Notice of Intent: Decommission of Users, Units, and Orgs services

Tags PK18

Purpose

  • To notify users of our intent to decommission Users, Units, and Orgs services
    • All internal pages currently being hosted on Miami servers will be removed, including all www.units.miamioh.edu and www.orgs.miamioh.edu sites

Notice of Decommission

  • IT Services is planning to retire the service in 2020
    • The exact date is being finalized
    • Users will not be able to access the service after this date
  • If you have questions, contact the Security, Compliance, and Risk Management team at infosec@miamioh.edu 
    • We are currently looking at ways to determine what content should be kept and moved to a separate server, and what will be removed as part of this shutdown

User

  • Miami University Student Organizations, Departments, and Offices

Rationale

  • Content management tools like Cascade and Wordpress, which are available for use by student organizations, departments, and offices, reduce the need for the University-hosted sites
  • Increasing maintenance costs for University-hosted sites
  • Evolving IT security practices

Environment

  • 12610: Users/Units/Orgs Web Services
    • Users, Units, and Orgs Services
