- New offerings enable institutions to run their student and ERP systems on-premise or migrate to cloud
ORACLE Corporation has announced several investments in higher education solutions, including the Oracle Student Cloud and other higher education functionality delivered in Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud and Oracle ERP Cloud.
In addition, Oracle will deliver a new release of its PeopleSoft Campus Solutions suite, the company said in a statement.
Mark Armstrong, vice president of higher education product development at Oracle, said that today’s higher education institutions – from traditional research institutions to non-traditional continuing education programmes – have unique challenges but a shared focus on operational excellence and student success.
As the higher education industry moves toward flexible deployment models for administrative systems, Oracle will offer its customers flexibility and choice backed by extensive experience in and commitment to the industry, he claimed.
“Oracle is dedicated to provide this industry with flexible technology options through significant investments,” said Armstrong.
Oracle Student Cloud meets the needs of customers which are transforming their institutions to support configurable standard business processes and to free up IT resources for mission-critical activities in learning, teaching and research, the company said.
Part of the Oracle Education and Research Cloud, the Oracle Student Cloud will also include flexible core structures and extensible architecture to manage a variety of traditional and non-traditional educational offerings, it added.
Finally, Oracle will also offer a new PeopleSoft Campus Solutions release to provide a simpler, more productive user experience and a more efficient application lifecycle management process, it said.
Oracle’s offerings will enable institutions to run their student and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems on-premise or to migrate to a cloud-based deployment when it makes sense for their organisation, the company said.
