One Auburn

OneAuburn centralizes stakeholder data and communication tools in one place and enables data-driven decisions and personalized experiences to all university stakeholders. As a key goal of the 2019-2024 strategic plan, OneAuburn is the process by which Auburn University can work together to share data and support student and employee success.

Key Components of the oneauburn initiative

Successful Outcomes

Adoption of Academic Org

Adoption of the academic org

Over half of Auburn’s colleges/schools have adopted Salesforce and are leveraging clean, more accurate data from the data warehouse.

Data Warehouse Integrations

Data Warehouse Integrations

Applications including Qlik and Qualtrics are now integrated with the data warehouse making those tools more powerful. These integrations help corral data into a more useable, real-time format.

Established Data Governance


Stakeholders across campus are realizing the value of standardized definitions and best practices that are promoted by data governance.

More Effective Communication


Marketing Cloud provides Auburn’s first enterprise level communication tool/preference management center. The platform ensures communicators have full access to powerful tools to better engage with their constituents.

Data Awareness and Sharing


Stakeholders from Academics, Advancement, Admissions, and Human Resources are actively identifying ways to share data and improve processes.

Promoting Innovative Thinking


Colleagues from across campus including Advancement, Athletics, and Admissions are helping to remove data silos by building API integrations with the data warehouse. This provides a network with future integrations.

Return on Investment


Efficient use of the data warehouse eliminates redundant applications as more CRM functionality becomes available. The financial savings from fewer technical applications is redirected toward other resources.
