Frustration with legacy ERP systems in higher education is high and still growing. On-premise systems have been heavily customized incurring a high level of technical debt, and while migration to SaaS-based systems seems inevitable, transition costs and risks are substantial. Creating a microservices/API integration layer that allows the creation of microservices offers a survival strategy for the next five-ten years. We will outline potential strategies, including a new effort to develop a standardized set of interactions that have the potential to improve agility, reduce costs, and provide a clearer path towards SaaS ERPs.
Speakers: Michael Berman (California State University), Jack Suess (University of Maryland, Baltimore County), Linda Feng (Unicon, Inc.)
Date/Time: Wednesday, October 31, 2:30 PM - 3:15 PM
LTI Advantage Security Workshop
A key principle driving the evolution of Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) is better security. LTI Advantage ensures user privacy and learning data security by utilizing the latest security model based on industry best practices. This session will explore how LTI Advantage addresses institutional concerns about learning data security between the LMS and learning tools. Attendees will also get the latest on LTI Insights, a new project bringing LTI and Caliper Analytics together for increased trust in the data passing between learning tools and platforms, and better transparency into tool use on campus.
IMS Global members are invited to attend this half-day workshop on the strengthened and flexible security in LTI v1.3 and LTI Advantage. Lunch will be provided. Space is limited, so you must register in advance (login required).
