DePaul University went live on CS9.2 on July 23, 2018. We dramatically changed the look and feel of Campus Solutions by rolling out Fluid Homepages for employees and students. We customized tiles and in some cases, created our own navigation collections. We also rolled out Fluid Class search for student self service.

Over the twenty years since we implemented what is now Campus Solutions 9.2, we have developed many scripts and methods to migrate and update data in our environments. Recently we have been exploring the Application Data Sets and the Data Migration Workbench and we will present several use cases that will show how these old processes have been improved with the use of Application Data Sets.
