Leading research university invests in Oracle Cloud

PR Newswire

CHICAGO, Oct. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- EDUCAUSE -- Michigan State University, a leading higher education and research institution, has engaged Oracle to replace its mainframe student information system infrastructure. This modernization project will help the university address challenges around fiscal sustainability, transforming the student experience and building capacity for long-term institutional innovation. To reach these goals, the university charted an incremental path to the cloud and will be implementing several Oracle Cloud solutions, including Oracle Student Financial Planning (SFP). Michigan State University also selected Exadata Cloud at Customer to operate PeopleSoft Campus Solutions in one hybrid cloud environment.

"Our partnership with Michigan State confirms our investment, commitment and success in the higher education market," said Keith Rajecki, vice president of Oracle Public Sector, Education and Research. "We offer a complete and market-leading set of applications and technology and we are continuing to invest in research and development efforts."

For the past 160 years, Michigan State has pushed the boundaries of discovery and forged partnerships to solve the most pressing global challenges while providing life-changing opportunities to a diverse and inclusive academic community. The university joins an increasing number of higher education institutions moving to the cloud following a practical path that maps to its goals of improving student outcomes and institutional standing, achieving operational efficiency, and optimizing decision making through enhanced insights, all while also reducing compliance costs.

"With higher education facing increasing student expectations, changing fiscal realities, and the need to future-proof their institutions, the adoption of cloud technologies and applications is proving to be a key component of overall institutional success," said Vivian Wong, group vice president of Higher Education Development at Oracle. "Oracle's unified stack of solutions, including infrastructure through to business and purpose-built higher education applications, offer institutions, like Michigan State, the ability to choose an incremental path to cloud - delivering immediate value while also considering their unique contextual requirements."
