Bowie State University Streamlines its Financial System and Processes with Oracle Cloud Financials

Following a 2021 USM CIO’s office audit, Bowie State faced a time-sensitive challenge – by July 1, 2022, Bowie State needed to move off its current Financials system which was no longer supported by Oracle. As a result, Bowie State elected to move to the modern Oracle Financial Cloud application as part of its “Cloud First” initiative. This approach freed Bowie State from the need to continue maintaining its legacy PeopleSoft infrastructure.
