The University awarded a contract for service oriented architecture to rSmart Group, Phoenix, AZ for $31,200.
Illinois State University is investigating an open source solution (Kuali Rice) as an initial step in moving towards a Service Oriented Architecutre. This solution contains a set of open source tools (JAVA, Apache Web Server, Tomcat Application Server, Eclipse development environment, etc.) that have been consolidated by the Kuali foundation into an integrated development environment for creating and consuming enterprise services. The rSmart Group has installed the Kuali Rice components on a server and configured that server according to our specifications.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration. Because the rSmart Group configured the Kuali Rice server we will be using, we believe that they are the only vendor capable of providing effective training for our staff in the use and application of the Kuali Rice infrastructure in our environment using that server.
