OCIO resources spent numerous hours on the HR/SIS PeopleSoft upgrade last year, but that shouldn’t overshadow the numerous other projects that were brought to market in 2014. Here are 10 of the most significant things you can do today -- that you couldn’t before 2014.

OCIO and Enterprise Security Teams are busy working toward our Top Goals and are making tremendous progress. To follow is an update to our top priority projects.
OCIO TOP FIVE
Data Center Move
As we continue the work of moving our current data center to the State of Ohio Computing Center (SOCC), we have already moved about 6% of the racks, allowing us to retire those racks at Kinnear Road Center (KRC).
Last year the Technology Commercialization Office brought together developers from OCIO, the College of Arts and Sciences Technology Services and University Communications to create the University Code Repository (UCR), a hub for the code written across the university. The platform is Ohio State-centric and allows for openly sharing source code for other developers to use or manipulate. Coders from all areas of Ohio State have realized the true value of UCR, as the number of users grew and projects more than doubled, jumping from 519 to 1064.
Ohio State is excited to be offering a new tool to students and instructors traveling in the U.S. and internationally and for visitors to our campus.
On December 3, Mike Hofherr, Vice President and Chief Information Officer, and his leadership team will discuss the evolution of academic and administrative technology at the university to develop and implement innovative and secure solutions to meet the current and future needs of faculty, students and staff.
This panel discussion includes:
We are all breathing easier now that Carmen is back online. Our ODEE partners continue to provide the campus community with as much information about last week's outage as possible, as explained in the following ODEE news blog article.
On Sunday, November 9, we took Carmen down for a routine maintenance task - expanding the space available for uploaded files. During that time, we encountered an error in how the different parts of the system communicate with each other and immediately stopped the task. The error was significant enough that it required us to restore from a backup copy of Carmen.
We’re excited to have upgraded the university to the newest versions of the PeopleSoft Human Resources (HR) and Student Information System (SIS). These new versions of our HR, Payroll and Student applications are now being used across the enterprise by the Office of Human Resources (OHR), Payroll, Enrollment Services and The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, as well as many other colleges and departments.
The HR/SIS Upgrade began on Friday, July 4 and will continue until the morning of Thursday, July 10.
