CAUDIT/ Microsoft Data Lake Initiative

The University of Western Australia, University of Canberra and Australian Catholic University, supported by CAUDIT and in partnership with Microsoft, successfully completed phase one of a Proof of Concept achieving the  provision of a data lake storing shared (anonymised) and private data sets which provided new and expediated insights into available institutional data.

The outcomes from the pilot were presented to members at the Spring Members meeting in October 2019.

Following the pilot, through a Microsoft Technical Centre (MTC) session, it was agreed that expanding the participating institutions utilising the same data sets would provide the scale leading to additional opportunity to derive insights from the combined data. CAUDIT will approach members seeking volunteers to be included in phase two of the pilot.
