The University of Wyoming has selected Oracle Cloud to provide a modern and synchronized technology platform.
The university says its strategic Oracle Cloud implementation, named “WyoCloud,” will help it respond to opportunities and challenges by enabling department staff to access accurate information at the right time to run the institution more efficiently.
As Wyoming’s only provider of baccalaureate graduate education, research, and outreach services, the university’s initiative incorporates finance, human resources (HR), budgeting and planning, grant management, and supply chain management systems—all of which are core to its operations.
The new cloud-based finance, HR, grant management, and supply chain solutions include implementations of Oracle’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud, Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud, Supply Chain Management (SCM) Cloud, and Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud.
The WyoCloud team has prioritized outreach, communication, and ongoing training efforts to help streamline the transition to the new systems. WyoCloud has also formed a network of Change Agents to provide additional channels for information and feedback on the project.
The university had a competitive proposal process where the selection committee unanimously chose the Oracle Cloud for its ability to help enable its pursuit of excellence based on its history of success in supporting the specific needs of higher education, said Jennifer Chavez, director, Application and Database Services, at the University of Wyoming, noting that it is the school’s top priority to operate in the most efficient manner.
Oracle Cloud Applications’ unified interface and reporting and analytics provide real-time information for decision making, allowing the university to better configure the way it does business. The school’s systems will also soon leverage the same Oracle ERP and EPM Cloud technology that help companies integrate data into reports. The technology incorporates a modern user interface, embedded analytics, contextual social collaboration, and a device-independent mobile experience.
According to the school, Oracle SCM Cloud will also help enable strategic sourcing and resource planning and better procurement processes so UW can more efficiently use state resources with the savings. Oracle HCM Cloud will allow UW’s HR department to leverage the proper information and technology to better attract and support students.
