2022 has been a landmark year for Seer Data & Analytics. We have continued to build the community data access and sharing category, and helped many valued customers and partners achieve breakthroughs on their data journeys.
Just some of this year’s breakthroughs include:
Department of Premier & Cabinet, Tasmania
The first phase of the whole-of-government data sharing platform for Tasmania, is now live. This Australian-first project brings together data from multiple government departments to help State government and communities align with the Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy, and track impact.
The first release Data Snapshot, built on the Seer platform and embedded on the Wellbeing website, provides an overview of Tasmanian children and young people in their first 1,000 days.
The next phase of the project will see data shared to communities to track their own impact and progress against the Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy.
Department of Premier and Cabinet Tasmania’s Ant Deck, and Burnie Work’s Kylie Burgess joined Seer Data’s Kristi Mansfield for this year’s Spark Festival event where the work to date and future vision for the project was discussed in detail.
Logan Together, Queensland
Over 600 Logan residents, service providers, academics and funders registered to come together for Splash! to co-design the foundations of a collective plan to ensure every child in Logan has every opportunity to be the very best they can be.
Seer Data’s team have worked closely with Logan Together this year to help build the foundations of a Data Space to ensure the collective plan will be data-driven measurable, and worked in partnership to help deliver data solutions for Splash!.
The community of Logan is blazing a trail for other communities to follow, and their pioneering work was featured in an Australian Financial Review article. Logan Together’s Michelle Lucas, and Seer Data’s Kristi Mansfield hosted an online event on community-led data-driven transformation through the Logan lens, which was recorded and shared as an ongoing resource.
Perpetual NFP & Philanthropy
Perpetual released ‘Census 2021: Numbers that matter’ report, a strategic compendium for Australia’s for-purpose leaders, boards, and philanthropists, in partnership with Seer Data & Analytics. A range of data assets are available to explore on the Seer Data platform, including an interactive insights dashboard.
Drawing on Census data to provide powerful snapshots and insights, this strategic compendium tells a data story through the voices of community and real, on the ground, lived experience. Service providers, community backbone organisations, collective impact groups, NGO’s, large not-for-profits and all levels of government can use the compendium and accompanying data assets as an ongoing resource to inform their decision making and build out their own reports.
Perpetual also released their annual Australian Philanthropy Insights report which gives insight into the social, financial, health and mental health damage wrought by Covid, plus sector-wide impacts on funding, resources and workload.
The Ballarat Foundation
A pulse-check of social issues across Ballarat, the Vital Signs 2022 report and data platform has been launched.
A project of the Ballarat Foundation in partnership with Seer Data and Analytics, the Vital Signs project looked at local 2021 Census results, and more, to identify key problems and needs throughout the community.
Ballarat Foundation CEO Andrew Eales said the aim is to drive better outcomes in the areas of health, family violence, unemployment, housing affordability, homelessness, wages, alleged offending, community safety, and even volunteering.
“The platform is a living, breathing snapshot of our community, and it contains more than 100 insights,” he said.
Trans-Tasman Innovation and Growth Award
In what has been an astounding year, Seer Data & Analytics was recognised with a Trans-Tasman Innovation and Growth Award, which was presented to Seer Data Co-founders Adam and Kristi by both Australia and New Zealand’s Prime Ministers.
This award is recognition of the importance and momentum of the data sovereignty movement, and the transformational power of community-led, data driven decision-making. It is a reflection of the pioneering organisations Seer Data team are committed to being in service to and their tireless determination to improving lives and outcomes for all.
This award was proudly accepted on behalf of all of the incredible communities, backbone organisations, Not-for-profits and government bodies Seer Data has partnered with to effect postive systemic change.
