Promising, but still a work in progress

Pros and Cons

  • Ethos Integration obfuscates database access from the developers and functional users.
  • Ethos Integration provides common-denominator data model between different systems on campus.
  • Ethos Integration has good management tool - API Management Center.
  • Ethos Identity allows easy federated access with our Shibboleth IDP provider.
  • Ethos Integration - The traditional Banner API library is still much superior to the one available in Ethos. Not all APIs are available in Ethos.
  • Ethos Integration - Performance is not robust enough under the pick load.
  • Ethos Identity - The latest version is difficult to configure in a cluster-failover set-up.

Ellucian Ethos Framework: great features for existing clients

Score 8 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • Out of the box integration: As an existing Ellucian customer, having a system that is already built is spectacular.
  • Customization: We can take various other sources and create models for those or add them to existing models
  • Analysis: Provides a feature set that is often difficult to obtain for smaller companies.
  • Cost: Basic integration piece is included for free, analysis piece is extra
  • Operational reporting: This does not replace or provide an easy platform for operational reports or warehousing. It would be nice if they provided a full stack.
  • Learning curve: Training and documentation are minimal.

Great solution for "unknown" integrations

Score 7 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • It allows connection between systems that are completely different
  • It allows you to use workflows in terms of if one thing happens in one system you can "notify" multiple subscribers to take actions
  • It has analytics to provide you insights into your applications
  • It is expensive
  • Getting Ellucian Ethos does not mean you get all functionalities, other modules like workflow and analytics have to be purchased separately
  • Takes a while to set it up
