Several functional areas of CIT are involved in this large project. We are working closely with Facilities Planning on:

  • Network infrastructure

  • Relocating departments and classrooms during construction

Secure Login

Estimated Completion: January 2020 - April 2020

Multi-factor authentication will be required for all Faculty & Staff by the end of the Spring semester. A new Self Service Password Reset will be rolled out to all users during this time period as well.

Internet Upgrade

Estimated Completion: January 2020

We are migrating our campus internet connection to a service provided by NYSERNet that provides direct access to many popular content distribution networks. This will increase connection speeds and decrease latency.

Establish a process to track asset values in our computer inventory

Our goal is to, as automatically as possible, collect these financial data points on each machine in our inventory:

  • Acquisition Value (i.e. how much it cost to purchase it)
  • Current Value (i.e. how much it's worth currently in the device's useful life cycle)

Once that data is populated, we want to create an automated report that keeps those inventory fields up to date, and calculates the total AV and CV of the fleet on a fixed interval.
