Workday Go Live Moved to June/July 2017

As announced by Renee Wallace in the ASMP 2.0 Town Hall on April 19th, 2016, the Workday Go Live date has been moved to June/July of 2017. The news was well received by the community. By moving the date, UT Austin will be going live with Workday version 28, which will include critical functionality important to campus’s business needs. The June/July 2017 Go Live date will allow additional time for configuration and testing of the added functionality for the campus community.

2016 UTDIGITAL Preservation Symposium

  • Intersections: Identifying Transformative Collaborations at the University of Texas at Austin
  • 2nd Annual Campus Digital Preservation Symposium April 29 / 1:00 – 5:00pm

The 2016 UTDIGITAL symposium seeks to bring together information technology professionals, archivists, curators, librarians, faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, and others willing to share their experiences and contribute their perspectives on digital preservation and long-term access.

There will be curated panels, workshops, selected demonstrations, lightning talks, posters, and time for folks to network. One panel discussion will address Institutional Data management and long-term preservation, providing perspectives on the gaps between what campus is currently doing and what may be the ideal support, services, costs, and functions for our Institutional Data management.

Please plan on joining us to hear the moderated panel discussion with Cam Beasley and ASMP 2.0 team members Rich James and Kristi Fisher. The discussion will provide insight regarding a data in the cloud environment, as well as vendor-hosted products when dealing with such issues as data control: who really owns your data when the contract ends, and what does it cost to access the data?

ASMP 2.0’s App Mod to Support CSU’s IT Modernization and Transition Needs

The Application Modernization (App Mpd) team is increasing its direct assistance to colleges, school, and units (CSUs) by providing short term resources to further modernization and transition efforts: they are currently working with the School of Pharmacy, the Division of Housing and Food, and other CSUs to facilitate common approaches for campus’ modernization efforts. The information derived from these initial support efforts will be beneficial to all CSUs across campus. This support approach is based on feedback from the community, and is approved by University leadership. Additional resources available on the ASMP 2.0 website.

For more information, or to discuss how the ASMP 2.0’s App Mod can help you in your modernization efforts, please contact us at
