Realigning the Wheel: Facilitating the Adoption of a Data-Informed Culture
We have witnessed a lot of extra effort wasted over the years in the UC system, costly endeavors to build huge and expensive one-off projects as well as efforts to build even bigger systems to consolidate and centralize these systems.This session will cover an alternative IT strategy that will make data-informed decision making more accessible for campuses. By leveraging existing campus-wide solutions and business processes, campuses can integrate and streamline them together using highly customizable platforms. We will cover some of the highly customizable platforms on our campus such as IBM Filenet and ServiceNow. We use these platforms to quickly create solutions that work with the existing solutions and data already present on UC campuses. Our presentation will cover strategies such as building web services and using web APIs to easily connect these systems. We will demo some of the solutions we have so far to show how simple, yet effective they are.
This session will be aimed towards a technical audience with some familiarity with web programming. Prior knowledge of concepts such as web services and APIs will be helpful.
At the minimum, our presentation will require basics such as Powerpoint and a web browser (preferably Firefox).
If possible, it would be nice to have Cisco Anyconnect VPN installed. This will allow us to access our existing solutions on our campus and demo them. If not, then we can pre-prepare other mediums for demonstration.
