An Architecture Proposal for Academic Software in Adventist Universities

Main Article Content

Omar Soto
Harvey Alferez


The Seventh-day Adventist Church (SDA) has a large number of universities world-wide. These institutions have in common some relative urgencies to establish standard software to facilitate their academic processes. Some of them buy academic systems which do not satisfy their needs completely. Another option they have is to contract outsourcing companies to develop software to fulfil theirs needs. However, this option is expensive and may require a lot of time to materialise. With a repository of academic software components, every Adventist university will be able to develop its own academic software in a fast way, with high quality and complete requirements.
