DBTA Case Study - Revelation Software's O4W Helps College Create Self-Service Student Portal

River Parishes Community College (RPCC) is an open-admission, 2-year, public institution. It is located in the small Ascension Parish town of Sorrento in what is known as the River Parishes region of the state because of the parishes' proximity to the Mississippi River. RPCC recently implemented a new self-service student portal based on Revelation Software's Web 2.0 toolkit, OpenInsight for Web (O4W). The new portal allows students to accomplish a range of tasks on their own, such as scheduling classes, without requiring assistance from school administrators.

A customer of Revelation since its inception, the college started with Advanced Revelation and has made upgrades along the way, moving to the OpenInsight Windows version in 2004. OpenInsight, Revelation's flagship product, is an application development environment that enables development teams to work collaboratively to design, develop, and scale high-performance business solutions on networks, the web, and mobile devices.

In addition, the new OpenInsight for Web (O4W) Development Toolkit makes it possible for OpenInsight developers with limited or no HTML/XML/JavaScript experience to develop feature-rich webpages. O4W is designed to work the way OpenInsight developers think, taking advantage of the skills and knowledge they already have.
