Enterprise Applications

Enterprise Applications manages the lifecycle of university software applications. This includes overseeing user requirements, software architectures, computer programming, software testing and maintenance, comprehensive patching, integration, and project and release management. This a comprehensive and complex process which involves the work of many campus departments, users, and internal work teams. In addition to developing and managing university applications, the team works closely with campus application owners to develop security plans, business continuity plans, and disaster recovery protocols.
