1. Tell us about what Altis does and the specific assistance it offers its customers.
Altis focusses exclusively on the field of Data & Analytics and has done so since commencing in 1998. We’ve had a strong focus on the Higher Education sector since 2009 including being closely involved with AAIR every year since we first participated at the SIG Forum hosted by Griffith University in 2009. We don’t just turn up to an AAIR event when it suits us; we are there at every SIG and/or Annual Forum to stay up to date with what’s happening in the sector, as well as to meaningfully contribute by presenting with our university customers. Whether it’s Big (or little) Data, on-premise or in the cloud, our team of 90+ dedicated and highly-skilled staff provides services in all aspects of the data and analytics value chain, including: strategy/roadmap engagements, toolset selection, architecture, project management, solution delivery, AI/ML, training, knowledge/skills transfer, and Managed Services. Employing a proven combination of technical skill, expertise, leveraging experience, communication and listening, we deliver results that maximise business performance. Being vendor independent means that we don’t have a software agenda, rather, we are focussed on providing data and analytics solutions that deliver tangible business benefits for our customers. Our core ethos is ‘Connecting with Courage, Heart, and Insight’. In simple terms this means the firm commitment of our team to building lasting relationships with our clients and sharing the responsibility of delivering their outcomes.
