A roadmap for an integrated university information system
17 : Issue 17 (Jul-Sep 2015) ( 2015-09 )


Nowadays, universities are highly in need of an integrated university information system (IUIS) to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the business processes in university administration which are eventually getting complicated due to increase in student enrollment. In this study, it is aimed to propose a roadmap for an IUIS based on strategic, logical, physical, and organizational connectivity issues to fulfil this need. For this purpose, firstly literature survey has been done on connectivity issues and best practices of IUISs. Afterwards, a university in Turkey has been analyzed in detail and a roadmap for an IUIS is proposed as a case study. The IUIS in the proposed roadmap consists of various subsystems that are integrated through a platform. All the subsystems on this IUIS platform communicate with each other via web services and this platform is accessed by users through a portal. As the output of this study, the roadmap for an IUIS is recommended and explained in detail under the four connectivity issues.
