Susan's Story

Bridging the knowledge gap

Before we get into the details we’d like to share a story about Susan. Susan works in the area of government that has a direct interest in Australia’s tourism success.

Susan provides data and research to organisations who wish to invest in Australia’s tourism infrastructure. Susan also works on policies to make Australia’s tourism industry more investable.

A large part of Susan’s role is collecting data and information that supports those investment decisions. Unfortunately though the industry is moving incredibly fast and the sources of information and data ave growing exponentially.

It’s no longer sufficient to rely on the existing approaches to data collection. However Susan’s ability to access and use the new data sources is being hindered by technology, resource and skill availability.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with the new trends.

The challenge

Current approach:

  • Market research surveys
  • Public record data


  • Limited sector coverage
  • Limited regional markets
  • New forms of disruption
  • Limited sharing economy

Susan needs a better way of doing things,

Tourism analytics platform

After 12 months of effort and considerable support from Austrade, the BRII team and the tourism industry contributors we have developed the Hemisphere tourism analytics platform.

Hemisphere is a data analytics platform specifically designed for the tourism industry. It is privacy compliant, has smart data governance built in and has been preconfigured to provide a series of tourism specific metrics and benchmarks to end users in an easy to use interface. It contains a series of intuitive data visualisations, maps and interactive decision support tools.

There’s also a deep dive analytics functionality that gives an extremely smooth experience when analysing incredibly large datasets through a cloud-based interface.
