Tribal ties up deal with universities on education reporting requirements

Sixteen Australian universities and higher education providers have deployed a solution from global education software and services provider Tribal Group to enable them to meet new higher education statutory reporting requirements.

The universities will deploy Tribal Submissions as they move to meet the new reporting requirement stemming from the Australian Government Transforming the Collection of Student Information (TCSI) project - a joint initiative between the Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE) and Services Australia.

Tribal says the new reporting requirements will transform how student information is collected to build a better solution that benefits both Australian education providers and students.

Under the deal, Tribal Submissions will deliver critical student data directly into the Federal Government’s TCSI B2G API suite through an intuitive user interface to reduce risk and streamline submissions.

“Now live in production and being regularly updated to ensure compliance with Government TCSI reporting requirements, Tribal Submissions will ensure readiness for TCSI go-live for early adoption in December 2020,” says Tribal Group.

“The solution has the flexibility to adapt to future government requirements and will help providers by fully automating approval and enabling the curation and modification of single or bulk records in an easy-to-use intuitive interface, to optimise TCSI returns.”

Peter Croft, Managing Director, APAC Tribal Group, says “We are very pleased to see the uptake of our TCSI solution by each of our customers in the higher education space, including providers that use Callista and SITS:Vision Student Management Systems.

“This is a significant milestone for Tribal globally and is the first core Student Management System Module to be deployed on our next generation platform, Tribal Edge. It’s a testament to the solution that our product and development teams have built that our entire higher education customer base has adopted Tribal Submissions as their TCSI Solution.

“It’s modular by design and can work with any student information system, creates genuine efficiencies and will reduce ongoing TCSI compliance costs for tertiary education providers, is adaptable and agile, and provides much more functionality than an API. We look forward to working with all these institutions throughout readiness, implementation and testing phases.”

Tribal says it is supporting early adopters with a production ready TCSI solution in December 2020 with a number of institutions due to go live in 2021 as per TCSI timeframes, including:

  • Avondale University College
  • Batchelor Institute
  • Charles Darwin University
  • Deakin University
  • Edith Cowan University
  • Monash University
  • Murdoch University
  • University of Canberra
  • University of New England
  • The University of Sydney
  • The University of Western Australia
  • Western Sydney University
  • Victoria University

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
