Does your IT infrastructure have too many manual steps, is too complex and too expensive?
With Campus Integration Framework (CIF) universities are able to make their increasingly cluttered and overgrown IT infrastructure more flexible. Campus Integration Framework comprises several modules and plug-ins. These make it possible to combine your existing system with a new one and integrate Campus Management, ERP and HR software, E-learning and library systems into a unified IT architecture. Individual university processes can be adapted quickly with CIF, and further applications and services can be added efficiently.
Areas of operation
CIF is independent of any database or platform and is based on open standards. The framework allows you to customise business processes, implement and monitor them throughout process organisation and process management.
Integrate Campus Management with ERP systems
Integrating Campus Management systems like CampusNet® (with ERP systems such as SAP) is a typical IT requirement at universities.
For example, if the university employs a registered student as research assistants, a synchronised data between CampusNet® and SAP is required. CampusNet® contains the student master data while the universities’ HR system is run on SAP.
The Campus Integration Framework simplifies these business processes without having to program expensive point-to-point interfaces between the individual systems.
Integrate Campus Management with E-learning
By using CIF, different E-learning platforms like Moodle can be connected and integrated with Campus-Management-System (CMS). Lecture rooms (as listed within a learning management system LMS) can be automatically assigned to courses registered on CampusNet®. Users, rights and general information are synced with both systems. If a student registers for a course, his registration is automatically noted in the learning-management-system. Students and lectures alike can access the room linked with their course without having to log into LMS. On the other hand any information published on LMS is automatically transferred to the Campus management system.
No programming is necessary when integrating functions with the Campus Integration Framework (CIF). The CIF operates code-free and provides a graphical configuration interface that allows quick and easy integration. The CIF sets new standards in ease of use and operates with minimal training required.
While developing the model of your university business processes, the integration tool provides a simple process emulator. This will move you through the module flow to view the results of your process. You can log the integration steps in progress and monitor the performance of the system integration. A driver’s eye view provides information on latency, volume, error rates and other important criteria.
