INDEX Consultants provided the services of a project assurance advisor working on an enhancement project for improvement of the National Health and Medical Research Council’s (NHMRC) ability to report on outputs and outcomes of research. Our consultant oversaw the design and implementation of a new cloud-based data warehouse and self-service business intelligence visualisation tools. He provided governance oversight, monitoring of deliverable artefacts against the contract as well as project assurance from the technical, user, and business perspectives. The successful implementation of the business solution allowed the ageing data warehouse system to be decommissioned and also provided NHMRC with the capability to perform enhanced data analytics and modelling using structured and unstructured data.
With vast experience in IT consulting/professional services, solution delivery, program/project management and in client and stakeholder relationship management, INDEX’s strategic consultant provided all of these services over a period of 17 months. Our consultant then took a break to complete his MBA and upon his return, NHMRC once again reached out to INDEX for another tranche of consulting. With extensive experience in Business Intelligence and Data Warehouse environments, on this occasion our consultant has been tasked with managing a program of initiatives including a project to integrate data from the new grants management systems into the data warehouse for visualisation, analytics and modelling purposes.
