The C.K. Tedam-University of Technology and Applied Sciences (CKT-UTAS) in the Kassena-Nankana Municipality of the Upper East Region has secured a grant from the Government of the Spanish Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands to establish a state-of-the-art data warehouse on its campus.

The data warehouse will serve as a valuable resource for researchers, enabling them to access diverse and comprehensive data for their studies.

Speaking on A1 Radio, the Dean of the School of Computing and Information Sciences (SCIS) of CKT-UTAS, Professor Edward Y. Baagyere, explained that the initiative aligns with the university’s vision to contribute significantly to the development of solutions that can positively impact society.

Professor Baagyere also expressed his enthusiasm about the project, stating that the primary objective is to position CKT-UTAS as a focal point for data-driven innovation and research, particularly in the critical domains of health, agriculture, and climate.

He stated, “With this data warehouse, our researchers will have the tools to analyze large datasets, identify patterns, and contribute to the advancement of medical science. This is a significant step towards improving healthcare delivery in our region and beyond.”

Professor Baagyere highlighted the potential applications of the Data Warehouse in the fields of agriculture and health, emphasizing its role in facilitating research related to medical trends, disease patterns, and healthcare outcomes.

The grant covered three components, including data warehouse facility definition, capacity building, and a vision and strategy that outline the course of the project from 2023 to 2028.

Mottum Analytica, a leading data analytics and consulting firm based in the Canary Islands, led the consultation for securing the grant and would provide consulting services for establishing the facility.

The Clement Kubindiwo Tedam-University of Technology and Applied Sciences (CKT-UTAS), however, initiated a three-member team of lecturers from the School of Computing and Information Sciences (SCIS) of the university, including Professor Edward Y. Baagyere (Dean, SCIS), Dr. Peter Agbedemnab, and Dr. Moses Agebure, to spearhead the project.
