The OIT Project Management Office conducts many projects for campus partners including construction projects, network upgrades, as well as software and system implementations. Below are just a few project highlights.
Security Projects Program
This project is focused on analyzing the need for and implementing various security tools on OIT critical servers and applications in order to better secure the data residing in/on them. The goal of this project is to provide a more secure environment for the personal data of UA students, faculty and staff.
UA Sci Net
This project consists of the implementation of the OIT components of the UA SciNet as specified in the NSF CC*DNI Grant Proposal. It includes procuring, deploying, and testing a dedicated 40Gbps network in up to seven buildings to be determined but to include Gordon Palmer Hall, NOAA National Water Center, and Cyber Hall. It will include integration of the RC2 platform.
Video Conferencing Solution
UA is seeking a reliable, and secure, video conferencing solution to be compatible with the IITS-provided platform which supports both conference rooms equipped with video conferencing systems as well as individuals who wish to stream from a desktop.
Policy Development Management System
Through this project, our team is working with the OIT unit EDAS to develop an interface workflow to submit, approve and store University policies. Upon completion of this project, UA will have a streamlined process to be able to create and utilize University policies.
Our office has worked with the OIT Security team to implement DUO two-factor authentication to students, faculty and staff at UA.With the implementation of DUO, OIT can better secure accounts from remote attackers. We’ve also worked with the OIT unit EDAS to apply DUO to many campus resources including myBama, Crimson Mail and Campus VPN.
