LEAPForward held the official kick-off with Oracle’s project leadership team for the new Illinois State University Student Information System (SIS). There were more than 75 people in attendance including numerous departments across campus, the LEAPForward team, and University leadership. The implementation of Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions will begin in February.
LEAPForward is pleased to announce the selection of Oracle's PeopleSoft Campus Solutions as the Illinois State University Student Information System. Since the Initiative began in December of 2011, over 2,500 campus-wide participants, including a senior leadership steering team, logged over 35,000 hours in support of this effort. As we transition from planning to implementation, we want to once again express our gratitude for the hard work and determination of all those who participated.
