Recapping Ellucian Live

Last month, our team packed their bags and traveled to San Diego for Ellucian’s 6th annual user conference, Ellucian Live. E Live is always one of our favorite events of the year! It’s a great time to connect with current customers, as well as share the power of our Etrieve platform with Ellucian users from near and far.

This year, our conversations were particularly exciting as so much is happening right now in the enterprise content management space, and innovation is abound.

During our time in San Diego, a lot of conversations revolved around Ellucian’s cloud deployment options, and we are very pleased to be able to join in with the announcement that Etrieve can be fully deployed in the cloud, our fully cloud-based option for our next generation document management, electronic forms and workflow platform. Cloud is a hot topic right now and for a good reason! If you haven’t already, check out our Softdocs Cloud Blog Series, where we focus in on four core areas and shed some light on the technology. We cover technical security, job security, access and cost!

Another common discussion we had with E Live attendees centered on integration. As many of you are likely aware, Etrieve has a rich integration to Ellucian’s Banner, Colleague and PowerCampus products. One thing we were thrilled to share at the conference was Softdocs’ most recent support for the Ellucian Ethos Platform.

The integration between Etrieve and the Ethos Platform brings a standardized and simplified approach to integration for Etrieve customers. Unlike legacy integration approaches, this partnership offers colleges and universities the benefits of a customized integration without the time, money and resources traditionally needed.

As a long-term partner of Ellucian, we enjoy being able to grow alongside one another and collaborate to bring colleges and universities solutions that streamline operations, increase efficiencies and create a thriving environment for student and employee success.

Thanks for the hospitality and exciting conversation, E Live! We can’t wait to be back.
