The Catholic Education Commission of Victoria (CECV) today announced that it has selected Infosys, a leader in consulting, technology, outsourcing and next generation services, as a strategic partner to design and implement a new cloud-based administration and technology platform.

The ‘school-administration-as-a-service’ platform will be hosted in Australia by Amazon Web Services (AWS). It is designed to help CECV improve management and reporting for nearly 500 primary and secondary Catholic schools representing 200,000 Victorian students.

A cloud-based model was selected to help CECV reduce IT infrastructure cost and maintenance effort, and to provide a ‘pay-as-you-go’ flexibility for the school system. This will help CECV to add new functionality and scale in the future, without significant up-front investment.

Highlights

• Currently, the 486 schools in the CECV system manage administration in a largely manual and decentralised fashion. The new platform will help standardise and automate activities such as financial reporting and records management, reducing administration time and improving accuracy and timeliness of reporting
• The initial implementation will establish the foundation technology and administration layer for CECV’s Integrated Catholic Online Network (ICON) platform, delivering school administration, IT infrastructure, systems integration and identity management functions. Future enhancements will add e-learning and business intelligence functionality
• Infosys will be responsible for establishing and managing the entire platform, including Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications as well as infrastructure, commonly known as Software as a Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), respectively
• The solution will meet or exceed Australian and Victorian standards for data security and privacy, including the ‘Whole of Victorian Government Security Management Framework’ as well as Victorian Information Privacy Act 2000 Information Privacy Principles

Quotes

Stephen Elder, Executive Director of Catholic Education in the Archdiocese of Melbourne
“This new platform will reduce high infrastructure costs and reduce manual reporting and administration. This will free staff up to focus on what matters most in schools educating the children in our care. This new cloud-based platform from Infosys will also create an important foundation for us to grow our digital capabilities in the future, such as increased inter-school collaboration for teachers and students, and self-service portals for parents.”

Jackie Korhonen, Senior Vice President and Country Head, Australia & New Zealand at Infosys
“We are seeing tremendous interest from clients in every sector from Australia’s largest corporations to government and educational enterprises to harness the cost, agility and efficiency advantages of moving to the cloud. Now that these services can be provided in a highly secure, domestically hosted environment, cloud has moved beyond ‘buzz’ to solving everyday business problems for organisations like CECV.”

Ed Lenta, Amazon Web Services Director, Australia
“We are pleased to be working with Infosys to bring the flexibility and agility of the AWS cloud to the 200,000 students attending institutions that form the Catholic Education Commission of Victoria. We are also delighted to be part of a visionary new project that seeks to transform the delivery of education within the Catholic schools sector in Victoria and to learn how cloud based solutions can improve teaching and learning outcomes for teachers, students, staff and parents.”
