Holy Cross Re-Platforms Its PeopleSoft Applications in the AWS Cloud and Implements Improved Student Experience

Like many colleges and universities, Holy Cross is under increasing pressure to remain agile in today’s competitive Higher Education landscape. After the recent losses of key IT staff due to retirements and competitive labor markets, the College faced the dual challenge of recruiting employees with hard-to-find PeopleSoft skills and the imminent need to replace its existing hardware.

Key Project Highlights:

  • Scale to meet peak infrastructure demands for the Campus Solutions ERP application during student registration periods
  • Eliminate labor and system recovery single points of failure in supporting the PeopleSoft applications
  • Stay up to date with important application and system updates
  • Accelerate cloud transition strategy with an inclusive, SaaS-like service model that helps enable internal staff to focus on mission-critical needs supporting student success
