Big Data and Business Analytics in tertiary education

Tuesday 1:30pm - 2:10pm, Keynote Presentation

The Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) is responsible for funding tertiary education in New Zealand, assisting our people to reach their full potential and contributing to the social and economic well-being of the country.

To achieve these objectives, TEC has embarked on a major information project to harness the significant information about individual students and achievement and much more, and convert and visualise this information into a usable form.

In this presentation Brendan Kelly (BK), TEC's Deputy CE - Information, will outline how and why the organisation kicked the project off, success to date, how the information being created is and will be used, and the plans for future collaboration with both the tertiary sector, but also the school sector and industry.
