LINE OF BUSINESS DATA UNIFIED FOR HIGHER EDUCATION
In 1997, Kentucky made the strategic decision to consolidate all of its community and technical colleges into a single system, forming the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS). Since consolidating, KCTCS has been engaged in an ongoing institutional transformation focused on reducing costs, driving efficiency and evolving into an organization with truly unified shared services and systems.
Despite these improvements, they still faced a major transformational hurdle. In terms of sharing and collaboration, KCTCS was still operating as 16 different college organizations. Intent on pushing the transformation to the next level, they engaged Summit 7 Systems to unite PeopleSoft Financials, PeopleSoft HCM, PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, and Blackboard all through a single interface in SharePoint.
