For 40 years (1969-2009) the operations of the core administrative computer applications (Student, Finance, Human Resources, Payroll, Pensioners, etc.) have been managed by xwave and its predecessors.
For a number of reasons Memorial has initiated a project to bring the Student and Finance applications back in-house . The Human Resources applications will follow in due course.
Benefits to the University include:
This initiative will be managed through C&C and the primary application owners, the Registrar’s Office and Financial and Administrative Services.
To ensure that there is a smooth transition this is to be an inclusive process and key stakeholders will be consulted throughout the project.
The primary function of the Steering Committee is to review the project status, as well as to provide oversight of the project deliverable rollout. Additional functions include approval of changes to the project and its supporting documentation, assistance to the project when required, resolution of project conflicts, and formal acceptance of project deliverables.
The repatriation is expected to take a year’s effort. However, the schedule must take into account the operational requirements of Memorial and an expected completion date of October 9th, 2009.
Communications are a key component of this project; continue to look for updates. If you have concerns or questions please email email@example.com
