Established in 1946, Konkuk University is one of Korea’s leading higher education institutions, serving 30,000 local and international students via its Seoul and Glocal campuses. It has 22 undergraduate colleges and graduate schools, and four professional schools for architecture, law, business, and medicine.
Konkuk selected Oracle Database Appliance and Oracle Database to centralize student administration services on a single information system that delivers high performance, reliability, efficiency, and ease of use at a low cost.
“Oracle Database Appliance is a perfect fit for education institutions that offer academic and general administration services and strive to improve student satisfaction,” said Giyeol Nam, assistant manager and software architect, information management team, Office of Information and Communications, Konkuk University.
“By implementing Oracle solutions, we effectively automated and integrated student administration processes by consolidating disparate databases and replacing inefficient servers with a single system,” Nam said.
In July 2012, Konkuk University completed implementation of Oracle Database Appliance with support from Oracle Consulting and partner DMI Systems. It implemented the system, including data migration, in just two days.
DMI Systems, an IT service company, managed the project—from planning through rollout of Oracle Database Appliance.
“DMI Systems applied its experience with Oracle Database Appliance and the higher education sector to lead an effective and efficient implementation. It has also contributed to successfully completing the project by providing a high-level of IT expertise with customized solutions,” Nam said.
