2017 Year in Review

Enterprise Project Recognized in Year in Review

Looking back at 2017, the university’s IT community made strides in harnessing the power of technology to enhance the Ohio State experience. New capabilities and exciting initiatives were successfully launched by both the Office of the Chief Information Officer and the Office of Distance Education and eLearning. Among the highlights is the Enterprise Project and its goal of creating more efficient processes and implementing modern systems.

The Enterprise Project will replace the university’s outdated core administrative system with Workday, a cloud-based software application that will house financial, human resources, payroll and student information. Workday will provide consistent and streamlined business transactions alongside various other enterprise technology solutions. These improved systems will result in more reliable data and informed decision-making.

Given the far-reaching impact of the Enterprise Project’s work, staff from all over Ohio State are teaming up to co-create seamless business processes. Involving a range of perspectives is crucial to the project’s mission, from the Plan and Foundational Design phase all the way through Deployment. By fostering a collaborative culture, the project team is ensuring that faculty, staff and students are shaping the future of Ohio State.
