally-consistent approach to understanding student pathways.
- The Department of Education required a secure platform to bring this lifelong learning information together for analysis. The Data Integration Platform was a key requirement for the success of the NEEB.
The solution uses data services to access data directly, integrate on request and modify based on a user’s security profile.
