UMRA Simplifies Student Data Management in the SIS
Connection with eSIS
Managing network accounts for students is becoming increasingly complex. Hundreds or even thousands of accounts must be created at the beginning of school year. In addition, during the school year changes are made and updates must be performed. Adding to the complexity, students require access to various applications, e-mail environments, the file system and the e-learning environment.
Much of the data on students has been available in eSIS. UMRA ensures that data from eSIS automatically, and without manual intervention, becomes available in the Active Directory, Novell (NDS), Unix as well as other educational applications, such as access systems, electronic learning environment, library systems, etc. Any change in eSIS is detected by UMRA and then the necessary action is performed.
Benefits to a Connection with eSIS
The benefits of an automated connection with eSIS include complete consistency, faster turnaround times for creating accounts, creating accounts accurately and the ability to apply a workflow for approvals and downstream provisioning.
