Higher Ed Technology Professionals and Users Dare to Be Different at Kuali Days 2016 in San Diego

SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kuali Days, the conference for those interested in enterprise-level, cloud-based, open-source software for higher education, is open for early-bird registration. The 12th-annual event, held in San Diego, November 14-18, will bring together the Kuali Foundation, company, community institutions, and those interested in learning more about alternatives to replacing legacy enterprise information systems.

"Kuali Days is the anti-lemming ed tech event," said Joel Dehlin, Kuali CEO. "Old technology handcuffs higher ed to the past, and many institutions are locked into expensive situations. Kuali is opening new, affordable, modular alternatives for ERP evolution. Those who dare to be different, ask the hard questions, enjoy working with others, and love beautiful design, will appreciate this truly immersive event."

Kuali Days offers a robust program to get smart about all things Kuali, including informational sessions for first-time attendees to gain a deep understanding of Kuali products, and sessions for sharing knowledge among veteran Kuali institutions. Sessions cover technical as well as functional topics.

One Gathering, Five Tracks, One Executive Forum, and a DevCon
Three tracks focus specifically on Kuali solution areas: Student, Research, and Financials. One track crosses product lines to cover technology management, operations, and support. The XD Lab will dive into the design experience of Kuali software. A forum is exclusive to higher education executives. And a new program, Kuali DevCon, is a rich conference on its own, focusing on a broad range of hands-on tech training for those who love to code.

"Our special extra-early registration has already put us at nearly 70% of projected capacity, so we are looking forward to an incredible gathering" said Jennifer Foutty, Executive Director of the Kuali Foundation. "Kuali Days reinforces our ongoing commitment to the Kuali mission of helping colleges and universities lower the cost of administrative operating systems to put more of higher ed's resources toward teaching and research. It is very rewarding to see the interest in Kuali grow as that mission resonates more than ever."
