  2. 2. What do you think we need to be researching further? <ul><li>? </li></ul><ul><li>Feel free to fill out our feedback form </li></ul><ul><li>on our website at www.ciu.edu/helpnow and let us know </li></ul><ul><li>your thoughts on technology and future needs. </li></ul><ul><li>Following are some of the items </li></ul><ul><li>we have been investigating further. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Desktop as a Service <ul><li>Desktop as a service (DaaS), also called virtual desktop or hosted desktop services, is the outsourcing of a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to a third party service provider. Typically, DaaS has a multi-tenancy architecture and the service is purchased on a subscription basis. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Considering options for student users in connection with student lab improvements. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Will consider for full time faculty staff based on further research. </li></ul></ul>

Increase/Improved Wireless Infrastructure <ul><li>Researching Areohive and other wireless solutions. </li></ul><ul><li>With the increase of wireless connectivity demands reported from tests as well as survey results from students, we are exploring ways to expand while making the campus wireless infrastructure efficient. Although wired connectivity is still available, we recognize the demand for wireless connectivity in a safe and reliable manner. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Identity Management <ul><li>Identity management (or ID management , or simply IdM ) is a broad administrative area that deals with identifying individuals in a system (such as a country, a network, or an organization) and controlling access to the resources in that system by placing restrictions on the established identities of the individuals. Identity management is multidisciplinary and covers many dimensions </li></ul><ul><li>An identity management system refers to an information system, or to a set of technologies that can be used to support the management of identities . </li></ul>
  7. 7. Microsoft Systems Center <ul><li>Microsoft System Center solutions play a central role in Microsoft's long term vision for helping IT organizations benefit from self-managing, user-centric, dynamic systems. System Center solutions capture and aggregate knowledge about the infrastructure, policies, processes, and best practices so that IT pros can optimize IT structures to reduce costs, improve application availability, and enhance service delivery. </li></ul><ul><li>These integrated and automated management solutions enable IT organizations to be more productive service providers to their businesses. Aiming to enable self-managing, dynamic systems, System Center solutions close the gap between development, operations, and IT—connecting people, processes, and tools—by evaluating dependencies and optimizing business process performance from deep inside the operating system, applications, and composite services and workflows in both physical and virtual environments </li></ul>
  8. 8. What is SharePoint? <ul><li>What is SharePoint ? </li></ul><ul><li>- A collection of technologies that combines the best features of email, project planning, calendaring, and office productivity tools, and combines those capabilities with the functionality of the web so individuals located in different geographical locations can collaborate as efficiently as those in the same office. </li></ul><ul><li>What is Collaboration Technology ? </li></ul><ul><li>- A software that enables a group of individuals to achieve a common goal by facilitating information sharing and communication in one central location. </li></ul><ul><li>Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 </li></ul><ul><li>- A business collaboration platform for the Enterprise and the Web that enables you to connect and empower people through an integrated set of rich features.
