Overall Satisfaction with Ellucian Ethos Framework

Ellucian Ethos is used by other software vendors to connect to our central system and get the data that they need. In the past, what we had issue with is the fact that with every software solution we purchased we had to build custom integration tools to be able to communicate with our ERP system. Ellucian Ethos bridges this gap. It allows us to connect two systems that don't know anything about each other, yet they are able to communicate.
  • 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
  • It allowed us to connect to other systems without having to pay consultants and spend an enormous amount of time creating an integration solution
  • It reduced amount of "IT time" needed on projects
We have not used any other product similar to this, but for us, it made sense that the first product we tried was made by the company who developed our ERP system because they know the system inside/out. Solutions made by other companies that only look into documentation does not mean they would be able to create a product that could do such integration well.
We live in the world where one system cannot solve all of your business problems, because of that we want to make sure that information is exactly the same across multiple systems and Ethos allows this to happen. Your identity and everything related to you will be exactly the same in all systems across the board. With cloud solutions coming up at the speed of light, it is imperative that every solution you acquire has accurate data in order to be efficient and cost-effective.
