The institute has implemented various modules from Oracle���s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions and Oracle Applications with the help of Citagus India Private Ltd, a leading IT solutions and services company.
Prof Ashoke Dutta, director IIM Shillong in a statement said, "In today���s fast changing and highly competitive environment, we are determined to provide quality education to our students. IIM Shillong has taken a big step to implement a comprehensive IT solution with the help of Oracle and Citagus. We have sought to reduce manual processes as much as possible, and provide access to real-time information for students and the college management and faculty."
He added, "This will enable us to focus completely on education programmes for our students and excel in quality and accessibility. It will put us at the forefront of the technology adoption initiative envisaged by the government of India for higher educational institutions in the country."
According to the statement, general manager, Asia Pacific Education Sector, Oracle Corporation, Mr David Redden remarked, "I must say we are extraordinarily impressed with how quick this institution has moved to first of all select this product and then to implement it and my belief is that, this is the fastest implementation of this solution by any other customer in the world."

IIM Shillong���s IT implementation has automated all its backend processes. This has improved time management, data accounting and the efficient management of human resources and staff/student feedback. The net result has been to free up more time and resources, and provide better information for management and faculty to enhance their core mission of delivering education programmes to the institute���s post graduate students.
