2018 Session

Title: The IT Project Intake Process – Enabling Collaboration Across Campus
Co-Presenters: Alan Silver, Steve Devoti
This session will with start with a brief overview of the process that was rolled out last October and share statistics to show how the process is working.
We will also go into more detail about what actually happens when a project is submitted and what interesting things have been learned by having projects reviewed by others.
We will describe some of the projects that have been successes, how we were able to match up people with software and vice versa and how it helped with creating some broader discussions of solutions.
