Agenda
Agenda

Action Item: Brett Pollak (10 minutes)

Emergency Status Page Promotion:

  • Update emergency link on home page footer based on revised emergency procedure process

  • Potential inclusion of link to Emergency Status on other campus sites

    Informational Item: Brett Pollak & Emily Deere (10 minutes)

    Exploratory idea to be CMS provider for UC Berkeley:

  • Request

  • Approach

  • Pros and Cons

    Project updates: Brett Pollak (30 minutes)

  • Moving to Sites Model in CMS

  • Mobile optimize Libraries Hours (proof of concept)

  • Sites moved into CMS

  • Analytics



Emergency status promotion
Emergency Status Promotion

ucsd.edu/emergency





Emergency status promotion proposal
Emergency Status Promotion Proposal

  • Change UCSD home page footer to link to ucsd.edu/emergency.

    • Remove icon and change link wording to “Emergency Status”

    • Blink: same change & archive old Emergency page

  • Add Emergency Status link to footer for

    • UCSD Umbrella Sites?

      • Prospective Students, Current Students, Parents & Families, Faculty & Staff, Alumni, Friends & Visitors

        -- or --

    • All sites in the CMS?





Options
Options

  • Home page only

  • Home page plus UCSD Audience sites

  • All sites in the CMS



Cms berkeley
CMS & Berkeley

  • What?

    • Exploratory idea to leverage our instance of Cascade Server for Berkeley’s Web CMS needs

  • Who?

    • IST (Info Systems & Technology)

      • J.R. Schulden (App Services Director)

      • Bill Allison (App Services)

  • Why?

    • Berkeley wants to centralize web operations for similar reasons to UCSD


What s in it for them
What’s in it for them?

  • Leverages existing environments (and components such as the Google Search Appliance) at UCSD

  • Reduces their costs associated with purchase and install of hardware for web, app, and database layers; firewall, networking and other data center costs; database licensing

  • Reduces (or leverages shared) staffing needs for implementation and operations (Data Center, System Administration, DBA, Application Administration)

  • Leverages UCSD/UCOP agreement and robust infrastructure for business continuity/disaster recovery model

  • Potentially reduces vendor licensing costs, one-time and/or ongoing (pending assessment of UCSD contract)


What s in it for us
What’s in it for us?

  • $$

  • Enables multi-campus leverage in current and future contract negotiations

  • Increases inter-campus pool of technical subject matter experts providing application and site administration support

  • Increases campus participation in shared service models, with potential for partnerships with other campuses (UCI, UC Davis, UC Santa Cruz, UCOP)

  • Enables development of inter-campus pool of technical competency for future expansion of Web Services (mobile web, mashups, widgets, middleware components, etc.)



Risks considerations
Risks/Considerations

  • Vendor licensing may not accommodate multi-campus licensing, thus not reducing licensing costs

    • Likelihood = High

    • Impact = None (as planned; pending contract negotiations may actually reduce licensing costs)

  • Can UCSD Infrastructure support Berkeley’s needs?

    • Likelihood = Med (based on preliminary discussion with UCSD representatives)

    • Impact = High

  • Security model may require shared privileges between campus’ administrators, and/or limited privileges to Berkeley application and/or site administrators

    • Likelihood = Med

    • Impact = Low-Med (reduce through technical discussion/design re: user/group settings, SSL certifications per campus domain(s), etc.)

  • Account provisioning & authentication

    • Likelihood = High

    • Impact = Med-High (reduce through use of common mechanism such as Shibboleth, or pending technical feasibility for campus unique mechanisms)

  • Impacts to existing projects


Next steps
Next steps

  • Conference call this afternoon to better understand Berkeley’s CMS requirements

  • Feasibility/Scope document

Project updates:

Moving to Sites Model in CMS

Mobile optimize Libraries Hours (proof of concept)

Sites moved into CMS

Analytics

Cascade server sites model
Cascade Server Sites Model

  • With upgrade from v5 to v6 Cascade Server employs a new model for managing websites

    Advantages:

  • Less time to create new sites within the system

  • More streamlined approach to developing and maintaining content templates

  • More efficient way of distributing new templates & enhancements across existing CMS websites.







Sites model project
Sites Model Project

Sites currently are copies with skeleton, skin, and clothes initially derived from a central source but independent branches.

“Sites” will centralize the skeleton and skin so existing sites can inherit new features easier

“Sites” will significantly reduce the effort for setting up new sites in the CMS.

“Sites” will allow for administrator-level access on a site-by-site basis.

Mobile optimize libraries hours poc
Mobile Optimize Libraries Hours POC

  • Who?

    • Libraries ITD, ACT, & CWO to develop a proof of concept in the CMS for maintaining Libraries hours content and optimizing display for Smartphones.

  • Why?

    • Determines how well the CMS outputs a mobile optimized template
