Consulting and IT services provider Mahindra Satyam has launched a cloud-based Oracle Campus Solution for higher education institutions in Malaysia.
The company's Malaysia Global Delivery Centre will support South East Asia regional rollout in the near future, said Mahindra Satyam vice president & business head, ASEAN, Ram Ramachandran. "This is the first time such a complete cloud-based service for student recruitment, enrolment, administration to student financial information management is offered in the country."
"Cloud-based services are a prime focus for Mahindra Satyam and the launch of Oracle Campus Solution on Cloud plays a key role in expanding our market reach in Malaysia," said Ramachandran. "This service - the first to be launched in the Malaysian market by an IT services company - and will be delivered out of our Global Delivery Centre at Cyberjaya, Malaysia."
He said Mahindra Satyam would provide complete end-to-end solutions including hardware, application software from Oracle, implementation services and ongoing management. Support services to customers will also be provided in a virtual Private Cloud Model.
"For many institutions of higher learning, large capital investments in student life cycle management solutions deter migration to the next level of competence," said Oracle Practice head, Asia Pacific, Manish Goenka. "With Oracle Campus Solution now available on Cloud, we have a highly effective and robust solution offered at an attractive price. Rapid adoption of these global best practices with minimal upfront capital investment will help these institutions align themselves with Malaysia's vision to be the regional educational hub."
