ITPG Campus Calendaring Work Group
The Campus Calendaring Work Group was initially formed by volunteers from the ITPG to discuss what will follow our current campus-wide CorporateTime (aka "Oracle Calendar") product. CorporateTime will become unsupported in August, 2013, so discussion as to the direction to take seems prudent at this time. Others representing various organizations on campus will be added to the work group as the discussion progresses.
The Campus Calendaring Work Group presented their report and recommendations to the IT Planning Group at their October 20, 2011 meeting. The PowerPoint slides are attached.
On October 28, 2011, Jamie Sonsini presented the following explanation of the Campus Calendaring Work Group recommentations and report.
We believe that the quality of service provided by our SaaS vendors exceeds that achievable by a locally provisioned service.
The SaaS vendors offer fundamental services (Email and Ecalendaring) that meet or exceed our basic requirements.
Unlike the University, they can commit sufficient resources to focus on key complementary areas such as security and the integration of their offering with surrounding technologies.
