Conversion check of the Student Information System
Fontys has implemented a new Student Information System (SIS). The data was converted by the supplier from the old SIS to the new system. The conversion check had to be carried out by an external party.
The name Fontys is derived from 'fons', which is Latin for 'source'. By using this reference, Fontys as an institution aims to be a source of knowledge for its students.
Main aspects of this data reconciliation
DX carried out the conversion check of the new SIS. DX has provided insight into the correctness and completeness of the data migration by comparing the source and target environment. In addition, data from the Education Executive Agency has been used as reference data.
