Data and SIS Auxiliary Resources

The SIS Modernization Project will replace MSU's current SIS with Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.2. Any application currently utilizing SIS data, either directly from the mainframe or from existing data warehouse tables, will need to be optimized in order to properly function after the transition to Campus Solutions. These ancillary applications are collectively known as SIS Auxiliary systems.

Visit the SIS News SharePoint site to access information, processes, and responsibilities associated with discovering, assigning, assessing, scheduling and completing remediation work for items in SIS Auxiliary systems. Find specifically:

  • Data Timeline and Frequently Used Tables: document that describes when data will become available in the data warehouse, conversion scope notes, frequently used tables, and report and derived views
  • SISCS Data Documentation and Mapping: Learn more about SISCS data documentation and mapping via MSU’s Information Governance Catalog tool at aboutdata.msu.edu. The IGC tool serves as MSU’s data dictionary for Campus Solutions. The IGC contains column definitions, mapping tips for legacy SIS, and data protection/classifications to help us protect MSU data. To learn how to navigate the IGC, sign up for the self-paced training module on D2L: IGC in D2L.
