Managing The Integrated Student Cloud

As more and more applications migrate to the Cloud, the challenge of maintaining an integrated ecosystem grows increasingly difficult, and essential. New product categories like Integration Platform as a Service (iPaas) help streamline the spiderweb of traditional point-to-point integrations while shifting the effort from the shoulders of high-skill engineering resources to the fingertips of ‘citizen developers’ with no-code, drag-and-drop interfaces. These new solutions will give institutions the tools they need to define their portfolio-wide student ecosystem, and allow Oracle to deliver out-of-the-box integrations so that schools can concentrate resources on mission critical projects.
