The Office of Information Technology (OIT) facilitates research, enhances instruction, and supports administrative operations by providing quality leadership, services, and resources in information technology for the University of Alabama.
One of the many services that OIT provides is developing websites, using Content Management Systems (CMS), for their clients such as UA departments, organizations and professors. There is currently no standardized business process for OIT to develop and deploy of web pages. This is inefficient and causes time delays and low project intake numbers. Our team is to evaluate the current processes and recommend the business and technical changes to create a more efficient development environment.
The MIS Project Team will create a repeatable process to assist OIT in achieving its new customer-centered strategic initiative, by improving their client throughput time and their service offerings to The University of Alabama faculty, staff, and students. To achieve this, the OIT Capstone team will do the following: Analyze OIT’s current process flow and CMS; evaluate CMS options, hosting solutions, and determine future capabilities; recommend CMS solutions, business process changes, and hosting solutions and implement CMS solution, process changes, and handoff training materials.
The University of Alabama MIS program allows students to work on real projects that provide real value to real companies. Students learn to leverage people, processes and technology to solve problems and meet the challenges of today’s businesses head-on.
