Technical Architecture Update and Timeline

ASMP 2.0 is constructing a new technical architecture as a key component to the Application Modernization program and replacing the mainframe with a more updated technical ecosystem.

The Admin IT Wiki has been updated with comprehensive information on the technical architecture and the Services to be launched, along with a timeline of Service Availability, to support your unit in effectively planning for this transition. For more information, visit the Admin IT Wiki.

Funding Answers on Technical Architecture for your Unit

With the implementation of the new ASMP 2.0 Administrative Systems Technical Architecture, there has been great interest in the cost individual CSUs (Colleges, Schools and Units) will bear when utilizing the new architecture. The goal is to provide a cost-neutral architecture to CSUs that supports central administrative services; other CSU-supported services may be charged to the CSU, as is done with the current cost model. Visit the Admin IT Wiki for detailed information about Administrative Systems Technical Architecture Services that will be offered as Common Good.

New Tool – The IT Readiness Coordinator Network

ASMP 2.0 is excited to announce a new forum, the IT Readiness Coordinator Network, designed to assist the Admin IT community as we approach Workday Go Live in January 2017; the decommissioning of mainframe applications; and other modernization efforts across campus. Meetings are scheduled to start this month and then occur regularly throughout 2016.

The IT Readiness Coordinator Network is a two-way communication tool to support CSUs in managing modernization transitions, including the implementation of the new technical architecture components within their units. For more information, please visit the Admin IT wiki or contact ASMP-App.Mod@austin.utexas.edu
