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.
