Western Australia’s Curtin University has signed a three-year SaaS agreement with listed ICT services company TechnologyOne to digitally transform its administrative and student management processes for more than 56,000 students and 4000 staff.

TechnologyOne (ASX:TNE) says the new enterprise arrangement builds on an almost 30-year partnership, with the University signing on as the company’s first education customer in 1990 to co-develop its student management solution.

Curtin University deputy vice-chancellor Professor Jill Downie said the cloud-based platform provided the opportunity to respond quickly to innovative delivery options in a system underpinned by good governance, streamlined processes and the effective use of modern technology.

“Curtin University is a global university with campuses in Singapore, Malaysia, Dubai, Mauritius and Australia, and TechnologyOne’s solution enables our students and staff to complete their administrative tasks from wherever they are in the world,” Professor Downie said.

“The new platform will provide a compelling experience for students and staff at any time and from anywhere, with a particular focus on offering 24/7 access with the appropriate security, speed and reliability as well as streamlining entry pathways into the Curtin curriculum.”

Curtin University chief financial officer David Menarry said the technology offered benefits for staff also.

“The TechnologyOne Financials solution provides a great user experience for staff with capability on any device, anywhere and at any time,” he said.

TechnologyOne’s chief operating officer Stuart MacDonald said Curtin University could now transition its multi-faceted financials and student management functionality to the cloud.

“This new SaaS agreement is another key milestone in our longstanding partnership, and reinforces our value as a strategic vendor that adapts and evolves to new technologies, concepts and innovations,” he said.

TechnologyOne says it has signed a spate of new SaaS deals recently, including with New South Wales’ Macquarie University and South Australia’s Flinders University, along with an on time, on budget implementation of its Student Management SaaS solution at Victoria University.

“Our experience and engagement with the higher education market is unmatched in Australia, giving us in-depth knowledge and IP that translates to significant benefits for customers,” MacDonald said.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
