Forsyth Tech has relied on Colleague by Ellucian on Rocket Software’s UniData (MultiValue) platform as its central ERP system for years. The Colleague system is the backbone of the College, handling everything from an administrative perspective,including student information, registration, finance, and human resources (HR).
Over time, however, Forsyth Tech found the need for new capabilities, and purchased additional applications. The College also developed its own custom applications, which is less expensive and also means applications meet its own business rules. Integrating data within the core ERP system with those applications, however, proved to be challenging.
