Client: A prestigious university in Australia
Industry type: Education
Number of students: Over 50,000
The university had disparate source systems for institutional data, leading to challenges in developing actionable insights. It wanted to build a modern data environment by integrating data from multiple data sources to enable analytics and relevant insights.
The university needed automated information analysis and analytical reporting capabilities through data warehousing and business intelligence technologies. One of the major intents was to analyze the corporate credit card data to understand the spending patterns of the staff for compliance to rules and regulations.
Wipro implemented an effective data management solution and learning analytics solution for the client leveraging Talend Cloud-based SaaS platform hosted on AWS. As part of the learning analytics solution, Cloudera was leveraged for Big Data along with Talend as data ingestion and transformation layer, and Tableau as a consumption layer.
Some of the use-cases developed for consumption of insights were:
The new modern data environment served as the backbone infrastructure for the university staff to enable spend analysis, student retention, contextual and demographic understanding of the student, and fine-tuning of the courses.
This was a large Talend Big Data real time implementation on the Talend Cloud in terms of scale and size. Enterprise data warehouse and dashboard enabled the university to have improved visibility of spends incurred through the corporate credit card. The modern data environment helped in providing a university-wide resource for storage, management and review. It also allowed the university to keep its intellectual property safe and usable.
