Oracle's Announcement at Alliance 2014

This year Oracle made a major announcement at the Alliance Conference (see links below for more information). 
Oracle Investment in Higher Education-Executive Summary 2014 
Oracle Investment in Higher Education FAQ 2014

Oracle is making new, significant investments in Higher Ed solutions that will complement the ongoing investment in functionality to support global Higher Ed operating models in our industry-leading SIS, HCM and ERP applications.

Attendees of the Alliance 2014 Conference opening Session heard Oracle's major announcement by Mark Armstrong, Vice President Higher Education Development, and Steve Miranda, Executive Vice President Applications Development.  The announced investment includes a focus in three key areas:

  1. Student Cloud - the Cloud-based Student Information System, for customers who are transforming their business to incorporate Cloud/SaaS deployment.
  2. Campus Solutions 9.2 release, to bring customers a simpler, more productive user experience and more tailored, efficient application life-cycle management process.
  3. Higher Ed "ready" core ERP Cloud and HCM Cloud applications, with significant enhancements in both solutions. The new SIS, in conjunction with enhanced HCM and ERP functionality, provides customers with a comprehensive Cloud platform for Higher Ed.

This announcement will ultimately impact all Campus Solutions customers, so we encourage you to read the Oracle Executive Summary and FAQ document referenced above. 


Campus Solutions Ongoing Projects

Bundle 34
To apply the PeopleSoft Campus Solutions application software Bundle 34 which delivers regulatory compliance updates for Financial Aid Regulatory Release 3 for 2014 – 2015. It also provides a number of software fixes, enhancements and satisfies the prerequisites for Campus Solutions Bundle 34. We will also apply the Oracle Managed Services Retrofit project and any Oracle prerequisite patches or post bundle release critical patches.

Texas State Reporting
To provide data for Texas State Reporting including TEOG, Texas Grant and FAD001 enhancements and corrections.

Door Access/Badge System
To provide a single repository of information in order to generate student ID cards from a single-source system, and to control badge access to sensitive areas for students, particularly Health Professions

VA Benefit Certification
To roll out the delivered Campus Solutions VA Benefit functionality to support the VA certification business process

SPEEDE Inbound
To provide SPEEDE Inbound enhancements.

RSAN Emergency Management
To create student files for the RSAN emergency system.

T2 Integration
T2 Parking System integration with Campus Solutions to automatically add and remove service indicators on student accounts.

Federal College Work Study Integration-Enhancement
This modification is needed to satisfy a requirement of the State of Texas and the Federal Government. Each year, both entities require the institution to report work study data elements on all recipients of the award. Data elements include but are not limited to bio/demo data, FAFSA information, and award information.  Campus Solutions does not provide a way to track student's earnings. 

Milestones Cleanup and Enhancement
Milestones – New Development. Add logic for Veterans Waiver.

Colleague Sunset
To formally and officially retire all Colleague users from the prior ERP systems, Colleague, and NHCC (old NHMCCD system).

Symplicity Accommodate Disability Services Database
Implement Symplicity Accommodate Disability Service Database.  Sympliciy Accommodate is compatible with PeopleSoft.  It will be important to refresh data nightly (can be an automatic refresh), once implemented, so that accurate reports can be generated through ORIE. 

Follett Bookstore Interface
This project is to create the VM's and install the Follett ConnectOnce appliance which will allow for a more streamlined, accurate and flexible course import process.  The benefit is to more accurately identify and stock LSCS textbooks to students by allowing more frequent data loads that are pulled from Campus Solutions rather than static Excel spreadsheets.

Learning Communities Project
Instructionally, we know that students that participate in learning communities persist longer and are more successfully. However, linking these classes have been problematic and manual since we moved to Peoplesoft.  Currently there were changes to allow us to build the courses such that the course linkages could be determined; although the courses are linked there is no mechanism that facilitates the students enrolling in both classes.  Students are consistently enrolling in one class but not the other, which creates significant workflow issues for the staff and enrollment barriers for the students.  Moreover it negates our overall goals to facilitate student enrollment in these classes to support their success.

Replacement of Comevo Process
Currently,  LSCS has Comevo for another year on contract to track the Orientation and Pre-Assessment Activity.  We would like to consider other options to move away from this contract whether it's possibly in-house or through another outside vendor interfacing with CS.  

Update State Grant SQRs
This project is needed to satisfy stare requirements to report on the TEOG and TX Grant funds by July 15th. The attached SQRs need to be updated with enhancements in the SQR update document attached in order to bring the reports in alignment with this year's requirements. As the reports are due to the state by July 15th, we will need to be able to test the final product by July 2nd and then move it into production the following week to stay within an acceptable timeline. 

Academic Partnerships iStar Integration
This project facilitates the integration between iStar and AP (Academic Partnership).
