Deloitte CampusCloud transforms higher education operations

Modernized student information and ERP systems in one solution powered by Oracle

Colleges and universities need to think fast and act fast to make quick decisions that impact their operations, both financially and in terms of student satisfaction. Yet, many do not have the modern, extensible ERP systems needed to analyze data, model scenarios, and provide the insights their administrators need to make informed decisions. Similarly, the on-premises legacy student information systems that many institutions rely upon, do not have the capacity to meet the needs of today’s students who expect a consumer-grade, modern user experience for nearly every aspect of their educational journey, from selecting their courses to paying their tuition.

Shorten the learning curve on higher-ed transformation

Higher education is at an inflection point, where institutions can modernize their ERP and student information systems with greater ease and affordability than previously thought possible—all through the power of the cloud. To help institutions navigate their transition to a “student first” environment faster, Deloitte developed CampusCloud which can cut costs, reduce deployment time, and quickly provide analytical insights.

Powered by Oracle Cloud solutions, the offering combines core Oracle Cloud platforms, pre-configured innovation layers, and Deloitte leading practices gleaned from 20+ years of serving institutions of higher learning globally.

Fast-track your cloud journey

The Deloitte CampusCloud offering is both an accelerator and a way to humanize leading-edge technologies. Designed with extensibility and sustainability in mind, CampusCloud is built on Oracle Cloud as the core platform layer.

This modular structure is further enhanced by a client layer that allows the offering to be tailored for institution-specific requirements, and an innovation layer comprising cutting-edge digital technologies and features (e.g., AI, live video chat, robotic process automation, and chatbots).

Model what-ifs and more

CampusCloud incorporates leading practices deployed on Oracle EPM Cloud to provide an integrated financial planning and modeling solution. With it, you can gain the ability to:

  1. Perform scenario analysis for multiple enrollment plans, accommodating bottom-up planning by academic officers as well as top-down planning by finance staff;
  2. Model real-time results while adjusting for enrollment demand and underlying cost drivers, which can help in determining the optimal number of classes to be offered by program based on contribution (by campus and academic unit);
  3. Analyze capacity constraints and utilization, which can help in aligning the enrollment plan with available space;
  4. Reduce uncertainties and inconsistencies in the revenue and expense planning process by leveraging institutional, standardized drivers;
  5. Create multi-year enrollment plans that are data-driven versus indicative by incorporating historical trends, financial actuals and student intake information into one central planning tool; and
  6. Incorporate workforce planning into the budgeting and forecasting process.

Gain unified insights

CampusCloud includes cutting-edge, prepackaged analytical applications based on the Deloitte Analytic Objects (DAO) for Campus module, built on the Oracle Analytics Cloud platform. This module provides high-level and detailed analytics of key student areas such as predicting which applicants will be successful, identifying students that are struggling, and how to improve student engagement and success. It also has the capacity to provide integrated insights by connecting analytics across different functions to identify key attrition risk factors. By allowing multiple stakeholders to communicate based on the same set of truths, the offering can promote agility and transparency and enable holistic decision-making.
