» Current Projects

Below are some of the key projects and initiatives the Information Systems & Technology department is currently involved in:

+ - Desktop Backup

IS&T will deploy a new software program called Crash Plan Pro, to all Staff and full-time Faculty desktops and laptops.  This software is designed to automatically backup your entire computer system and as files change.  The way it works, Crash Plan Pro scans your computer then makes an encrypted copy of that data which is then backed up on secured cloud servers.  All backup servers are located within the US and the data cannot be viewed, at any time, by another individual.  In the event you experience a hard drive failure, the backed up data can quickly be restored to a new hard drive with very little downtime.

+ - E Visions

Evisions is a web based software that provides fast and easy to find resources and procedures for conducting research. Evisions will help ensure that all research will follow th guidelines and remain compliant with federal, state, and institutional governing bodies.

+ - Tech Hub

You may have noticed that DeMille 150 is undergoing some construction.  This area, at the end of the main hallway, will be the new Chapman University Tech Hub. The Chapman University Tech Hub will be a place where students, faculty, and staff can go to receive training on specialized software and hold technical consultations.  It will also be a place to meet and collaborate with colleagues around technology.

+ - Concur Travel and Expense

Concur will be replacing the current PeopleSoft Travel and Expense reporting.  This new service will make scheduling trips and recording expenses as you are planning your trip. This and many more features will be announced our tentative go live date in Summer 2018.

+ - Research Infrastructure

IS&T, in partnership with the Office of Research, is currently holding discussions around campus to evaluate current and future research and creative activity needs.  This effort is expected to produce recommendations around future technology and staffing investments, as well as the publishing of documentation around currently available resources.  If you’d like to participate in providing feedback, please contact Phillip Lyle at plyle@chapman.edu.
