Web services get boost from upgrades

The Office of the CIO and Enterprise Information Technology Services recently overhauled the computing hardware that supports a number of popular Web services at UGA.

“One of the greatest advantages to the upgrade is greater efficiency and faster processing for the Web services we support,” said Russell Hatfield, an application analyst specialist in Administrative Development and Data Management, a division within EITS.

Under the direction of Steve Kane, interim associate chief information officer, ADDM is continuing to expand its role as technology partner and provider of state-of-the art Web-based services for students, faculty and staff at UGA.

“Providing integrated data services in partnership with offices of the provost, vice president for business and finance and others is a very important role for ADDM,” said Kane.

One of the more significant Web services projects currently under development is UGA’s preparation for reaffirmation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. EITS is developing a Web site to demonstrate electronically the university’s compliance with comprehensive standards and core requirements based on SACS principles of accreditation.
