Overall Status Comments
Slipping MiWorkspace Migration: Public Health has been removed from the schedule pending the financial discussion resolution with the Provost. Kines will be complete by mid­April and we have begun staff and faculty migrations in Social Work. We have completed pre­discovery activity in Music, Theatre, & Dance, SNRE, UMSI, and Pharmacy and have begun technical discovery activities in these units. Ross migration has been delayed by one month but will not affect FY15 goals. Outcome of "hold harmless" conversation the Provost is planning to have with the deans could negatively impact project schedule. BYOD: The Office of Financial Analysis has completed their review of the Business Case. Currently awaiting written confirmation from the Provost's Office regarding acceptance of the project approach followed by funding authorization from the Treasurer's Office (signed by the Chief Financial Officer). Initiative: IT Strategic Plan and Investment Roadmap

1. The President and the IT Executive Committee
(Provost, EVPCFO, EVPMA, and VP Research)
approve (and the APG endorsed) version 2.0 of the
IT Strategic Plan and Investment Roadmap.
Overall Status Comments
Slipping All updates for the June 2015 version of the strategic plan and investment roadmap have been started. Data entry for the investment roadmap tied to the June 2015 version is in progress. T&L and Research strategies marked as slipping because we are dependent on external ownership and the draft of Research has not been opened to share with us, and we have not yet lined up Barry Fishman to own the T&L strategy as the Associate Domain Steward. One additional school is complete and 2 more are scheduled for the campus outreach work. Marked as slipping because they have been challenging to schedule and we may not meet the April target date. A communication strategy for 2015, for campus and ITS, is in place and meetings­in­a­box have been started for ITS staff. Initiative: Implement NextGen Michigan Technologies

for Spring 2015 Term and beyond are now being automatically provisioned in Canvas for interested faculty to use. Issues with gradebook upload and download performance in Canvas for the very large pilot course (STATS250) continue to be addressed during the Winter Term through manual steps taken by the vendor. A fix is in progress and targeted for release this term that would be a first step in addressing the most critical issue identified as a result of the Canvas Fall Pilot Evaluation. Tools to migrate content from CTools to Canvas are being tested and a session to review the migration process with Canvas Unit Contacts and some faculty is planned in April. Project is trending upward based on the project team ability to identify
a way to store both regulated and non­regulated data with the proper access to the Isilon servers. Project Sponsors approved the extension of the building a finalized solution by April. The New date will be set based by the end of May. Some open questions that project leadership and project team needs to answer is related to the effort needed to provide a website/Portal for researchers to obtain this service. Service costs and rates have been defined and will be finalized and sent to OFA by end of April. Completed installation in the following locations: Palmer Commons, President's House, Rackham Lobby, Mendelssohn Lobby, Pierpont Commons, Alumni Center, and Power Center Lobby, Michigan Union,
Student Activities Building, Health Services Building and Hill Auditorium Lobbies Recently completed: Ruthven, Michigan League Work ongoing in Rackham, CCRB, NCRB, Bentley, Hill Auditorium and Power Center. The business case for campus implementation is under development. The proposed funding model and service changes were presented to campus stakeholders on November 19, 2014. Housing has been added to the business case. Proposed business case and funding model is complete and will be submitted March 2015.
