Other Important Information Technology Initiatives

In addition to the projects and initiatives explicitly mentioned in other articles such as the Network Enhancement Project (RAILS/TIES), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), and the University Wireless Initiative, University Computing Support Services (UCSS), Enterprise Application Services (EAS), Network Services and the Information Technology Security Office (ITSO) are currently working on several key "road map" projects that will enhance our infrastructure and provide a solid foundation for developing future services for our students, faculty and staff.  Although all of these projects are on the short/intermediate-term planning horizon, many are dependent on resource allocations (both financial and staff).
