Project Charters: Drafts of eight OneIT project charters are available for public comment on the project pages of this website. Feedback should be directed to the Program Office and individual project leaders. The rest of the draft charters will be added as soon as they are ready. The Steering Committee is expected to approve the revised charters in early June.
Project-Management Workshop: On May 5 and May 7, about 60 OneIT project leaders and managers took part in a project-management workshop led by experts in the College of Business. The workshop was a success; the team-building and change-management sessions seemed to be particularly well received. It was great to see people energized and ready to focus on the tasks at hand.
Data Center & Server Project Progress: Some projects, especially those initiated prior to the efficiency review, already have progress to report. The Data Centers and Servers Project is a good example. Two servers from a physics research group were moved to the Information Technology Facility, along with five racks of hardware that were housed in MacLean Hall. The ITF will soon house data storage for the art and journalism departments so old servers can be decommissioned, and a high-performance computing cluster is being installed for chemistry.
ISU/UNI Collaboration Discussions: IT leaders from the three schools will meet June 10 in Ames to continue discussing collaboration opportunities.
