Cloud-Based Platform for Higher Education Success

With CampusNexus, institutions can respond dynamically to change on a flexible and extensible platform, grow enrollments and add campuses, gain greater insight from data across the institution, and optimize technology around student and operational success.

Respond Dynamically to Student and Business Needs

Flexible Cloud-Based Platform

As a higher education institution, you need an open technology foundation that helps you deliver on your mission. You don’t get that from a closed-box proprietary system. You get that from CampusNexus®.

Your institution benefits from a standards-based cloud architecture built on the Microsoft Power Platform, a rich ecosystem of integrated enterprise applications and flexible foundation for responding dynamically to student and operational needs.

Deploy on a Standards-Based Cloud Platform Designed for Higher Education Success

Built on Microsoft Azure

With a higher education platform built on Microsoft Azure, you have the freedom to build, manage, and deploy applications on a massive, secure, and global network using your preferred tools and frameworks.

You leverage Campus Management’s CampusNexus Solutions Suite for Higher Education, plus Microsoft’s enterprise ready tools, including Power BI, PowerApps, Flow, and Dynamics 365, to improve student engagement, business processes, and workflows.

Unite Higher Education Systems and Applications with Common Data Service (CDS)

In the past, sharing data between software systems was difficult without extensive customizations. Each application became its own silo of data.

With Microsoft’s Common Data Service, you can share information between all your apps and sync across all areas of your operation. You improve visibility, collaboration, and insight across departments, systems, and data sources.

We’re a university not a data center. Leveraging the Azure Cloud platform makes us a better, more efficient IT shop.

Turn Insight into Action Across Your Institution to Drive Student Success

What are the key factors influencing a student’s decision to attend your institution? What’s the best way to keep students on the path to graduation and successful outcomes? Now you can gain timely insights for developing and executing strategies based on all your data through predictive and prescriptive analytics, and embedded Power BI dashboards with dynamic visuals. Deliver insights throughout the institution using CampusNexus and external data sources.

Manage Higher Education Business Processes, Approvals, and More with Automated Workflows

Microsoft Flow

Now you can create and automate business processes, approvals, and workflows visually. For example, if someone tweets about your institution, you can set up a flow that follows them, adds them to a spreadsheet that gets emailed to you for approval, and then enters them as a contact in CampusNexus Engage.

A feature of the CampusNexus Event-Driven Architecture, Microsoft Flow enables you to compose business logic visually using activities and apply human workflow capability to business processes.
