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UCLA’s legacy financial systems were designed decades ago using now-outdated technology.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.
Using state-of-the-art cloud computing technology, the Ascend Project will streamline business processes to improve efficiency, ease of access to data, and increase productivity across UCLA’s financial systems.
Ascend Project Goals
- Transform financial business processes, policies and technology to increase operational efficiency
- Enable easy access to financial information
- Implement a scalable system that will grow with the University
- Enhance usability, mobility and self-service capabilities
