Description:

The enterprise is supported by a 20 year old Client Server application (EFS - Enhanced Field System) running on 32 non-integrated stand-alone installations at the early learning coalitions and the Redlands Christian Migrant Association. The system has none of the modern user interface improvements (no mouse, dependence on function keys and memorized codes, etc.) and no decision support features. EFS is merely providing a repository for recording decisions made and other results that take place outside the system.

Business processes, reports, and system use are not standardized among the coalitions. Work is labor-intensive, error prone, and has limited fraud prevention safeguards. Years of operation without system supported business rules for data entry validation has resulted in the need to cleanse data that is difficult or impossible to consolidate. Because the systems are not integrated, creation of statewide enterprise reports for headquarters staff is expensive and time consuming.
