University Portal Project (UCONNECT)
The Office of Information Technology would like to offer services to its supported clients through a Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) approach. Strategically, this initiative will need to be implemented in several phases. The first phase will include defining and implementing a new Portal solution since our current platform is nearing end of life. Additional phases may include identity management, mobile device management, virtual desktop environment, single sign-on, etc. Requirements for each phase must be considered to ensure the portal solution will accommodate future capabilities.
- Presentation planning for Technology Discovery Day is underway.
- Results from summer survey to students, faculty and staff are being compiled and prepared for presentation and discussion with our task force.
- Results of the technical survey submitted to peer and other universities using similar technology was compiled for presentation.
- Internal software demos were designed to help identify technical requirements for a new system or system upgrade.
