OU Campus was launched in 1999 using the cloud computing, software as a service (SaaS) product delivery model. It was developed by OmniUpdate, a privately owned company headquartered in Camarillo, CA. OmniUpdate was started by software developers Tom Nalevanko, Lance Merker, and Yves Lempereur (developer of BinHex 4.0).
The product uses a push technology. OU Campus can be accessed via the cloud - also known as software as a service (SaaS). The underlying platform of OU Campus is developed in Java, and uses XSLT 3.0 for template transformation. OU Campus uses open standards, including XML, HTML, and CSS and is extensible through APIs. As a decoupled system, OU Campus works with any server-side technology (e.g., PHP, ASP, .NET, ColdFusion) and for templates uses XHTML/HTML5 and CSS, as well as XML/XSL. The templates are customizable so that developers can create sites using popular web development techniques including Responsive web design to adapt to all screen sizes and devices. OU Campus does not store page content in a database; rather, each page is stored as an XML file on the CMS server. It is compatible with Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari. OU Campus' push technology architecture requires a separate database for some applications that use interactive content such as forms and surveys. These applications can be handled through the Live Delivery Platform (LDP), which provides a server-side module for plug-in application architecture. LDP is accessed and managed through OU Campus.
