Oct 25, 2017, Summit: OculusIT is pleased to announce its engagement with the Southern University System for the deployment of Eliminame.

Southern University and A&M College is a comprehensive institution offering four-year graduate, professional, and doctorate degree programs, fully accredited by SACS. Currently, the University is a part of the only historically black Land Grant university system in the United States. Each of the five campuses is deeply rooted in their respective communities and is responsive to regional, intellectual, cultural, and labor needs by supporting economic and workforce developments that bring benefits to the state and region. To suit their student requirements, the University has decided to use Eliminame, a product solely developed by OculusIT.
Eliminame is a duplicate entry (PIDM) detector that works exclusively on Ellucian® Banner®. Multiple entries (student/staff details, attendance records, event registrations, new admissions, fee payment records etc.) from various portals used in educational institutions could inadvertently lead to duplication of data in Banner®. Eliminame scans and identifies duplicate PIDMs using a common matching algorithm, allows the user to merge them into a single entry, and further deactivates or deletes PIDM copies from the database.

The scope of this engagement includes:

  • Deployment of Eliminame on Southern University System’s Banner® instances that serve the following sites:
    • Shreveport – Southern University at Shreveport
    • New Orleans – Southern University at New Orleans
    • Baton Rouge – Southern University and A&M College at Baton Rouge (flagship school), Southern University Law Center in Baton Rouge (law school), Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center in Baton Rouge
  • Providing training, patches, updates, and modifications to the software
