    BI Executive Forum 2011 - Sydney Melbourne and Canberra

    • 0 Comments

    BI Executive Forum Banner

    Over the next three weeks, we’re co-hosting three ‘BI Executive Forum' events with Oakton in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra. It’s not specifically about Business Intelligence (BI) in Education, which means there will be opportunities to learn about the application of BI in various industries - and see how it applies to business intelligence in education. And possibly the best bit is that you don’t just hear about change from a technology perspective, but get to hear users talking about the business issues and the process changes that can be driven through better use of technology solutions. At the Sydney and Canberra event, this includes a speaker from the NSW Department of Education and Communities.

    As John Brand, Vice President of the CIO Group at Forrester Research, puts it:

      Business intelligence is rapidly moving out of the domain of specialist practitioners and into the hands of ordinary users. But simply providing a platform for self-service reporting is unlikely to deliver the desired results. Organisations must recognise and understand the driving forces behind BI becoming a ubiquitous service. Moreover, organisational performance will increasingly be driven by those that successfully institutionalise the process of business intelligence throughout their organisation.  

    The three BI Executive Forums each have a range of external speakers and an expert panel - including analysts and customers - with hosted interviews and Q&A session. John Brand and Mark Jones, Director of Filter Media, will moderate the panel, comprising senior corporate and government leaders. The panels change at each event, and include NSW Department of Education and Communities, Australian Taxation Office, Airservices Australia, Infigen Energy, Australian Leisure and Hospitality (ALH), Salta Properties and Reliance Petroleum.

    The interactive Q&A session will offer the opportunity to be part of a thought leadership conversation around how to:

    • Use Business Intelligence and Business Analytics to drive organisational performance: better align resources, save money and drive corporate growth and innovation.
    • Identify bad data and access, analyse and provide the insight needed to monetise data.
    • Extract data and insights from your ERP systems and pre-existing platform investments.

    The event is going to be of most value to senior leaders in universities, TAFEs and state education systems. It’s the kind of event that you’d expect to pay a steep entry fee for if it was run by a commercial conference company, but because of our sponsorship, this series is actually free to attend for executive leaders.

    Where are the IT jobs?

    • 2 Comments

    I just read an interesting article on the APC magazine website, about the hot skills required in 2012 for IT jobs. If you’re thinking about the skills that students will need as they enter employment, then it’s a great article to share with your students (and if you’re hoping to influence students to choose a computing subject as they make future course choices, it’s a cracking article to share!). According to Peter Noblet at Hayes IT recruitment, and the Clarius Skills Index reports, there’s high demand for IT candidates across the board, with a forecast shortage of IT workers nationwide:

     

    The strongest areas of demand are related to growing use of virtualisation and cloud computing in large enterprises, says Noblet, with many organisations looking to implement Exchange 2010 and moving to a virtual environment that’s creating demand for Exchange, VMware, and storage candidates.

    Microsoft applications like Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Exchange, SharePoint and the Lync unified-messaging platform figure strongly in recruiters’ activities due to the ongoing demand for in-house corporate messaging and collaboration platforms: “organisations are captivated by the perceived benefits and capabilities of SharePoint,” Noblet says.

    The market has, he adds, been equally voracious for lower-level skills like Java and .NET development, as well as higher-level business analyst and project management nous. And cloud computing expertise, particularly because the sector is relatively young, may prove to be exceptionally valuable to employers.

     

    It goes on to quote Michelle Downing at Dimension Data Learning Services, talking about the demand for skills training by employers, with a over half asking for training in Microsoft technical skills, compared to 3% needing VMware and 2% needing Citrix technical skills training. Business related skills needed by clients include ITIL, project management and business analysis.

    If I was in charge of IT courses in an education institution, I think I’d have this whole article projected  on a wall of every IT lab!

    How many Internet-connected devices do your students have at home?

    • 1 Comments

    Of course, we all know we’re living in a connected world, with ‘always on’ technology. Our students have never known a different one. My children live in a fairly high-tech household, but even I was shocked when I realised we’ve got 13 internet connected devices in our household - all squeezing data through a wireless router connected to a very thin Internet pipe. My kids have never experienced anything else. So this video, which gives you a trip across a day full of hidden devices, wouldn’t seem strange to them - it’s how they live.

    This was made by the Windows Embedded team, to show some of the places where Windows exists

    I know I’ve grown up in this world too, but it’s when you stop and think about the huge change that’s occurring that you realise that the ‘old ways’ of doing things are gone forever.

    What made me think about this was the fact that I was in a supermarket, whilst on holiday, that was selling packs of 3.5” floppy disks. Three things hit me: (1) I didn’t realise people still used floppy disks (2) How did I ever cope with storage media that could only store 1.44MB (3) For my kids, it was a museum exhibit, just like a dinosaur - they were extinct before they were born!

    Next week’s Briefing event in Melbourne for Universities - Business Intelligence for Finance

    • 1 Comments

    A reminder that we’re co-hosting a free ‘Business Intelligence in Universities’ event in Melbourne on the morning of Wednesday 12th October, at our Freshwater Place offices. It will be a focused roundtable event, where you’ll be able to learn from the experiences of other universities, as well as the speakers from Microsoft and CALUMO.

    Senior executives from both Finance and IT will benefit from attending the event.   It’s an opportunity to learn what your peers are doing, have achieved and the lessons learned.

    CALUMO, who are specialists in applying effective Business Intelligence at Higher Education Providers, will bring you up to date on trends and achievements in the Higher Ed sector, including

    • Top BI implementation lessons for Universities
    • Exposing Load Planning from out of the ‘black box’
    • Course profitability – is it a dirty word(s)?
    • Issues around Research Reporting and compliance
    • Making budgeting and forecasting useful to everyone involved
    • How to trust your data
    • How the value of the Finance & IT Teams were recognised in previous projects

    The Microsoft speakers will provide updates on the key capabilities and the next evolution of the MS offering, including;

    • The current version of MS SQL Server 2008 R2, and what’s coming in the next release, code named “Denali”
    • Data Mining to better understand trends and relationships (for Alumni donations, student planning, learning analytics)
    • Master Data Management and BI Symantec layer – Cleaning and managing data
    • Statistical forecasting and predictive analytics
    • Enhanced visualisation for information delivery.

    We will also discuss how Universities are managing Cost Reduction, obtaining extra value from existing licensing arrangements and delivering at lower cost to the Uni.

    The best value from the briefing will be achieved through having an attendee from both Finance and IT, so that both the user-perspective and the IT-services perspective can be discussed.

    If you’d like to get an invitation to this briefing, then drop an email to Mike Henegan at Calumo, who will provide full details for event, which is from 9:00AM to 11:00AM on Wednesday 12th October

    How safe is my cloud data? And what’s the USA Patriot Act?

    • 1 Comments

    Cloud iconEarlier in the year, I wrote a blog post titled “Is my data safe in the Cloud?”, where I explained that actually my personal data was safer in the cloud than it was on my own laptop - because there’s less chance of it disappearing (and through clever syncing using Windows Live Mesh, I ensured that I could have it both in the Cloud and on my laptop).

    But when people ask “Is my data safe in the Cloud?”, they can often be thinking about another aspect - whether it’s safe from other organisations looking at it.

    If you’re using a Microsoft Cloud-service, you can find out about our data security, privacy and compliance principles at the Microsoft Online Services Trust Centre.

    The other aspect people are concerned about is whether governments can go dipping into the data to find out things. Specifically, people have often asked about the US Patriot Act, which they’ve assumed gives the US government the right to dig into data. It definitely doesn’t provide for routine access to data stored up in the cloud. Jeff Bullwinkel, Microsoft’s Associate General Counsel and Director of Legal & Corporate Affairs in Australia, wrote a blog post recently about the US Patriot Act and what it does (and doesn’t allow). It’s worth reading if you’d like to understand some of the background to the impact, but I’ve pulled out one key quote from his post, relating to data access in criminal cases:

      …Australia and the United States, like most countries around the world, cooperate closely in law enforcement matters. Under a longstanding bilateral mutual legal assistance treaty providing for law enforcement cooperation between Australia and the United States, either government can gain access to data located within the territory of the other.  

    The point Jeff concludes with is that there are common misunderstandings and confusion about data protection in the Cloud, and that when you’re considering what you might be doing with data in the Cloud, you need to carefully pick out the genuine issues from the mass of confusing opinions (often with no basis in fact) that bounce around.

    Within education in Australia, there are more examples of Cloud-based services being used by staff and students. Sometimes it is individuals using them, and sometimes it’s big organisations. One of the things that often helps people to understand whether it is a possibility for their own projects is to do a side-by-side comparison of the data risk for their own system today, versus using a system in the cloud. That often leads to some surprising results!

    The Microsoft Cloud in Education - The Australian quotes Curtin University

    • 0 Comments

    The Australian carried an interesting story last week, that I have only just come across. It talks about the growth in the use of the Microsoft Cloud, and specifically the use of the Windows Azure Cloud computing system in Australia - quoting growth in customers ‘from a handful a year ago to several hundred’. What I liked about the article was that it specifically focused on the use of the Microsoft Cloud in education, quoting a researcher from Curtin University, who’s been using the Windows Azure cloud for genome sequencing.

    In the past, researchers would have needed access to a big bank of high performance supercomputers to do the kind of projects which can now be delivered using the Cloud. What that means is a complete reduction in capital costs, and an ability to switch computing power on and off - keeping costs under close control, whilst giving researchers the power of a massive datacentre.
