Sliced Tech selected to implement new Defence student management system
27 February 2020
Canberra-based information technology company, Sliced Tech, has been selected to implement Defence’s new enterprise student management system.
This follows the October 2019 announcement that Brisbane-based TechnologyOne’s EducationOne software platform will be used as Defence’s student management system. Sliced Tech will implement and sustain this system over the next three years.
Commander Australian Defence College, Major General Mick Ryan AM said the new software platform represents a significant modernisation of Defence’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,” Major General Ryan said.
“The new platform will enable us to streamline student administration and better track the qualifications attained by our people throughout their Defence career.
“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.”
The new student management system platform will be hosted on a secure cloud capability.
“Using this secure cloud platform provides us with the security, scalability and flexibility required to modernise and further develop the Defence learning environment,” Major General Ryan said.
Use of the new student management system will commence at the Australian Defence College, Australian Defence Force Academy and Royal Military College ‑ Duntroon from April 2020.
It will be rolled out to all 115 Defence Learning Centres Australia-wide over the next two years.
