In a statement, the department said it had selected Brisbane-based Technology One's EducationOne software for the student management system back in October 2019.
Australian Defence College commander Major-General Mick Ryan said the new software platform represented a significant modernisation of the department's student management system.
“The EducationOne platform will provide a single, Defence-wide integrated system, replacing more than 50 separate databases, spreadsheets and other software programs,” Ryan said.
“Information technology systems are a crucial enabler for Defence, and this new system demonstrates our commitment to making the Defence learning environment more continuous, accessible and adaptive.”
Sliced Tech is one of six companies that have been certified to Protected cloud level, the others being Amazon, Dimension Data, Macquarie Government, Microsoft and Vault.
This certification enables the hosting of top-secret Australian Government data.
“Using this secure cloud platform provides us with the security, scalability and flexibility required to modernise and further develop the Defence learning environment,” Ryan said.
The new student management system will be used at at the Australian Defence College, Australian Defence Force Academy and Royal Military College, in Duntroon from April 2020.
By 2022, it will be rolled out to all 115 Defence Learning Centres.
