Revolutionising the Student Experience: Building a Connected Student Journey Using Azure Integration Services

NeosAlpha’s Microsoft Azure Practise redeveloped the student platform of a reputed UK University by replacing point-to-point integrations with Azure’s Integration Services (AIS)

Business Goals

Our client is a reputed public research university in the UK. As a leading international university with campuses in 3 different countries, they offer a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programs in various fields, including science, engineering, business, design, and social sciences. The university has a diverse student community, with students from over 150 countries. They are committed to providing a high-quality student experience. It offers various services and facilities to support its students, including a library, accommodation, student support services, sports facilities, and more.

The university aimed to enhance the complete student lifecycle: from attracting talent, onboarding recruits, day-to-day support, exams and assessments to graduation and alumni communities. Their strategy was to develop an integrated system to provide a comprehensive view of the student journey, including academic performance, accommodation, finance, and other relevant information.

Technological Challenges

Given the volume of courses offered by the university and the number of students enrolled, they were using various off-the-shelf software customised to their needs, in-house developed legacy systems and Oracle Fusion as the financial management system.

Below are some of the applications used by the university.

All these applications operated in silos or had point-to-point integration with other systems. And this led to data issues like duplication of data, unavailability of the latest data, data synchronisation etc., which was challenging for the university to manage. So they wanted a solution to establish a common way of integrating with all their systems. But, at the same time, they did not want to make any changes or customisations to the systems.

How NeosAlpha Helped

After a detailed assessment of the university’s requirements and existing systems, our technical solutions consultants proposed Microsoft’s Azure Integration Services (AIS) to build an integration solution connecting various applications, whether on-premise or in the cloud.

Following are the key AIS components employed by the solution,

And Azure Functions wherever a custom, complex business logic was required as part of the transformation.

Below are some of the important architectural decisions made as part of the solution building,

We also set up fully automated CI/CD pipelines during the implementation phase using Azure DevOps.
