Metamorphosis: Sign-On, SecurityScope of Windows 2000 Project and Management Commitment

  • Option A: Windows 2000 Deployment as Software Upgrade Only

  • Option B: Negotiated Migration

  • Option C: Institution Wide Migration Directive



Slide26 l.jpg

Active Directory Sign-On, Security


Option a pros l.jpg

No changes to current environment required. Sign-On, Security

No additional resources required.

Increased performance and quality of service for print and file services currently provided by Windows NT systems.

Fairly easy to implement in a short period of time with minimal planning.

Option A: Pros


Option a cons l.jpg
Option A: Cons Sign-On, Security

  • Inheritance of current service issues. (Maintenance and monitoring are very complex and time consuming).

  • No added benefit of Windows 2000 features including Active Directory.

  • Continued increase in operational and support complexity of current environment.

  • No additional support services provided in the form of directory-enabled applications.


Option a cons29 l.jpg
Option A: Cons Sign-On, Security

  • As time progresses, it will become more expensive and difficult to achieve enterprise-wide IT initiatives.

  • Other UH colleges/divisions, or campuses would have the opportunity to lead the UH central campus in Windows-based initiatives.

  • Some machines may require minor or major upgrades to meet Windows 2000 hardware requirements.

  • Inability to utilize new releases of applications designed to take advantage of Windows 2000 features based on Active Directory.

  • Option A: Windows 2000 Deployment as Software Upgrade Only

  • Option B: Negotiated Migration

  • Option C: Institution Wide Migration Directive


Option b negotiated migration l.jpg

Option B: Sign-On, SecurityNegotiated Migration


Option b pros l.jpg
Option B: Pros Sign-On, Security

  • For units partnering with IT, maintenance of hierarchal Windows domain structure necessary for full utilization of Windows 2000 features.

  • Improved quality of service (QOS) and support within IT partner collaborations.

  • Benefits of Active Directory implementation at the UH central campus will facilitate the automation of many processes resulting in improvements to QOS.

  • Increased performance and quality of service for print and file services currently provided by Windows NT systems.

  • UH would become a leader among other UH colleges/divisions and campuses with respect to Windows-based initiatives.


Option b pros34 l.jpg
Option B: Pros Sign-On, Security

  • Central support within a common infrastructure. Easier to focus support and user training in the simplified model.

  • Standardization of Windows desktop configurations among IT partner units.

  • Simplified account and resource management.

  • Easier to incorporate colleges/divisions with no prior IT partnering experience.

  • Ability to utilize future applications that are released to take advantage of Windows 2000 features and Active Directory.


Option b cons l.jpg
Option B: Cons Sign-On, Security

  • For units not partnering with IT, limited access to centralized computing resources. (This is a current service dilemma).

  • For units not partnering with IT, no Active Directory integration. Effectiveness of automation processes severely limited.

  • Changes in domain structure will require significant planning among IT departments and partner units.

  • Realization of the benefits of Windows 2000 at a system level will require the cooperation of all the UH campuses.


Option b cons36 l.jpg
Option B: Cons Sign-On, Security

  • Some machines may require minor or major upgrades to meet Windows 2000 hardware requirements.

  • Colleges/Divisions may find it difficult to implement Windows 2000 on their own as compared to Windows NT because Windows 2000 is designed as an enterprise OS and not a departmental OS.

  • For units not partnering with IT, inability to utilize new releases of applications designed to take advantage of Windows 2000 features like Active Directory.

Option c pros41 l.jpg
Option C: Pros Sign-On, Security

  • Support for legacy OS’s and applications should decrease as more people standardize.

  • Simplified account and resource management.

  • UH would become a leader among other UH campuses and Universities with respect to Windows-based initiatives

  • Easier to incorporate colleges/divisions with no prior IT partnering experience.

  • Ability to utilize future applications that are released to take advantage of Windows 2000 features and Active Directory.


Option c cons l.jpg
Option C: Cons Sign-On, Security

  • Politically challenging in current environment.

  • Significant change in resource responsibilities for IT.

  • Requires extensive planning among IT departments and partner units.

  • Requires extensive end user training which is somewhat offset by a simpler computing environment.

  • Realization of the benefits of Windows 2000 at a system level will require the cooperation of all the UH campuses.

  • Some machines may require minor or major upgrades to meet Windows 2000 hardware requirements.
