University modernizes IT architecture to meet the changing demands of 19,000+ students
UK-based University of Sussex, a historically innovative institution, recently adopted a cloud-first modernization strategy with the goal of redefining digital learning. The Boomi Platform is a key pillar in this new IT architecture.
With Boomi, the university is creating a digital campus that will provide on-demand access to course and assessment materials across multiple platforms to more than 19,000 students in over 100 countries.
Boomi has addressed the university’s data and integration needs in three main ways:
- Enabling the transition to an updated virtual learning environment from previous platforms that had inhibited integration between the record system and online learning materials.
- Controlling and securing the critical data flow on the university’s virtual-learning environment and e-assessments site. The latter is now accessed by thousands of students and staff, from online submission through to tutor feedback and marking, via the API management portal.
- Ensuring the efficient cloud migration of key IT infrastructure with low-code capability and realtime, API-led integration, while also controlling and monitoring integration processes in the background.
"With Boomi, we’ve revitalized how we deliver teaching and learning, giving our students an increasingly rich digital environment."
