Technology Architecture

The Technology Architecture team will provide the production and development environments for the university to support cloud, package, and custom applications for administrative units and their interfaces. The new architecture will allow University administrative developers to focus their IT skills on solving business problems, not figuring out architecture, tools, and environments. Leveraging a common set of tools and components will help CSUs integrate and coordinate with the diverse entities across campus.

Current Status:

  • New tools and services have been selected, approved, procured, and are being developed and implemented across campus. To learn more, visit the Admin IT Wiki [EID required].
  • The team is identifying and developing training opportunities, coordinating with departments to help the campus manage the change to new systems. In the future the team will also redesign the Software Developer Training Program.
  • We are working with the Application Modernization team to help departments migrate and decommission applications from the mainframe as we introduce new tools and services.
