About the Customer

The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system or Minnesota State System, previously branded as MnSCU, comprises 30 state colleges and 7 state universities with 54 campuses throughout Minnesota. The system is the largest higher education system in Minnesota (separate from the University of Minnesota system) and the fourth largest in the United States

Scope and Challenges

The school organization was constrained by the physical exudate, which was delivering results until they run out of space.They decided it is time to make a change and the Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud was perfect because of its ability of elasticity. 

Backed by its key differentiators like fault-tolerance through application clustering, security updates and software patches easily done online and a fully integrated hardware and software infrastructure, the broadening of the Oracle Autonomous suite comes at an opportune time just as enterprise customers and developers are evaluating a range of possibilities to address their immediate and long-term pain points.

Outcome and Implications

After implementing and starting testing the data warehouse, the testers noticed it was very easy to interact with uploading data into datastore. They uploaded a couple of different types of data; dump data and delimited data, and loading it into the data warehouse itself was simple.

They also tried a couple of different mechanisms; data pump load and external table loads, they were a fast turnaround and was surprisingly well performing.

The project went live in 2018.
