As February comes to a close, ITS News wraps up two months packed full of news about comings and goings, technology resolutions and the many activities of the Infrastructure & Operations and the Communication Technologies groups at Information Technology Services.
We talked with Priscilla Alden about her retirement plans and what she’ll miss most about working for UNC-Chapel Hill ITS as Assistant Vice Chancellor for User Support & Engagement. If you couldn’t make her January 28 retirement party, make sure you check out photos from the event courtesy of our own Brad Taylor of Frontline Support Services.
We learned more about Jim Gogan, his role and his group’s challenges through a two-part profile that ran just weeks after he became Interim Director of Communication Technologies. In February, we heard more from Gogan about specific issues and projects: the network upgrade, software-defined networking and the networking impact of The Internet of Things.
In a video by our student-videographer Isabella Bartolucci, Frances Dykstra, Assistant Vice Chancellor for ITS Enterprise Applications, discussed what she wants to accomplish with ConnectCarolina in 2015.
In February, we shared a feature that you can expect more often in ITS News in coming months—a customer case study. A senior associate director at the Office of Undergraduate Admissions explained how ITS Enterprise Operations is “crucial to keeping the wheels of admission running smoothly.”
