This annual project will:

  • Introduce the latest patches and features to production as soon as possible 

  • Resolve any service degrading bugs in our current version  

  • Review provisioning and account management tools/options 

  • Provides an opportunity to optimise platform configuration in line with the outputs of the Reporting and Analytics Roadmap  

  • Demonstrate commitment to using QlikView and QlikSense to its full potential 

  • Maintain Skill base around Qlik software 

To migrate the University of Edinburgh IP Management Platform: Inteum along with the adopted processes from the Tech Transfer Team embedded within Edinburgh Innovations (EI).


The current platform is equipped with a web site called Inventor Portal used to engage with Academics who are in demand for IP disclosure and patenting. Therefore, the Inventor Portal is part of the project and has to be migrated/re-developed.


This is the right project

Our existing approach to student number planning and fee income forecasting is both piecemeal and not fit for purpose, yet this is an area of planning which is strategically critical to the university. The existing tool (diagonal tables) which is used centrally, is not much used in Colleges/Schools, and other strategic modelling is carried out in GaSP but not made generally available. A more sophisticated and integrated BI/MI approach would allow us the opportunity to model more flexibly (at either granular or high level), and provide customised outputs.
