University of Western Australia

Data Scientsists Pty Ltd empowered BCEES with data and technology that enables the study to use a virtual machine running on a federal research network supplied and maintained by the Australian Research Collaboration Services (ARCS). The virtual machine on the federal research network has increased the researchers ability to collaborate and provides a centralised repository for capturing research data.

BCEES also used Plone an open source content management system which allowed the study team to communicate effectively regarding meetings, issues and news despite the large geographical distances between investigators (Perth, Melbourne, Canada and Germany). In addition, all correspondence made via the content management system means it is automatically documented for verification and auditing purposes.
