Case study: data-driven community transformation 

Building Australia’s first data sharing intermediary platform

Pre-Seer challenges

No option but to engage expensive consultants to produce needs-assessments and local context reports which are out of date from day one.

Seer solution:

Pre-Seer challenges

Organisations data queries forces through bottleneck of IT teams slowing iteration toward the ‘right questions’ and stifling innovation.

Seer solution:

Self-service data analytics with Open data aligned to frameworks for decision-making around needs for programs and services.

Data sharing infrastructure involving private Data Spaces that can connect to existing data sources, self-service data ingestion, and automated report generation.

Pre-Seer challenges

Data unavailable for decision-making by partners, inability to demonstrate the value of data sharing, and comply with Closing the Gap requirement to share data with First Nations Communities.

Seer solution:

Pre-Seer challenges

Inefficient and ineffectual use of funding. Focus on chasing money rather than effective distribution and planning of efforts for outcomes.

Seer solution:

Data sharing, collaboration, and storytelling. Local data sovereignty, and community transformation enabled through localised data sharing.

Shift from a funding-driven to community-driven decision-making enabled by true data democratisation.
