Cal Answers is an analytical tool allowing UC Berkeley to view centralized, integrated information from various campus systems.
Student Information Systems (SIS) is a student technology project focusing on consolidating and modernizing over 100 existing information systems into one integrated software solution.
Part of the SIS project is creating the Campus Solutions database, which pulls data from various sources. This means the student data is in one place rather than the disparate collection of source databases used until now.
This affects Cal Answers because it affects where our student data is coming from. This will not have a direct impact on most users. It will have some impact on those who run ad hoc queries.
