ITANA Face2Face Tools of Trade

UC Davis

Created an Administrative Services Map with eight domains. Each domain has a Domain Convener. All the Domain Conveners gather on a single governance board.

  • Academic Personnel Adminstration
  • Enterprise Asset Management and Planning
  • Student and Curriculum Support
  • Finance
  • Information Technology
  • Alumni and University Relations
  • Research
  • Payroll and HR

Just bringing this fruition.

Currently moving to Kuali Financials – this is a “big rock” project that they stage. Above this is their SOA, ESB and Infrastructure layer. With IdM above that. Then Portal.

Use the roadmap to help guide the School and Department works. Hope to align the work in the School and Departments with the roadmap.

Having a transparency, rich communication and agree on principles helps with the alignment across domains and the schools and departments.

If you look down the road, you could see that the IT domain would grow as more stuff moves into the infrastructure layer. This would also allow for more modular developments.

The roadmap is application centric – the infrastructure layer should have its own roadmap.

The production shop is looking at this tool for mapping the flows of data files in batch jobs.

Limited to the amount of information that they can reasonably gather and manage with a 6 month refresh rate.
