Universities exist in an internationally competitive environment, and whilst the goal is not to increase profit, they have to increase the efficiency of operations and maximise the resources in an ever-changing landscape. The phrase “data is the new oil” is well accepted, but in the complexity of a modern university, such as the University of Queensland (UQ), it is no longer feasible to “speculate where to drill” for data. The talk will discuss how UQ stood up its central data lake using AWS Professional Services consultancy to achieve rapid deployment and how this is serving as a foundation for many new initiatives.
Speaker: David Stockdale, Deputy Director Information Technology Services, University of Queensland
