NAU uses PeopleSoft software applications for our Human
Resources and Student Information System (LOUIE) functionality. These two
separate applications used a common back-end infrastructure since
LOUIE was implemented in 2003. PeopleSoft no longer supports this
single-database architecture, and we have started a project to separate the two
applications to run on distinct database and systems architectures.
We have hired expert outside consulting services to help us
with this project. The consultants from Cedar Crestone have completed over
sixteen similar projects with other universities and bring needed experience
and software utilities to aid NAU in our effort. Additionally, representatives
from the campus administrative offices will be working side-by-side with ITS
staff in our analysis and testing to ensure that the
appropriate integration points continue to work seamlessly behind the scenes so
the end user should have the same “single-application” experience as existed prior to the project.
The project implementation is scheduled for June 2013.
