The Luminis Platform gives individuals personalized 24/7 access to information and services, previously limited by location or hours of operation. It integrates with Banner, so users can access the information and services they need through a single sign-on. Information from the Banner administrative systems helps to personalize the Luminis Platform, and users can work through Luminis to supply information back to Banner.
The Luminis Platform functions as the foundation of a unified digital campus through a combination of portal features, enterprise applications and infrastructure. Combined with the Luminis Content Management Suite’s web content management capabilities, the Luminis Platform can showcase a consistent institutional brand and fresh web content, giving your institution a vibrant web presence. Because the Luminis Platform is based on open standards, it can incorporate your legacy systems and future technology choices. This means that you do not have to replace existing systems and can enhance them by making their combined services easily available through the Luminis Platform.
The portal features in the Luminis Platform create an online environment that can be customized by every member of the campus community. Users can access the portal at any time and from any place. Information is "pushed" into an individual’s portal in channel format. Some channels may be mandatory based on an individual’s particular role on campus, such as the English department channel for all English majors. Users can subscribe to other channels such as news channels, or information published by specific campus organizations.
The Luminis Platform provides a set of enterprise applications that streamline communications, provide direct access to campus services as well as resources, simplify e-learning and create customized forums that enable campus groups to collaborate online.
Infrastructure components in the Luminis Platform provide common services that form the internal structure of your unified digital campus. This set of standards-based services manages users, directory information, security, and authentication to deliver a seamless and secure online experience for all campus constituents.
