Io Consulting, Inc. and LumenData today announced a partnership to deliver expanded services to the Oracle Higher Education community. Io, a company known for providing premier consulting services for Higher Education, and LumenData, the company that co-developed the Oracle Higher Education Constituent Hub (HECH), are joining forces to advise the Higher Education sector on how to best move forward with the new opportunities presented by advances in the Oracle offerings for universities.
"Today's economic climate and changing demands are putting a tremendous amount of pressure on Higher Education institutions to deliver more service to a wider variety of constituencies" said Steve Kish, President, Io Consulting.

This combination puts us in a unique position to advise Higher Education customers on the most strategic and cost effective way to move forward in light of today's challenges."
Immediate offerings include a set of planning and implementation services designed to help higher education institutions quickly install the 'hub' and begin utilizing its capabilities to meet strategic IT and campus objectives including improved data quality, enhanced Identity Management, and expanded Business Intelligence/Data Warehouse decision making analytics.
The HECH is tailored specifically to help higher education institutions create complete, accurate, and single views of their constituents, which include applicants, students, employees, alumni, faculty and staff. These records can then feed the numerous systems on campus, positioning campuses to respond to critical needs quickly and accurately.
"We are pleased to team with market leader, Io Consulting, to provide Higher Education Customers with leading edge-services around Oracle's HECH product, data quality, identity management and business intelligence products.
