The approach includes leveraging the latest analytical techniques and technology to help governments realise the value of their own data, combine, data sets and apply these to the most pressing problems facing the sector. Results are used to inform new policies, prioritise spending, improve the efficiency of processes, and provide personalised information to citizens. We build analytical strategies to better structure and utilise data and to empower in-house data teams with innovating their analytic approaches. We also measure program outcomes and incorporate real-time evaluation into the design of new programs.

Working across various fields such as workplace safety, energy, education, Quantium Telstra supports policy teams with applying data-driven insights to inform strategic direction and program investments on an ongoing basis.

The Quantium Telstra team identifies what works and why via comprehensive outcome, process and economic evaluation , supporting government departments with outcome measurement, risk adjustment and feedback to service providers.

Through Quantium Telstra, we partner with leading organisations across the public sector on their greatest challenges and unlock transformational opportunities through data.

Some of our speciality areas include:

  • Social and community services – We harness data to create whole-of-person views and design smarter social policy and human services programs that improve human outcomes and unlock system efficiencies for government agencies and the communities they serve.
  • Education and industry – We help our clients make data driven decisions for better citizen education and employment outcomes by bringing together data, data ecosystems and advanced analytics to deploy the best practical solutions.
  • Disability services – Using a broad range of data (including linked, longitudinal data), we contribute to the policy evidence base about people with disability, helping improve the understanding, experiences and outcomes for these individuals and cohorts.
  • Public safety – Our practical approach to analytics sees us working regularly with policing agencies to implement data and analytics solutions to drive innovation and deliver tangible results. From crime pattern analysis and hotspot predictions (allowing for the strategic deployment of police resources) to identity resolution and network analysis (for consolidating information and identifying linkages between entities), our advanced analytics expertise enables us to assist the police with keeping the community safe.
  • Defence, Cyber and National Security – We use advanced analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence to support Defence and National Security Agencies with enhancing their capabilities. Our global commercial expertise enables us to support these agencies with customising and securing supply chains and critical infrastructure, improving intelligence targeting and driving positive health outcomes for serving members and veterans.
