About UM IT Projects

IT Projects is intended to provide a campus-wide approach to identify, prioritize, and successfully execute a portfolio of technology initiatives and projects that are aligned with UM’s strategic goals and educational vision. Project management leadership is responsible for establishing and implementing best practices for the benefit of the University in a way that encourages collaboration, standardization, and overall improvement in our educational community.

Current UM IT Projects

Managed Print Project

UM IT and Fisher's Technology have been working together to identify opportunities to increase efficiencies, reduce costs and improve print technology for staff and students. Through a managed print program, we can better serve the needs of everyone on campus as well as significantly reduce our annual expenditures, energy consumption, and eliminate the need to purchase hundreds of costly desktop printers across campus.

Banner Modernization Project

The UM IT Enterprise Technologies division is working with Ellucian to update our Banner software architecture and processes. The Banner Modernization Project (BMP) will fix and improve current processes as well as introduce new systems which will increase efficiency and capabilities for employees and students. One component of this project will be a move to Ellucian Managed Cloud services, which benefits all of UM with increased uptime and availability of some of our most critical services.
