About the Customer

Kentucky State University is a public university in Frankfort, Kentucky. Founded in 1886 as the State Normal School for Colored Persons, KSU was the second state-supported institution of higher learning in Kentucky. 

Scope and Challenges

In 2016 the university decided they needed a change. The same year they underwent a digital transformation to replace an aging ERP system that did not provide insight into the data the university needed to support operational needs.

The school also wanted an HR solution that will help manage the staff of 1600.

Outcome and Implications

KSU after carefully looking into more solutions, in the end, the decision makers of the school chose Oracle as the most suited vendor.  

With the Oracle solutions in place, KSU will be able to more efficiently perform operational duties including providing a better student experience, self-service for employees and improved workflow while transforming its legacy environment to enable its 600 users to gain better insight into financial, procurement, and grant information.
