Application Portfolio Management, Year in Review 2017
Completed application inventory
- Created an initial inventory of software applications purchased and developed at UI that allowed IT leadership to identify duplicate applications and eliminate redundancy.
- 120 applications were refactored or retired.
- Turned management of the portfolio over to the CIO Office so ongoing maintenance is aligned with project-management and software-procurement activities.
- Suggested a maintenance strategy to poll IT leaders twice a year to update listings.
Implemented new online course-assessment tool
- With Assessing the Classroom Environment (ACE) Online, the UI longer needs to maintain outdated software used in the old paper process. Paper costs are reduced, and staff time is saved because colleges no longer need to distribute and collect evaluations.
Enhanced student record system
- New academic advising functions to the student-record system eliminated duplicate systems and are making life easier for students and employees. The new features allow students to schedule advising appointments in MyUI; previously, they used different systems to schedule with various advisors. Before the enhancements, administrators used email or other systems to exchange information about students; now, they can easily share through MAUI.
The project was completed in late 2016.
