Digital Transformation: Data Integration for a Community College System

The country’s largest community college system, with 113 campuses across the state, was running many simultaneous technology integration projects to support major statewide education initiatives. Some of the goals were to integrate student data from all 113 campuses; expedite student graduation timelines; and to improve online education, education planning, and common assessment capabilities. The client needed a partner to plan and execute the massive set of implementation projects.
