Innovation BUSINESS GOALS Australia's Flinders University wanted to offer a superior digital experience to its 27,000 students and more than 5,000 staff. That required a modern, cloud-first IT environment, part of an overarching 10-year strategy called Making a Difference: The 2025 Agenda. This visionary initiative prepares graduates for success in a dynamic and unpredictable future of constant technological innovation and disruptive change. Fundamental to the 2025 vision is a five- year digital transformation strategy, which includes moving up to 90 percent of the organization's applications to the cloud. By delivering a personalized student experience and meeting the high expectations of young, tech-savvy digital natives, Flinders can deepen engagement throughout the student lifecycle, from prospect and graduate to alumnus. TECHNOLOGY CHALLENGES In assessing its ambitious plan, Flinders recognized the critical need for integration to connect new cloud applications and existing legacy systems. Yet its integration capabilities were immature, ad hoc, point-to-point and manual. Flinders' deputy CIO Nicole Fishers realized that the university's lack of sophisticated, scalable integration capabilities would delay implementation of its cloud-first roadmap. Flinders needed flexible and easy-to-use cloud- native integration to quickly connect a portfolio of cloud and on-premise applications. Flinders University Modernizes IT Infrastructure With Boomi to Create a Dynamic Digital Campus Flinders University adopts a cloud-first strategy to meet the high expectations of young, tech-savvy digital natives, including students and staff. C A S E S T U D Y Boomi helps us deploy integrations far faster and with much greater flexibility than we ever thought possible. Nicole Fishers, Deputy CIO, Flinders University
