How Salesforce Education Data Architecture (EDA) Benefits Your Institution
In our previous blog, we explored what Salesforce EDA was and how it’s related to RIO Education. In this blog, we are going to explore why businesses should be using the Salesforce EDA model.
What is EDA going to do for your institution?
Salesforce designed EDA to expand upon the standard Salesforce data model. It is possible to build a solution for Higher Education without EDA, but why re-invent and limit yourself to a custom solution? Adapting EDA will allow you to harness a vast amount of AppExchange solutions and speed up your-go live. EDA provides out-of-the-box functionality to organize your data in Salesforce. It helps higher ed institutions of all sizes connect with students, alumni and faculty in a significant variety of ways. EDA allows you the ability to store, manage, and analyse a range of Higher Education data. This range of data includes demographics, relationships, and academic records.
Example: The EDA relationship custom object tracks relationships between contacts. Their affiliation custom object tracks affiliation between contacts and other accounts. It’s all done for you!
