San Bernardino Community College District Deploys Cloud-Based ERP System

San Bernardino Community College District in California has selected a new cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to provide insight into operations and improve reporting to support the decision-making process.

San Bernardino Community College District is one of 72 community college districts within the California Community College system, and it's "in the process of becoming fiscally independent from the County," said Jose Torres, vice chancellor of business and fiscal services for San Bernardino Community College District, in a news release. As part of that process, Torres and his team were looking for "a robust, complete cloud ERP solution that could help us transform our organization."

The district selected Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud. According to information from Oracle, its ERP Cloud includes financials, planning and budgeting, risk and controls management, procurement and sourcing, inventory and cost management, product master data management and project portfolio management.

San Bernardino Community College District will work with Highstreet IT Solutions on the implementation. Once the new system is in place, it should help the district "drive sustainable cost reductions, simplify processes and standardize systems," according to a news release from Oracle.

In related Oracle news, several other higher education institutions have opted to deploy Oracle's cloud-based systems recently. Kentucky State University (KSU) has selected both Oracle ERP Cloud and Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud to replace its aging ERP system and improve the efficiency of its operations. Bellevue University in Nebraska has selected Oracle ERP Cloud and Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service to replace its on-premise licensing. And Vanderbilt University in Tennessee has selected Oracle ERP Cloud and Oracle HCM Cloud to replace its 30-year-old legacy system.
