Description:

The Tseng College at CSU Northridge, were experiencing many bugs, for many years with our home-grown application system based on AAWS. We are using the system for more than twelve years, and we could see the fragile system held together with lot of band-aids. Every new application cycle, that needed lot of maintenance, we were growing more afraid. Every maintenance Pack was packed with uncertainty, every new program meant load of maintenance and there was no scope of any enhancements. We needed change, but any new system meant lot of resources, money and most importantly load of new business process adoption.
That is when, and big thanks to HEUG forums, we discovered CY2’s application form. From very initial meetings we realized how simpler the implementation of SIS based system will be compared to any other external web systems. For starter, we could keep our current backend admission business process, including CRM and dashboards. And also, there was no additional licensing fees. So, we made the decision and in barely ten months with zero additional resources, we are on new application system which is fast (way fast), mobile friendly, up-to-date and comes with annual maintenance.

We (Business Analyst and Admissions Lead) will share with you our legacy pains, our decision to migrate, our implementation journey and our status now.
