Framework Agreement with DXC Technology

In June 2020, EduCampus announced the signing of a ten-year Framework Agreement with DXC Technology to provide a new digital Student Records Management System (SRMS) for its Institute of Technology and Technological University clients.  

Under this Agreement, DXC will partner on this system modernization initiative with Ellucian, the higher education software and solutions company. DXC and Ellucian have worked together for more than 15 years, delivering services and solutions to the higher education sector in Ireland.  

The Agreement provides for the managed support, cloud-hosting, and implementation of the latest Ellucian SRMS (Banner) software platform to current and future clients of EduCampus. In addition, it provides a contract mechanism for other educational bodies to take advantage of the additional functionality of this new platform. 

NUI Galway becomes client of EduCampus

NUI Galway signed a Client Services Agreement (CSA) with  EduCampus on 24 June, 2021.  This CSA allows NUI Galway to draw down on the EduCampus framework agreement with DXC Technology. 

NUI Galway will use the CSA to replace the current Student Records Management Solution (SRMS) with the Banner technology provided for in the framework agreement. 

The new SRMS application will be hosted on a DXC built environment which resides on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform.  DXC will use Ellucian Banner Student and supporting products and tools to meet the business needs and requirements of NUI Galway.
