  10. 10. 10 Aurora Vision Objectives Guiding Principles Key Performance Indicators Replace the FAS Personnel Information Network, ASPerIN, with a new system that facilitates staff and academic appointment processes while ensuring: • Existing staff and academic processes continue to be supported after the ASPerIN decommission. • The new system is user-friendly and supports staff and academic processes in a streamlined way. • Modern software development technologies and infrastructure are used to produce a sustainable system. 1. Upgrade the system to use streamlined processes, updated business rules, PeopleSoft-focused data model, and an easier and more logical user interface within the allocated budget. 2. Decommission the ASPerIN application and database, including migrating historical data and remediation of data dependencies on ASPerIN data across FAS applications. 3. Create a governance model to ensure adequate resource allocation and continued oversight aligned with the strategic priorities of FAS and HUIT leadership and business owners. 4. Migrate infrastructure to an off-premise cloud solution. (HUIT Strategic Goal) 5. Establish a change management program. Create training materials and online help tools. Roll out communication and ongoing training and support to enable a smooth transition of FAS and SEAS staff to Aurora. 1. Stable cloud-hosted system(s) in place that successfully manage staff and academic transactions for FAS and SEAS with streamlined processes, updated business rules, accurate PeopleSoft- focused data, etc. 2. Successful decommission of the ASPerIN application and database without affecting the ongoing performance of other FAS applications. 3. Governance committees in place and making decisions about resource allocation, application lifecycle planning, changes to the system, and new functionality. 4. Fewer customer support tickets and production bugs as compared to ASPerIN. 5. Increased user satisfaction, fewer data errors and decreased action throughput time. 6. Project is completed within the allocated budget. 1. The primary goal is to replace ASPerIN. Implementation of new functionality will occur in subsequent releases, assuming prioritization from governance committees. 2. Direct system integration will be maximized/optimized across Harvard systems, such as PeopleSoft, Campus Solutions, etc. Deliberate decisions will be made regarding functionality that is in PeopleSoft vs. Aurora. 3. System architecture will promote the use of modules to ensure flexibility in managing the lifecycle of different types of functionality, ex. Annual Salary Increase Process (ASIP) module. 4. Agile principles will be used to develop the application(s). Business users and HUIT will partner to complete requirements definition, prioritization, and testing. Functionality will be delivered in iterative releases. 5. HUIT will use modern technologies and best practices in software development, with a focus on building a sustainable system for FAS, SEAS, and HUIT. 6. The project will be managed to stay within the allocated budget. Use streamlined processes, updated business rules… and an easier and more logical user interface Direct system integration will be maximized/optimized across Harvard systems, such as PeopleSoft, Campus Solutions, etc. Create a governance model to ensure adequate resource allocation and continued oversight System architecture will promote the use of modules to ensure flexibility in managing the lifecycle of different types of functionality
