The Australian Government is introducing a new data architecture for its data systems, with the aim of simplifying the delivery of government data, including access, storage and processing.
Highway Information and Navigation System (HINOS) – which is being rolled out in Melbourne – will use the same standard data model as the current HINOS infrastructure.
“HINOs will enable organisations to deliver high-quality and efficient services with the same data and infrastructure that they use today,” said Transport Minister Andrew Constance.
The HINOs are a key part of the Government’s plan to modernise Australia’s infrastructure, which will see the Commonwealth’s transport network, the rail network and inland waterways become more efficient, with more reliable services.
In April, the Government introduced a new national network of digital and hybrid infrastructure, with plans to deploy more than 200 million gigabytes of data over the next three years.
New technologies will be used to deliver the data-driven services that Australians expect, such as:Data analytics – the ability to use data to identify and improve data quality and efficiency.
