  • "Our continuous and rapid growth in enrollment and renewed focus on student success were our main drivers for change. We had to either get an entirely new system or re-implement the legacy administrative system. After a fast yet comprehensive evaluation, we determined that Oracle offered an attractive rapid development solution and proved to be a better long-term strategic fit for our goals compared to the competition," said Shah Ardalan, vice chancellor and chief information officer, Lone Star College System. "Lone Star College System is positioning itself to be the premier college system in the country and we strategically selected Oracle to be our partner in this journey."

  • "Oracle is dedicated to meeting the unique needs of community colleges -- helping them move forward to support growth and operate cost-effectively to manage limited budgets. Like many community colleges, Lone Star College System is facing growing enrollments and realizing the limitations of its legacy systems to scale. At the same time, it is working to achieve its goal of becoming the best college system in the country," said Steve Koporec, vice president, applications, Oracle Higher Education. "We are committed to helping Lone Star achieve its goals and admire the comprehensive evaluation process it has already undertaken.
