Single Identity Management System

  • This project status remains at urgent status (I.E. Yellow).  For AD this effort remains on hold until the non-technical aspects of the project have been resolved.  For META, progress has resumed.  The team continues efforts to resolve duplicate user accounts.  Now that all 3 Identity systems have completed their integration with the 'doesUserExist' web-service, no additional duplicate user-accounts are being created.  The portal interface for users with duplicate accounts to select their single user-account name has been implemented by both KUL and KUMC.  Planning for renaming the duplicated user-accounts is ongoing.

Leverage Software Purchasing

  • This project is complete.  We will continue to track progress on this initiative.

Increase MFD Usage

  • The Increase MFD Usage team has completed standard operating procedures for optimizing MFD usage across campus, and is now implementing these processes in lockstep with the Reorganize and Redefine IT Staff and organization team. MFDs are slated to replace laserjets in some lab areas of newly centralized units over winter break. Work is ongoing for the MFD Findings Document.

Server Centralization

  • Efforts are focused on the following processes: Network Security Scans, Server Registration, New Server/Service Requests and Contract Renewals.

Reorganize & Redefine

  • KU IT continues to work with the School of Architecture to discuss IT staff centralization.

Network Optimization

  • Network teams identified a dependency project to configure the wireless topology on the KU-L campus scheduled over Winter Break, which needs to be completed before we continue discussions on an integrated wireless network.  Recommendations on the future of Network Optimization have been submitted to KU Leadership for review.  Based on the differences in the remaining initiatives, a recommendation to separate the scopes of wireless configurations and monitoring has been submitted, along with the next steps of action for both initiatives.  Project teams will need to determine feasibility of solutions when direction is determined.

Scanning & Document Workflow

  • This project is complete.

Campus CRM (Constituent Relationship Management)

  • We are moving forward with driving students to the updated portal as an entry point to CRM.  All FY15 features within the project will follow a monthly release schedule provided to Leadership.  The most recent release included the ability for users to access HR/Pay utilizing Single Sign-On.  Communications to campus will occur strategically as features are released and grouped.
