The Office of Information Technology (OIT) has scheduled a town hall forum to inform the University community about it's current web hosting services redesign project for 10-11 a.m. Friday, Jan. 13 in Science Teaching and Student Services room 131A.
The session also will be accessible online via UMConnect,and the recording will be made available after the event. No R.S.V.P. is necessary.
Web hosting services provided by OIT have grown organically over time, resulting in a fragmented support and delivery structure. We are currently working on a comprehensive road map for our web hosting services, and better defining our partnerships with our customers and units.
The goal for this project is to reduce redundant web hosting services and provide a common enterprise platform with a larger feature set. These common good services, which enable University units to post their own content online, provide the University with web content that is vital to its mission of teaching, outreach and research.
The town hall forum will provide an opportunity for the University community to explore the redesign process, and for OIT to provide overall project information and explain the upcoming RFP vendor process. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide OIT with user feedback.
