Update and Phone Survey for Information Technology Collaboration at the Claremont Colleges

Posted: February 9, 2016

Dear Scripps Faculty and Staff:

Technology is a key resource at The Claremont Colleges (TCC) and we work hard to provide effective and efficient solutions for the campus community. You may be aware that TCC launched a project last fall in conjunction with IT leadership from each campus that seeks to bring collaboration and integration of technology across the colleges and the Claremont University Consortium to better serve faculty, students, and staff.

Called IT@TCC, the project focuses on the areas of networking, telephony, information security, identity access management, disaster recovery, and data centers.

As part of this process, we ask that you complete a brief survey. Your answers will help us to determine the requirements for an updated and unified telephone/telecommunications solution that will best serve the faculty and staff at The Claremont Colleges. If you would like to take part in a focus group on this subject, please let us know by providing contact information at the end of the survey.

Additional progress is being made in other areas of the project as well:

  • This past fall, representatives from an external consultant group met with individuals and held a series of intensive meetings and workshops to identify the overall objectives and needs for a shared network.
  • Technical and strategic working groups are meeting regularly to develop a more specific plan on how to implement those recommendations.
  • An assessment of the security and critical infrastructure systems is underway.
  • Working groups are meeting to explore implementation strategies for the areas of information security, and identity and access management. Those recommendations are expected later this spring.

You can get more information about the project or can ask the project management team a question by visiting the IT@TCC website.

We are excited about this important project and look forward to updating you on next steps.

 

Thank you,
