2015-2016 Technology Projects

As the Office of Technology completes its 2014-2015 Annual Report, we look forward to the future and the projects we plan to complete over the next year.

Infrastructure
  • Skype for Business
  • Expand the wireless network
  • Replace a Storage Area Network (SAN)
  • Dual-authentication 
  • Additional security protocols
Enterprise Applications
  • Colleague Student Planning
  • Oracle iRecruitment
  • Nintex Workflow & Forms
  • TouchNet Marketplace
  • Terminal Four

Client Services
  • Analog to digital upgrades in classrooms & videoconference
  • Technology Lab Coordinators
  • Learning Technologists
  • Service Catalog

These projects are only possible through the strong partnerships the Office of Technology maintains across the University. Our department is dedicated to offering a portfolio of services that support operations, excellence, and innovation. Enterprise Applications builds upon the strong support Infrastructure develops and maintains. Client Services interacts with students, faculty, and staff to support all of the services offered by our department. 

Some of these projects keep the business of the university running; some grow our capability; and some of these projects position TWU to expand its global presence and reach. 

Message from the CIO
TWU is no longer just poised for greatness; we have collectively leaped into our future. All across our campuses there are wonderful and exciting projects underway. TWU is an awesome place to work. I can’t imagine a better place to grow personally, contribute to a more worthy mission, or be inspired by exceptional colleagues!!
Robert Placido, Associate Provost & CIO


TWU Technology Hearts the SECC!

After reaching 100% participation by the deadline set by donor, Dr. Bettye Myers, the TWU Office of Technology continued to show its generosity and teamwork by sponsoring two tables at the SECC Chancellor's Lunch. Dr. Robert Placido and Dennis Hoebee each sponsored a table for eight guests.


New to the Office of Technology, Lacey Monarch (far right), business manager, enjoyed the company of the business office student assistants, Danya Rangel-Rivera and Patrice Briggs.

Brittany Bruno, senior integration analyst, and Lena McLain, applications developer I, pal around at the luncheon. 

The OOT Owls will be back in action at the Charity-Ball on October 22, and the Office of Technology will have at least two chefs competing in the Chili Cook-Off on September 14.
