The disruption of the business model in Higher Education continues at a rapid pace and is driven by a variety of factors. Schools continue to face funding shortages, and funds are increasingly tied to student performance rather than the old metric of attendance. Tuitions are rising, so students are scrutinizing the value of their degree more carefully. The modernization of the consumer experience has changed expectations of how faculty, staff and students interact and transact on campus. And new learning technologies and companies are challenging long established belief that a quality education only comes from earning a degree at a traditional 2-year or 4-year college.
Meeting these challenges requires a complete overhaul of IT infrastructure to leverage the modern technologies required to create the university of the future. It is no surprise that campus leaders are looking to cloud to replace outdated systems, and particularly to cloud providers that offer a complete, integrated suite of applications, platform and infrastructure to improve business processes, lower costs, provide critical insights, and engage faculty, staff and students.
One example of this transformation in action is Pittsburg State, an institution located in southeast Kansas with 7,000 students and 850 faculty and staff. Learn how their implementation of Oracle will help them improve operational excellence, reduce costs and provide a scalable, flexible platform needed to modernize their campus.
