Ohio State Wraps PeopleSoft Campus Solutions Deployment
- By Dian Schaffhauser
The Ohio State University in Columbus has finished its multi-year deployment of the entire PeopleSoft Campus Solutions suite with the help of Io Consulting. The consultancy previously assisted the university system in the deployment of Campus Community and Admissions and is currently helping in the assessment of Ohio State's overall PeopleSoft support organization as a part of Io's ITIL Service Management offering.
Self-service registration for Summer 2009 and Autumn 2009 is open and has totaled 223,000 enrollments so far. In addition, 14,000 financial aid packages have been processed. The project also required a substantial historical data conversion effort that included 21 million student class enrollments.
Campus Solutions is a suite of applications that encompass multiple management areas for a university, including academic advising, campus self-service, contributor relations, financial aid, course management, student administration, recruiting and admissions, student financials, and student records.
An Oracle Certified Partner, Io Consulting has also worked, among others, with Duke University in Durham, NC; the California State University System, and the University System of Maryland.
