What is Archivum?

Archivum is an intelligent business process management platform (IBPM) that will automate MCOM's academic and business processes and help faculty, staff and students complete tasks and processes as efficiently as possible. 

The University of South Florida is pioneering the use of intelligent business process management (IBPM) through the use of Appian’s cloud-based software platform. Developed using an approach that focuses on quickly releasing products, Appian enables users to get feedback for enhancement in a timely manner. The goal is to release good products quickly, not perfect projects developed over long periods of time.

Archivum is user friendly and integrates with all of our existing systems such as Banner, GEMS, etc. It acts as a central system where faculty, students and staff/administrators can complete tasks or paperwork and easily track the progress and outcomes. Some of the benefits of Archivum include:

  • Accessibility – Archivum works on a variety of web interfaces, PC & Mac, and mobile devices. There is also an app supported by iOS and Android devices.

  • Ease of use – The design is fairly intuitive. Each faculty and student will have their own “page” and from it can easily navigate between tasks and programs.  

  • Access to Information – Archivum pulls data into records that are powerful yet simple. The student record will provide a variety of information in one place for faculty and students alike. 

  • Customer-focused – Archivum's goal is to develop applications and features that will improve the day to day tasks faculty, staff, and students must complete.

  • Transparency – Archivum allows the user to track the status of any requests they have pending in the system, and allow MCOM to analyze processes for ongoing improvement.
