What Is The Academic Enterprise Initiative (AEI)?


What is the aei
What is the AEI? direction. It is intended for information purposes only, and may not be incorporated into any contract. It is not a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decisions.

  • A platform for providing robust integration of Higher Education applications and technologies

  • An out of the box integrated solution for the entire academic enterprise

    • Batch and Real Time

    • Service Oriented Architecture

    • Business process driven (BPEL)

  • Built around two pillars

    • Student Information System

    • Course Management System

    • Other apps then span the gaps as needed by institutions


A multi phase project
A Multi-Phase Project direction. It is intended for information purposes only, and may not be incorporated into any contract. It is not a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decisions.

  • Phase I will provide services and administration for Enterprise data needed by LMS

  • Phase II provides Enterprise services beyond that needed by LMS, servicing other applications needed by Higher Ed institutions

The AEI and Sakai


The aei and sakai
The AEI and Sakai direction. It is intended for information purposes only, and may not be incorporated into any contract. It is not a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decisions.

  • Partnership with Unicon announced on August 1st of this year to deliver the next generation of academic enterprise

    • Unicon is a well-established, long-time Sakai community member currently providing implementation and training for Sakai

  • Partnership provides

    • OOTB integration between Campus Solutions and Sakai

      • A distribution of Sakai optimized for OOTB integration with the Oracle AEI

    • A fully vendor supported version of Sakai


Why sakai
Why Sakai? direction. It is intended for information purposes only, and may not be incorporated into any contract. It is not a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decisions.

  • Built by higher education for higher education

    • Need for stronger pedagogical tools likely to be better driven by this model

  • Strong framework orientation provides flexibility and long term vision for evolution


Sakai for oracle
Sakai for Oracle direction. It is intended for information purposes only, and may not be incorporated into any contract. It is not a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decisions.

  • What we think it will be:

    • Sakai packaged with adaptors/connectors, possibly some branding, configured for optimal use in the AEI

    • We will be working within the community source model to create enhancements and modifications as part of the Sakai community

  • What it will NOT be:

    • A branch or deviation from core Sakai


Support for the aei
Support for the AEI direction. It is intended for information purposes only, and may not be incorporated into any contract. It is not a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decisions.

  • Oracle will support all Oracle-delivered elements of the AEI

  • Unicon will provide support for Sakai for Oracle through their Sakai Cooperative Support program

  • Partnership provides coordinated end-to-end support

AEI Architecture Using Sakai


Integration challenges
Integration Challenges direction. It is intended for information purposes only, and may not be incorporated into any contract. It is not a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decisions.

  • Problem #1: Data in common

    • Need to define and replicate data to ensure “single source of truth”

  • Problem #2: Lack of Common Structures

    • Need to define and standardize Enterprise-wide objects for different vendors within the Academic Enterprise to support

    • IMS Enterprise model is a start, but needs semantic definitions


Phase i sis to lms integration objectives
Phase I - SIS to LMS integration: Objectives direction. It is intended for information purposes only, and may not be incorporated into any contract. It is not a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decisions.

  • Define generic information and service model to enable SIS to LMS integration (moving towards IMS adoption)

  • Enable Campus Solutions(CS) to support generic service based model

  • Create adapter to connect generic integration to Sakai, if needed

  • Test integration with Sakai as reference implementation


Architectural goals
Architectural Goals direction. It is intended for information purposes only, and may not be incorporated into any contract. It is not a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decisions.

  • Phase I: Enable standards-based data exchange between CS and Sakai for Person, Courses, Enrollment and Grades

  • Allow for Independent Operation (Loosely Coupled)

  • Maximize Uptime


Sakai cs integration logical architecture
Sakai-CS Integration: Logical Architecture direction. It is intended for information purposes only, and may not be incorporated into any contract. It is not a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decisions.

Integration models
Integration Models direction. It is intended for information purposes only, and may not be incorporated into any contract. It is not a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decisions.

  • Asynch “Pull”

    • Sakai quartz job to “pull” snapshots of data on a regular interval

  • Synch “Pull”

    • Use of Sakai apis such as CourseManagementService

    • However this implies reliance on remote data access

  • “Push” (Event Driven)

    • When data changes at source, communicate with target to make corresponding change

    • Use of Sakai apis such as CourseManagementAdministration


Aei approach
AEI Approach direction. It is intended for information purposes only, and may not be incorporated into any contract. It is not a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decisions.

  • Provide initialization capability

    • Schools can run snapshots as often as they want (nightly)

    • Ensures no missed updates

  • Provide incremental event driven capability

    • Allows near real time data synchronization

    • Occurs independent of running transactions on both source and target systems
