Electronic Application Systems Infrastructure
Electronic applications are indispensable tools for teaching, learning, research, administrative and student services, and communication.
Central IT supports a variety of electronic applications vital to the campus, including email, a learning management system, telephone services, and a wide variety of web services and applications. The suite of web applications includes vendor software, open-source solutions and locally developed applications.
UM has remained on the leading edge of web technologies. In 2004, Central IT embarked on a web portal project aimed at providing single sign-on to a variety of secure web services. The portal, branded as "OneStop", aggregates and integrates data and web services from multiple systems and sources (including Banner), and extends functionality to users that was not previously available. OneStop continues to grow and evolve to help the University meet student success goals.
