The Ascend Project Launches at UCLA

UCLA is happy to announce the launch of the Ascend Project, which aims to modernize UCLA's aging financial systems with Oracle Cloud.  

Ascend is a comprehensive, multi-workstream initiative that has a planned duration of two years, culminating with the new system's go-live in July, 2021. 

UCLA’s legacy financial systems were designed decades ago using now-outdated technology. Today’s technology continues to evolve rapidly. As one of the world’s most prestigious public research universities, UCLA and its financial systems must also evolve.
