As a finance, operations, or IT manager in higher education, perhaps you’re already taking a hard look at your on-premises ERP system. If you aren’t, you should be – it may be holding your institution back from becoming a modern, agile institution ready to achieve its core mission – teaching, learning and research. If your institution is like many others, your assessment will ultimately lead you away from legacy, on-premises ERP to the cloud.

Higher Education & Research Industry Viewpoints

In this ebook, we’ll explore the disruptive new technologies transforming higher education, and the new models being adopted across administration, learning, and research. We’ll discuss how student expectations and demographics are changing, and how new fiscal realities put institutions under pressure.

Taking a Journey to the Modern Campus

Positioning ERP, HCM, and SIS more as a unified set of solutions to address business problems rather than a set of individual applications defined by discrete features and functionality will be critical moving forward. While each institution must assess the suitability of its current solutions and whether new investment is warranted, as the industry moves to the cloud, it will become increasingly difficult for those on legacy systems to compete effectively in the market. However, the path to a modern campus and innovative technology does not have to be a high-risk rip-and-replace endeavor, but instead can include choice and timing that support an institution's unique needs and readiness. This strategy of integrating existing systems with new cloud applications over time enables colleges and universities to take the journey to a modern campus at their own pace and in a way that is best aligned with their unique business needs.
