11/5 – iSiS Training for Staff Announced

Yesterday afternoon UML Staff members who have ISIS access were invited to training via an email. There are approximately 320 employees from across campus who are staff users of ISIS. While the changes to ISIS are not overly significant in terms of functionality, there are big changes in the look and feel. Hence, thecampus business owners determined that it was best to require all staff users to attend one 3 hour training class. This class will show users the newest features and show them how to access online support.

If there are questions about who was invited please email UML Training.

Faculty and Students will have the opportunity tobe orientated to the system via presentations andonline communications. Some information is already available on the respetive training/orienation pages for UML Faculty and UML Students.

10/22/09 – Campus Testing of Self-Service Completed

Faculty and students participated in the testing of the ISIS 9.0 environmentover the last few days. There were no major issues identified and all key business functions worked as designed. A few people identified some enhancement suggestions and those are being tracked for future consideration.

A common theme we heard from users was that the user interface was improvedand that end users shouldn’t have any difficulty transitioning to ISIS 9.0.

Business offices have also been involved in testing and most of that is also going well. There are a few issues still being worked by the project team in Shrewsbury, but so far we do not see any roadblocks to a December go-live.
