Description:  Florida State University uses a universal identifier known as the FSUID for logging into the student legacy systems and PeopleSoft HCM. It is a combination of PERL and Java utilizing mainframe, DB2 and Oracle databases. With the implementation of Campus Solutions which will become the master data management hub for student, employee and visitor data at FSU it was necesssary to reconfigure this process. The new process must register constituents into Campus Solutions and message bio-demo data to HCM. It must also keep the legacy tables in sync throughout the two year implementation of all the Campus Solutions modules. The new process will utilize Constituent Web Services and SOA to provision accounts for Campus Solutions, LDAP, Active Directory, Blackboard and Exchange.
