From Carol L. Smith, CIO
The following provides information about the IT projects planned for this spring and offers some quick updates to help you wrap up from the fall’s slate of activities.
Before you get to those topics, though, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the past year of upgrades, updates and transitions in IT at DePauw. Over the past 12 months, we adopted a new email system, replaced the entire fleet of printer/copiers (80+ of them), upgraded the campus network system, added off-campus VPN access to network resources, implemented a new print/copy accounting system, and issued enhanced ID cards to the DePauw community. Whew!
Now that everything is nearly complete, we are excited for what these upgrades will provide for supporting communication and collaboration, enabling better remote access, encouraging sustainability, and improving security in many aspects of our campus IT activities.
Thank you for your patience and perseverance in helping make these projects successful!
If you have any questions about these (or any other IT-related projects), please don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
Topics in the following include:
- Campus desktop/laptop inventory project
- Upcoming system maintenance and planned e-Services outage – March 19-22
- Google Apps – New services coming
