Data Governance and Management

Data Governance and Management

The project's goal is to deploy a common integration layer to enable data sharing between campuses and departments, and to define a CU systemwide data strategy to improve access to data and standardize reporting. Two work streams have been identified for the project: data governance and data catalog development.

Time and Labor

Time and Labor

The Time and Labor project aims to replace the home-grown MyLeave system. Ultimately, the project's benefits will include streamlining regulatory and compliance changes, addressing existing calculation engine issues in MyLeave, centralizing time-tracking tools and reducing costs, providing a stable platform, and allowing CU to move away from the current custom-built application that is difficult to support.

Completed Projects

UCCS Recruitment and Admissions CRM

UCCS adopted Salesforce’s Admissions Connect, which supports students from initial interest and enrollment to graduation. Additional benefits included streamlining application reviews, providing real-time data and insights, and driving applicant engagement with more personalized communications.

Grants Optimization

Accomplishing grant optimization allowed the university to mature in the use of the Grants module and streamline departmental tasks for all four campuses.

HCM Wave 3b

The campuses benefit from a more stable HCM system, which is less prone to data issues and is supportable by CU staff and Oracle.  Additionally, the system is now set up to take future enhancements from Oracle rather than only using the SmartERP-built custom forms.
