Dubai, October 23, 2010
SunGard Higher Education, a leading provider of educational services, has announced the release of the next generation of Luminis Portal and web services delivery platform.
The Luminis platform solution launch provides a new architecture, advanced product features and personalisation capabilities to help institutions of higher education enhance online information and service delivery, foster campus community, preserve institutional branding and ease technology management, the company said in a statement.
Luminis Platform 5 makes it easier for colleges and universities to create a common gateway and single online environment in which to deliver data and services to a widely dynamic and diverse audience, the statement added.
The robust and easy-to-use administrative capabilities further support the delivery of personalized services and campus information. New community and collaboration spaces facilitate information sharing and collaboration in both the academic and social context, the said.
Further, Luminis Platform 5 is extensible and built with a focus around services orientation and modularity, said a senior official.
“Institutions of higher education are working hard to meet the online access and service expectations of their diverse constituents while balancing staffing and budget constraints,” explained Darren Wesemann, SunGard’s chief technology and product officer.
“Understanding the environment of multiple systems, we developed a standards-based portal platform to help ease and reduce the time required to manage systems, freeing time to instead focus on those tasks that strengthen relationships, improve the learning experience and deliver more constituent value,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
