*Admin Tips and Tricks - How to Improve Your Data Quality (Farrah Friedrich and Mike Walter, University of St. Thomas).  Admin Tips and Tricks is always one of our most popular sessions as you can learn from users at other universities.  Our presenters this time are from University of St. Thomas  where they have been on the Salesforce trail since kicking off in November 2014.

Standard Salesforce functionality, as well as some of our customizations and installed apps, will be discussed.  
* EASY Does It - Open Source Application Solution (Kathy Lueckeman, Maryville University) - The Enterprise Application Solution for Yield (EASY) is the free application-for-anything solution that Maryville University open-sourced through the for Change grant program. The solution includes tools to create multiple, unique applications, a "builder" so that permissioned users can create their own application questions (empowering users and minimizing system administrator work), and an application administration and review process (reader). This session will include an overview of the solution with resources for implementation. 
* Powering the Connected Campus  (Zach Svendsen, Jitterbit) - With 150,000+ SaaS apps today, the success of many higher education initiatives requires surfacing critical data to Salesforce in an automated fashion and providing a tailored experience to students, faculty, and alumni. Learn how universities and colleges are utilizing integration to power that connected campus and putting Salesforce at the epicenter.
