System
Consolidation
and
Integration

Universities are complex places, with numerous departments providing services to a variety of users across multiple campuses and even across countries. EDUCAUSE has identified digital integration as one of the top 10 issues facing higher education in 2018, or in its words, the challenge of “ensuring system interoperability, scalability, extensibility as well as data integrity… across multiple applications and platforms.” Integrated services have obvious advantages. They allow these complex institutions to provide users with a holistic view of services, ensure that strategy is aligned across departments, and enable better use of resources.

The challenge of consolidating systems

Email, learning management systems, timetables, PC availability, library accounts, finance systems–-throughout their time at university, students must access a considerable number of systems, each with its own dedicated look-and-feel and user experience. Navigating through this maze of services can be difficult, especially if there are different identity-management protocols in place.

Students and other users can easily get lost between systems, feel like they are “passed around,” and even lose confidence in the services if their experience is too disjointed. The challenge for IT departments is to consolidate access these systems to make them simple and consistent for both users and administrators.
