The University of Tennessee System is replacing its former student data information system with Oracle Fusion Cloud Student in its ongoing migration to the cloud.
The university system previously used Banner and CAMS systems for student data. The new system with Oracle aims to provide students with streamlined access to their classes, financial aid and other university support.
“A new system-wide student information system will be a key component in the delivery of a more consistent and intuitive student experience focused on service excellence, increased engagement and enhanced student success outcomes,” Randy Boyd, president of the University of Tennessee System, said in a press release.
Oracle Fusion Cloud Student, also known as Oracle Student, allows students to manage their academic experience from start to finish with tools for registration, financial aid, course planning and academic insights, according to the release.
“From the beginning, we have architected Oracle Student to support the unique needs of systems in the most agile and dynamic ways,” Vivian Wong, vice president of higher education development at Oracle, said in the release. “We are excited to have a passionate partner in UT as we work together to deliver a product that will help shape the future of higher education.”
The University of Tennessee System is also implementing other resources from the Oracle suite, including Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning, Oracle Fusion Cloud Human Capital Management and Oracle Fusion Cloud Supply Chain Management.
“We are confident that this investment will position the UT System at the forefront of student system technologies,” Boyd said.
