The University of Pittsburgh, a leading higher-education institution, has selected Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud to support its mission to advance teaching, research and public service. With Oracle ERP Cloud, the University of Pittsburgh will be able to improve operational efficiency, modernize its business and finance operations and gain deeper organization insight.

Founded in 1787, the University of Pittsburgh is one of the oldest higher education institutions in the United States and attracts more than 34,000 students each year. To improve the productivity of its finance and operations team, the university needed to replace its legacy financial management system with a modern cloud solution that would improve agility and future-proof the organization. The school selected Oracle ERP Cloud for its ability to manage finance, human resource and student data on a single, highly secure and scalable cloud solution.

“Technology plays a strategic role in the university’s success and the achievement of our mission. To maximize value and impact, our technology must be a coordinated effort across business functions,” said Monte Ciotto, Associate Vice Chancellor, Financial Information Systems. “With Oracle ERP Cloud we’ll be able to manage finance, HR and student data on the same platform, creating a single source of truth that improves efficiency and organizational insights.”

Oracle ERP Cloud helps organizations of all sizes, across multiple industries, increase productivity, lower costs and improve controls. With Oracle ERP Cloud, the University of Pittsburgh will not only be able to embrace current best practices, but it will also enable the University to integrate emerging technology to support changing organizational demands. The University of Pittsburgh also has plans to implement Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud for core HR processes, including payroll, time and attendance, and talent acquisition. The University’s unified ERP and HCM solution will enhance organizational alignment and business insight.

“Technology is an incredible enabler that can help organizations like the University of Pittsburgh not just streamline processes, but also improve engagement and transform existing business processes and models,” said Rondy Ng, senior vice president of applications development at Oracle. “We look forward to partnering with the University of Pittsburgh as it embraces new innovations and works to deliver the best possible higher education experience.”
