In September 2015, the Office of the CIO introduced the eSignature service. Many departments have already transitioned to this faster and paperless authorization process for a myriad of documents used for daily university business.
A U.OSU information page has been put together to help you learn how your area can take advantage of this service. Bookmark the u.osu.edu/esignature site to stay apprised of eSignature enhancements.
This February we’re showing our #BuckeyeLove for a new hire in this month’s employee spotlight. Senior Security Analyst Becky Mayse comes to the OCIO with a passion for information security and a fascination with technology. This former juggler and auctioneer can be found in Baker Systems Engineering talking to stakeholders and spreading awareness about phishing. Outside of the office, you can find her passing messages via ham radio—no, really! Although she’d rather be in the tropics or Paris, Becky is enjoying her new role at The Ohio State University.
OCIO technology poll data collected in 2015 showed us that 70% of survey respondents are satisfied with OCIO services overall. This increase over 2014 results is great news, but there is always room to improve. The comments collected from last year's survey helped prioritize many service enhancements that included moving to 24/7 support for our IT Service Desk, upgrading our BuckeyeBox service to offer unlimited storage and revamping backend functions of the Ohio State app. If you receive a forthcoming invitation to the 2016 survey, please take the opportunity to share your feedback and let your voice be part of the exciting changes.
On February 9, Microsoft will begin to push automatic upgrades of Office 365 ProPlus 2016 to students currently using copies of Office 365 ProPlus 2013 for Windows installed via the Student Advantage/Office 365 Software Portal. This process will take a couple months as Microsoft will only be pushing the upgrade to 1–5% of the student population each day. Unfortunately, we have no way of knowing when someone will receive the upgrade.
