RS3G (Rome Student Standards and Systems Group) is a self-established group of software implementers and stakeholders in the European Higher Education domain which is focused on contributing to the definition and adoption of electronic standards for the exchange of student data. This is supported by European University Information Systems organization (EUNIS). EUNIS Congresses are international events that attract a large audience from Higher Education Institutions (HEI). It is a chance for international specialists, users, researchers, decision–makers and academic teachers from all over Europe to share their experience. This edition of the annual EUNIS Congress, hosted by the University of Warsaw, took place on 23-25 June 2010 in Warsaw, the capital of Poland.
Fulcrum’s CEO, Rajesh Sinha, was invited in this event as a speaker. Rajesh walked an audience through the pioneering solution developed by Fulcrum for Higher Education sector. The solution developed has the capability to track various activities of students who are migrating to UK to pursue higher education. The solution Fulcrum thus developed was collaboration between two different Universities that run on completely different applications / systems. The challenge was to implement two completely different Enterprise Services Buses in the Universities and implement connectors to 4 different types of applications and then to demonstrate that a SINGLE reporting program could retrieve data from two Universities WITHOUT any change to the logic of the report. This solution is termed as one of the ground breaking solutions by Microsoft. Rajesh got lot of appreciation from the audience for the solution thus developed by Fulcrum. He also focused on Interoperability of services across Institutions over the Cloud environment, thereby leading the discussion to the need of Standards and Protocols within HE Sector. This was highlighted by some of the solutions that Fulcrum is building around ‘Enterprise Service Bus in the Cloud’ as ‘Internet Service Bus’.
