On July 21, Far Eastern University (FEU) hosted the contract signing for its Enrollment System Migration project. This aims to move the original FEU automated enrollment system, started in 2000 as a joint system development project with SQL*Wizard, to a more modern platform allowing the use of new and better technologies.
Along with acquiring new Linux servers and the setting up of a disaster recovery site, the project involves the migration of the Oracle database from version 8i to 10g, and the use of Oracle DataGuard for data replication as part of FEU's disaster recovery strategy. Once again, FEU tapped its partner of choice, SQL*Wizard, to help them in this endeavor.
“We are very excited to be working with FEU once more. Our partnership spans almost a decade now. This repeat business is a testament to our strong commitment to excellent service and our focus on our clients’ satisfaction,” says SQL*Wizard Managing Director, Dinah Salonga.
The July 21 event also saw the kickoff of user acceptance testing for the migrated Enrollment System application. SQL*Wizard’s project team met with the school’s department heads to discuss the project and advise them of what to expect from the new system.
