Planning for the Future
September 13, 2018
In 1980s, disco was hot, the Cold War was not, and video games became immensely popular. That same period, a state-of-the art higher education software now known as CEI Plus was revolutionizing the way WA state colleges managed their student services, instruction, financial and human resources activities.
Today, you can still find disco music and video games, but the mainframe-based CEI Plus will become a thing of the past with the transition to the latest version of cloud-based enterprise resource planning software from Oracle PeopleSoft.
