In the Office of the CIO, we work together every day to connect the Ohio State University to the world, making our students, faculty and staff part of the conversation to influence the direction of global thought and leadership.

Project Spotlight

Help WantedAs Ohio’s largest university, Ohio State works every day with the earliest adopters of technology and is constantly evolving to meet their changing needs. In this environment only the sharpest IT professionals survive, and even they are learning something new every step of the way. Below are some current areas of focus.

PeopleSoft Upgrade

PeopleSoft is an important component of Ohio State’s business operations — managing data from recruitment to retirement. Ohio State is working on a PeopleSoft upgrade that will increase system availability, reduce unscheduled outages, improve server processing and decrease database server costs by 80%. If you’re a PeopleSoft expert who is interested in refining foundational HR systems and business processes, then we’re looking for you.

Mobile Technologies

Building on the foundation of our much-loved mobile app, OSU is finding new ways to go mobile. Students will need more mobile services for new devices, digital textbooks and technologies that haven’t even emerged yet. There is much yet to be discovered in this growing field, and OSU has been partnering with market innovators to stay ahead of the curve and deliver solutions to meet their changing needs.

IT Security

IT Security is not only here to stay, it is continuing to grow. It’s an ongoing game of cat-and-mouse, with criminals constantly devising new schemes and our security experts finding the solutions to ward them off. Successful IT security professionals are continually learning and honing their skills. It’s a challenging field, but it’s never boring.
