Project Description

Summary

Sustainability Victoria partnered with Object Consulting to migrate the ResourceSmart Schools system from its original platform to a new hosting environment as part of their digital transformation objectives. Following the successful migration, Object has assumed ongoing responsibility for the support and maintenance of the system as well as all development requirements. Object continues to work with Sustainability Victoria to enhance the functionality of the ResourceSmart Schools Program, through ongoing development to improve the value of the program to schools, and to position the system for long term growth. It was crucial that support was highly flexible and incorporated rapid response times to service requests. Following the launch, Object developed a customised reporting dashboard for Sustainability Victoria to draw a wide variety of new data insights from the system.

Challenge

Resource Smart Schools helps Victorian schools save over $20 million

ResourceSmart Schools is a Victorian Government program, managed by Sustainability Victoria, that assists schools to embed
sustainability in everything they do. Since 2008 more than 1300 Victorian schools have participated, collectively saving over $20 million, and avoiding over 60,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases. Sustainability Victoria engaged Object Consulting to migrate the ResourceSmart Schools system from its original platform to a new hosting environment as part of their infrastructure streamlining. Following the system migration, Object has assumed responsibility for the ongoing support and maintenance of the new system and ongoing development.

Solution

The Object team migrated the ResourceSmart Schools system from its original platform to a new hosting environment as part of their infrastructure streamlining. Following the system migration, Object has assumed responsibility for the ongoing support and maintenance of the new system and ongoing development. It was crucial that support was highly flexible and incorporated rapid response times to service requests. The new reporting dashboards provide insight into the ResourceSmart Schools program and will enable Sustainability Victoria to directly align the needs of schools and to optimise its practices for school staff, students and the wider community. Object continues to work with Sustainability Victoria to enhance the functionality of the ResourceSmart Schools Program, through ongoing development to improve the value of the program to schools, and to position the system for long term growth.

Results

Object achieved a smooth migration to the new Microsoft Azure environment with minimal disruption to participating schools. This has allowed the program to continue without interruption throughout 2017 and into 2018. The development of the reporting module has enabled Sustainability Victoria to look at the program in new ways and consider policy decisions driven by access to data that was previously unavailable to stakeholders. Object continues to work with Sustainability Victoria to enhance the functionality of the ResourceSmart Schools Program, through ongoing development to improve the value of the program to schools, and to position the system for long term growth.
