Decorah, IA 52101, USA

Abstract: A campus-wide information system is a major undertaking regardless of the size of the institution especially when the legacy infrastructure was one of "best of breed" approach for each administrative unit. Transitioning from a "silo" approach to an integrated strategy requires a change in thinking and processes. The project to implement an integrated information system began in the spring of 2000 at Luther College. In spring of 2004, all the major modules of the new integrated system were put in place. The challenges faced along the way, the benefits harnessed, and the lessons learned will be discussed. Overall, the project was on time and within budget.
