Three large school districts in Oregon acquired a single instance of a Student Information System (eSIS) several years ago. At the same time, PPS was underway with a significant data warehouse project needing to be used by CESD and MESD. The eSIS system was supported by three IT organizations. VIE was brought in to assess and apply a best practices development and support model for both applications. The result of the assessment and findings was an interim model for the creation of a single entity made up of members on special assignment from all three organizations along with a best practices framework. VIE has been asked to lead the next phase of the project.
