TechnologyOne partners with AWS to power SaaS solution for La Trobe University

TechnologyOne (ASX:TNE) has nominated Amazon Web Services (AWS) as its strategic cloud platform to deliver Student Management Software as a Service (SaaS) to La Trobe University.

A customer since 2006, La Trobe University is moving from an on premise environment to the TechnologyOne SaaS solution. The globally renowned university will leverage TechnologyOne’s solution to deliver a superior experience for students and streamline business processes for academic and administration staff.

TechnologyOne joined the AWS Partner Network in 2015 to deliver its leading enterprise SaaS solution to customers in a high performing, reliable, and secure manner.

"A true SaaS model, such as the one we have built through our relationship with AWS, serves our customers far more effectively, by simplifying their IT infrastructure, optimising the performance of their platform and enterprise systems, and delivering enormous economies of scale," said TechnologyOne’s Executive Chairman, Adrian Di Marco.

TechnologyOne’s strong partnership with ASW was recognised when it was named the AWS technology partner of the year at the 4th annual AWS Parther Summit in Sydney on 26 April 2016.

Now, La Trobe University is reaping the benefits of a massively scalable, industry-specific solution that will provide students and staff with increased functionality on all platforms, including smart phones.

“The partnership with TechnologyOne is a significant component within our ‘Future Ready’ Strategic Plan, which will see the university become faster moving, more engaging and ensure everything we produce is of the highest quality,” says La Trobe Executive Director and Chief Information Officer Peter Nikoletatos.

“This is an exciting project for La Trobe University, as we prepare for our 50-year anniversary in 2017. We are confident that TechnologyOne is the right vendor to partner with for a transformational project of this kind, given its deep connections to the higher education industry and history of success in this market.

“At the core of our strategy is the need to fully transform our student experience by providing anywhere, anytime, any device capability, seamless real time integration and flexibility in academic program management. We’re committed to ensuring La Trobe students have an outstanding experience, from first enquiry through to employment and beyond.”

La Trobe University will be the first university in Australia to have its student management system on a true SaaS platform, and joins a growing roster of international universities using TechnologyOne’s SaaS solution including the UK’s University of Exeter, University of Lincoln and University of South Wales.

“We’re delighted to be working with La Trobe University at this transformational time in the university’s history,” says TechnologyOne Executive Chairman Adrian Di Marco.

“La Trobe University has invested in a future-proof solution, gaining access to new features, functionality and technologies as part of the Saas offering.

“All universities, TAFEs and other education institutes experience an extreme peak load on their systems and servers during their enrolment period.

“With the elastic nature of our true SaaS solution, TechnologyOne will be able to support this for La Trobe University, eliminating the need for the university to own, run and manage expensive supporting hardware. This will free up the university to focus on its core business, such as providing superior student experience and academic support.”

With AWS, TechnologyOne has taken its enterprise software solution to the cloud, providing customers with enterprise software that evolves and adapts to keep pace with new and emerging technologies.
