Introducing the Higher Education Data Architecture (HEDA)
Built in collaboration with our partners and customers in Higher Education, HEDA is a community-driven data architecture and set of best practices designed to configure Salesforce out of the box for Higher Ed. HEDA makes it even easier for institutions of any size to become a Connected Campus, enabling richer and dynamic, 1-to-1 engagement across the student journey.
Foundation for the Connected Campus
Confidently become a Connected Campus by implementing a community-driven data architecture and set of best practices designed to help institutions successfully represent constituents across the student journey.
Innovate with Salesforce faster than ever
Accelerate deployment time and configuration with objects and functionality created specifically for Higher Ed. Quickly create 360-degree student views and engage students with personalized, multi-channel communications throughout their journeys.
Expand Salesforce Enterprise-wide with a flexible standard for Higher Ed
Leverage a newly established data standard and managed package to meet the needs of any institution. Institutions can continue to deliver value across campus by building on core objects, fields and automation and integrating with a growing number of Higher Education AppExchange apps that are standardized on HEDA.
Participate in a Community of Innovators
Join a community of colleges and universities looking to collaborate and change the way Higher Ed institutions use technology. HEDA is an open source, community-driven data architecture focused on facilitating collaboration to solve some of the industry’s biggest challenges.
