Misericordia University Finds Flexibility with Jenzabar

Jenzabar®, Inc., a leading provider of software, strategies, and services for higher education, announced that Misericordia University selected the Jenzabar EX enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.

Misericordia University, located in Dallas, PA, enrolls over 3,000 students in 34 degree programs on the graduate and undergraduate levels in full- and part-time formats. The University’s primary goal was to replace homegrown systems with one, unified system that would fit their current IT structure. Misericordia University also sought an implementation approach that is cost-effective, timely, and non-disruptive to the user departments. The Jenzabar EX system was ultimately chosen to provide users with an enhanced user experience and added, essential functionality.

“Along with the wide range of software and service offerings, Jenzabar is flexible in terms of matching their software with our current IT environment,” said Val Apanovich, Director of Information Technology at Misericordia University. “Jenzabar worked with us in determining the best overall solution and had a proven implementation process, clear product direction, strong client references, and responsive staff.”

The Jenzabar EX ERP system is offered on the industry-leading Microsoft® SQL Server® platform and provides interoperable workflows that adapt as institutional policies change and technology evolves. Misericordia University will also be implementing Jenzabar’s Internet Campus Solution (JICS) web portal solution, providing a single sign-on experience to students, faculty, and staff with the added benefit of a central database.

“The very detailed flash cut implementation methodology is a real plus for our University,” said Apanovich. “With Jenzabar, we can quickly move to a new solution without needing a significant number of new resources to maintain it.”

“Misericordia University required a more robust solution to heighten the user experience,” said Robert A. Maginn, Jr., Chairman and CEO of Jenzabar. “Jenzabar EX is a high value and cost-effective ERP with a proven implementation process that will allow Misericordia to have a speedy and immediate change.”

The revocation of Safe Harbor has radically affected data sovereignty strategy in the cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Jeff Miller, Product Management at Cavirin Systems, discussed how to assess these changes across your own cloud strategy, and how you can mitigate risks previously covered under the agreement.
Digital Initiatives create new ways of conducting business, which drive the need for increasingly advanced security and regulatory compliance challenges with exponentially more damaging consequences. In the BMC and Forbes Insights Survey in 2016, 97% of executives said they expect a rise in data breach attempts in the next 12 months. Sixty percent said operations and security teams have only a general understanding of each other’s requirements, resulting in a “SecOps gap” leaving organizations unable to mobilize to protect themselves. The result: many enterprises face unnecessary risks to data loss and production downtime.
In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Raju Shreewastava, founder of Big Data Trunk, provided a fun and simple way to introduce Machine Leaning to anyone and everyone. He solved a machine learning problem and demonstrated an easy way to be able to do machine learning without even coding. Raju Shreewastava is the founder of Big Data Trunk (www.BigDataTrunk.com), a Big Data Training and consulting firm with offices in the United States. He previously led the data warehouse/business intelligence and Big Data teams at Autodesk. He is a contributing author of book on Azure and Big Data published by SAMS.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
Extreme Computing is the ability to leverage highly performant infrastructure and software to accelerate Big Data, machine learning, HPC, and Enterprise applications. High IOPS Storage, low-latency networks, in-memory databases, GPUs and other parallel accelerators are being used to achieve faster results and help businesses make better decisions. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Michael O'Neill, Strategic Business Development at NVIDIA, focused on some of the unique ways extreme computing is being used on IBM Cloud, Amazon, and Microsoft Azure and how to gain access to these resources in the cloud... for FREE!
