Datatel, SunGard Higher Education forge alliance to become ‘Ellucian’
11 Apr 2012

Two education technology leaders, Datatel and SunGard Higher Education have converged to form a new company ‘Ellucian’. The major objective of this new organization would be helping institutions by investing in the primary solutions that clients have come to rely on, including Advance, Banner, Colleague, and Power CAMPUS administrative systems.

The company will also provide a broader solution portfolio to give clients more choices and capabilities to address their evolving needs and cultivating the collective intelligence of a global client community to benefit all its members, including 2,300 colleges, universities, foundations and state systems in 40 countries.

The company will celebrate the new Ellucian name again March 1-4 with 2,000 additional clients at the DUG user conference.

“Ellucian is much more than two companies coming together; it embodies our focus on helping education institutions thrive in an increasingly dynamic world,” said John F. Speer, President and CEO, Ellucian.

“Ellucian evokes the clarity and light that learning brings to life, aspects that we aspire to share in our relationships with institutions of higher, further and vocational education around the world,” said Michelle Reed, Chief Marketing Officer, Ellucian.
