Training for CastIron and Appworx – should be considered for the training planSSB & INB modifications – should be considered for the training planJob submission process – writing jobs to be kicked offAdobe Flex – need training to support FlexReg and Effort certification
Training – FGAC training and setup needs to be identifiedProject Planning & timelines – need to discuss this with Mike B. and team. Identity Management – need to consider future state of this. Can we use PPAIDEN or continue to use JES for new person creation?Provisioning – how do we re-engineer provisioning services to use ERP instead of peoplesoft (see ENTMAST interface spec)?

Web Services can convert your applications into Web-applications. Web Services are published, found, and used through the Web. Web Services Components ◦ Web services are application components ◦ Web services communicate using open protocols ◦ Web services are self-contained and self-describing ◦ Web services can be discovered using UDDI ◦ Web services can be used by other applications ◦ XML is the basis for Web services
Basically Web services mitigate the application integration crisis. It helps integrating applications at a significantly lower price point than any other integration technology. It’s a new kind of middleware based on XML and the Web. XML and the Web help solve the challenges associated with traditional application-to-application integration like heterogeneity. They are platform and language independent. Web Services has following advantages: ◦ Exposing your API onto a network Connecting Different Applications ◦ Low Cost of communication ◦ Support for Loosely Coupled Applications ◦ Web Services are Self Describing using WSDL ◦ Automatic Discovery using UDDI ◦ Business Opportunity to grow your business
AcademyOne, Inc., the OpenEAI Software Foundation, and N2N Services are working successfully with postsecondary institutions in the state of South Carolina under the aegis of the South Carolina Transfer and Articulation Center (SC TRAC) an initiative to increase student transfer success.
The goal of this project is to promote the deployment of web services that provide students access to their prior coursework within the context of other web applications and not just the Academic History Web Service. The project will work to make all such services useful to the providers of these new student service applications using semantic web technologies for interoperability. However, there are simply no web services that make prior coursework available for many student information systems, and that is where the OpenEAI Academic History Web Service steps in to fill this gap.
iTransfer application allows universities to integrate transcripts from transfer students with school’s catalog and requirements Adobe Flex based application that talks to the backend ERP database using WebServices Some of the WebServices developed ◦ PersonQueryService ◦ InstitutionQueryService ◦ AcademicHistoryUpdateService ◦ ..many others (over 75 services developed)

An Integration Services package that includes programs, graphical user interface, and custom database tables that will be installed in the school environment The NSC Secure Connector package, a fully packaged Web server for consuming the incoming transcript request from the Clearinghouse and invoking a Web Service response back to the Clearinghouse. The connector provides the following: ◦ Authenticating the incoming transcript request (verifying the Clearinghouse digital signature) ◦ Digitally signing the outgoing transcript order response (status updates and/or and electronic PDF transcript for delivery) ◦ Validating the XML request and response ◦ Mapping the transcript request and response XML documents to/from XML documents that the Integration Services understands ◦ Interfacing with the Integration Services
