Data Futures: Alpha

In the first quarter of 2018, we are planning to start piloting and provide proof of concept prototypes of the submission and collection solution.

This will be followed later in the year by the data specification and governance solution, and the data dissemination solution pilots and in the second half of 2018 a pilot of the complete solution.

Alpha will therefore not run continuously throughout the academic year 2017/18 and is designed to provide proof of concept.

We are working with 14 HE providers during the Alpha phase; we have worked to ensure we have a representative mix of participants with consideration including institution type, software systems used and location.
