Below are some of the key projects and initiatives the Information Systems & Technology department is currently involved in:
» Current Projects
+ - New Phone System Upgrade
Our Network Operations team has been piloting a new phone system, which supports newer voice technology like SIP and UC integration with email and other collaboration tools. The new system also has much better compatibility with cloud applications, more options for high availability and much better mobile capabilities. The pilot has been a big hit and we're looking forward to rolling this new system out to the entire campus, which would replace and/or upgrade legacy voice over IP systems and digital handsets.
+ - Online Directory
IS&T has partnered up with the Human Resources and the Office of the Provost to create an online faculty and staff directory.
+ - Beckman Hall 201 Renovation
IS&T is working on updating our learning and collaboration spaces on campus. Beckman 201 has served as a training lab for several years and is now in the process of being converted into new open study and collaboration space for students and faculty. The space is open for use during the renovation process and can be reserved by faculty for group training sessions. For more information, contact Dr. Mary Litch.
+ - Rollout of Windows 10
Over then next couple months, all staff and faculty computers will be upgraded to Windows 10. The goal of this project will be to allow users access to more cloud based services, more robust collaboration tools, and to increase system performance and reliability.
+ - Office 365 Upgrade
