PROJECT MANAGEMENT HAPPENINGS

Take a look at some of the projects we’ve been assisting with:

Transcript Capture: The purpose of this project is to enable the processing of paper, TIFF, PDF, XML, and EDI transcripts and improve efficiencies in current OnBase workflows. We are currently engaged with Enrollment Management and the Registrar’s office in this OnBase Transcript Capture (TC) and Transfer Course Evaluation (TCE) project.

Atlas ITSM: The purpose of this project is to increase support of the university's continued growth and expansion but to do so we required a more comprehensive, powerful IT service management (ITSM) solution that could scale efficiently as the university expanded. The previous ITSM solution lacked flexibility and a more modern solution was needed that could meet the requirements of campus technicians, server admins, and anyone involved in managing IT resources. This new solution is a comprehensive, holistic ITSM solution with a powerful interactive self-service portal, built-in dashboards and business intelligence, as well as a complete family of mobile apps. Initial implementation is complete and we are now moving into the creation of an enhancement project.

Microsoft SCCM: The purpose of this project is to implement the Microsoft stand-alone system for acquisition and deployment of a new System Center Configuration Manager.

Print Management: The purpose of this project is to provide a new or expanded print management service to students along with cost savings to the university.

Sys/Ops Projects:

  • HECH Replacement
  • Shibboleth Upgrade
  • Directory Consolidation
  • Identity Management (Microsoft Identity Management)

PeopleTools Upgrade: The purpose of this project is to upgrade to v8.55x due to de-support of our current version to occur in August, 2016. Upgrade planning and efforts have begun with UT Shared Information Services, with a go-live of October 15, 2016.
