Banking software maker i-flex solutions has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Karnataka in India to build a Decision Support System (DSS), for the state's department of education. The DSS will help the department monitor the quality of elementary education in schools across the state.
Estimated to cost approximately INR One Crore, the DSS is being developed by i-flex's Center for Business Intelligence (CBI) in two phases. The first phase has just been completed and has helped the Karnataka State Quality Assessment Organization (KSQAO), a part of the Department of Education; analyse the quality of education of around 19 Lac children in 41,000 schools, in around 2100 clusters, in around 200 taluks in 32 districts of the State of Karnataka.
H. D. Kumaraswamy, the Chief Minister of Karnataka, launched in a different ceremony the 'Karnataka Schools towards Quality Education' program, and released the results of the analyses from the assessment of schools conducted using the DSS. i-flex will also work with the Policy Planning Unit and e-Governance unit of the Education Department, and provide Project Management Support to implement Information Analytics, Data Warehousing and Decision Support System.
