Oracle today announced that the University of Wyoming (UW), has selected Oracle Cloud to transform the way UW does business at every level, by providing a modern and synchronized technology platform to further academic excellence. As Wyoming’s only provider of baccalaureate graduate education, research, and outreach services, UW decided it could no longer wait to redesign its 20-year-old systems. The initiative incorporates finance, human resources (HR), budgeting and planning, grant management, and supply chain management systems—all of which are core to the University’s operations.

The university’s strategic Oracle Cloud implementation, named WyoCloud, will help UW respond to today’s opportunities and challenges by enabling department staff to access timely, accurate information at the right time to run the institution more efficiently. Oracle’s complete and modern solutions will thus free employees to focus more time and effort on enhancing the student experience now and in the future.

UW’s new cloud-based finance, HR, grant management, and supply chain solutions include seamless implementations of Oracle’s Enterprise Resource Planning  (ERP) Cloud, Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud, Supply Chain Management (SCM) Cloud, and Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud.

The project has received tremendous support and interest from the UW community and the WyoCloud team has prioritized outreach, communication, and ongoing training efforts to help streamline the transition to the new systems. WyoCloud has also formed a network of Change Agents to provide additional channels for information and feedback on the project.

“We had a competitive proposal process where the selection committee unanimously chose the Oracle Cloud for its ability to help enable our university’s pursuit of excellence based on their history of success in supporting the specific needs of higher education,” said Jennifer Chavez, Director, Application and Database Services, at the University of Wyoming. “As a premier educational institution, it is our top priority to run our university in the most efficient manner to ensure our students succeed and compete.”

Oracle Cloud Applications’ unified interface and powerful reporting and analytics provide intuitive, real-time information for insightful decision making, allowing UW to leverage the solutions to help the university better configure the way they do business. UW’s systems will soon leverage the same Oracle ERP and EPM Cloud technology that helps thousands of companies integrate readily available data into reliable reports. This technology incorporates a modern user interface, embedded analytics, contextual social collaboration, and a device-independent mobile experience designed to make the solution familiar and easy to use.

Oracle SCM Cloud will help enable strategic sourcing and resource planning and better procurement processes so UW can more efficiently use state resources with the savings. Oracle HCM Cloud will allow UW’s HR department to leverage the proper information and technology to better attract and support students.

“By adopting the latest cloud technology, the University of Wyoming is establishing a path toward continued growth, academic innovation, and student success,” said Terrance Wampler, vice president of financials applications strategy at Oracle. “Oracle is committed to furthering the success of higher education institutions. Our next-generation cloud platform will help streamline and modernize processes to allow University of Wyoming’s faculty and staff to focus on education innovation and to better attract and support their students.”
