Kuali Financials Upgrade

Kuali Financials is a comprehensive software suite that serves as the University’s financial system of record for accounting and other fiscal operations. It relied heavily on Kuali RICE, a standalone application, for identity information, permissions, and workflow. These applications operated separately, and the substantial communication between them was limited to a service bus. The recent upgrade contained a number of bug fixes and some cosmetic enhancements, but more importantly, it unified Financials with RICE. This enhanced performance by streamlining the architecture and efficiently combining functionality. It also maintains the University at an up-to-date version of the environment, which positions us for our upcoming transition from an on-premise implementation to the KualiCo cloud-hosted one.  More information about the UConn financial infrastructure is available at financialapps.its.uconn.edu.
