Initiative CU-SIS: Automated Duplicate Resolution Since CU went live with Campus Solutions, all 4 campuses have resolved duplicates manually which is an inefficient, time consuming process for the university. CU needs an automated process that will resolve duplicates systematically by moving and deleting data. The proposed change/options will allow users to use an automated process for duplicate prospect records that will resolve the duplicate records systematically by moving/copying data from the duplicate record to the surviving record and eventually deleting the duplicate person ID when the system can based off the data standard in place. 3 - ExecutionGreenPhillip CurryInitiatives
Initiative - DataStage Upgrade 11.7 The DataStage upgrade will bring the ETL tool back into a supported version so if IBM support is required for any issues, it will be covered under our current support agreement. The value for the Data Warehouse customers is the data environment will be up to date and accurate for their reporting and analytic needs.3 - ExecutionYellowLisa DamboiseInitiatives
Initiative - Wireless Upgrade As part of the technology refresh program we will be upgrading the wireless network environment at the Systems Administration, Advancement, and branch locations. Stronger wireless signals and expanded coverage are just some of the benefits customers are expected to see as part of this upgrade. HA configuration, which isn't currently setup, will be addressed during this initiative and we will maintain current support for the back-end infrastructure. We will look to take advantage of new features and functionalities to ensure a secure, reliable, and performant wireless experience.2 - PlanningGreenDesmond GrantInitiatives
Initiative - Self-Service Password Reset Business Justification: Reduce the overall number of support calls involving password resets. During peak seasons, password resets frequently becomes a crucial bottleneck for the service desk and a large support burden leading to a loss of productivity. Additionally, this service will allow our users to reset their password outside of normal support windows.2 - PlanningGreenToby LutzInitiatives
Initiative - Network Remediation - FRGP Upgrade This initiative will: • Increase UIS processing site bandwidth to campus customers and Internet services. • increase 1800 Grant connectivity bandwidth to campus customers and the Internet. • Replace charge-back MOE connectivity cost from UCD with 10Gb/s private BGP peering on new circuit. • Allow private peering with UCB/UCCS at 10Gb/s in future at two locations (BGP fail-over). • Allow bandwidth increase between UIS and our ISP Front Range GigaPop (FRGP) immediately to 1 Gb/s, with easy expansion to 10Gb/s in increments as required in future. • Remove MOE circuit costs from contract. • Allow Internet2 (I2) route balancing to maximize bandwidth efficiency.2 - PlanningYellowLonnie MaynardInitiatives
Initiative - ESA Improvements ESA currently pulls contact information for eRA users from HCM. There could be multiple contacts for a single user, including personal/affiliate contact information. This initiative will improve the ESA integration by pulling in email addresses and phone numbers that are more aligned with the business needs of eRA users. These improvements will reduce time and effort needed to make corrections in eRA and ensure communications are sent to the appropriate email addresses.2 - PlanningGreenJordan WightInitiatives
Initiative - HCM Automation by using PTF In support of HCM and QA automation strategy represented in Annual plan. HCM Services Value Statement: PTF (Peoplesoft Test Framework) will enable HCM Services to automate both System Integration Testing and User Acceptance Testing of both major enhancements as well as any new changes applied to an environment. It will allow us to complete more tests with a greater level of accuracy and a faster execution time. This is critical for testing maintenance windows (Non-Production and Production), Oracle CPU’s and as well as when environments are refreshed. Above all it will enable us to adopt changes more rapidly when applying features and functionality found within PUM Images. This benefits the end user who experiences all the benefits of the latest PeopleSoft technology within our system. HCM Development Value Statement: PTF provides an ability to perform system regression testing easily and effectively. Automated regression testing help developers perform following tasks much faster and accurate. -Baseline testing before maintenance windows -Post maintenance windows validation -System overall regression testing for critical system changes such as TBT transactions MyLeave, Open Enrollment etc -PeopleTools Upgrade -PUM updates, especially for CPUs QA Value Statement: Work in partnership with HCM Services and Development teams to support automation strategy. Additionally, QA testers will gain PTF knowledge and expertise to support development and execution of scripts for current project such as HCM as well as future Oracle projects. Additional Value from a PTF perspective: o No licensing costs o Enhanced test accuracy with minimal manual intervention o Higher Test Coverage o Users can validate recorded actions against PS browser-based application o Tests can be moved between different PeopleSoft systems o Security is the same as PeopleSoft applications—role-based2 - PlanningGreenSasi SunkariInitiatives

PSC Data Mart and Reporting Dashboard Project This project will help the Procurement Service Center (PSC) control costs and align expenditures to operating revenue. PSC uses a significant amount of data from various source systems to monitor and manage spend activity. The implementation of a new integrated data mart and interactive dashboard that measures, monitors and manages spend performance will drive operational efficiencies and enable a self-service reporting capability across the University. Dashboards are used to summarize spend data in one integrated view and create insight with the opportunity to better judge performance and predict results early on. The creation of a dashboard eliminates the need to interpret complex and unstructured data sets and displays the data into an easy to use format. End users can visualize spend data about their department at the line level or summarized into one integrated view; and can also be customized to display the information that is relevant to an end user. PSC’s goal of the dashboard is to expedite the delivery of monthly performance reports across the organization and reduce the time it takes end users to interpret and review results.2 - PlanningYellowCindy KraftProjects
