Spring 2015 – Cycle 6

03/30/2015 – 04/10/2015

We have a growing number of web based tools to support workflow and sharing information in the college. It is getting to the point where it is hard for faculty and staff to keep track of them all. We are looking for ways to consolidate portals, standardize interfaces and cross reference information so we can increase functionality while making the tools more approachable.

As we continue to build out tools that support operations by exposing UW institutional data we need to regularly check we are respecting relevant policies and protections. As our systems become more extensive we need meta-tools to document the data exposed and who has been given access.
