Several areas throughout our college spent the better part of August gearing up for a new academic year. Likewise, IT teams within the OCIO and CFAES were hard at work during this period, collaborating to move units within the college to new Managed IT Services, and provide solutions for unique mission-specific requests.
Network improvements will drive many solutions, and continue to be a main first focus within CFAES – we are excited about the implementations that have taken place, and well as others slated to take place over the next few months.
As a follow-up to our last update, we are continuing to examine the question of “How will we pay for these services?” A Cost Allocation Strategy workgroup has been established within our college, and will meet several times over the next few months to continue shaping options and recommendations.
Attached is the September update of our progress with the CFAES IT Transformation Project. As a reminder, updates on the CFAES IT Transformation can be found at https://it.osu.edu/cfaes.
