IBM and an Indian software provider have partnered to deliver a cloud-based platform to universities for managing student services, curriculum and accounting functions.
Kasbah Systems’ Genius UMS platform is built to provide university administrators, faculty and students access to web-based information services.
“Indian educational system is undergoing transformation and is at the forefront of adopting new technologies to impart better education,” said S. Rajiv, Kasbah Systems Software executive director.

IBM says the Kasbah technology works to help users analyze and monitor attendance, examination and assessment data in real time and is designed to integrate with public and private cloud models.
