Active Directory + Office365 Consolidation Currently, UNH faculty/staff and UNH students utilize two separate environments for email and information sharing, one on-premise and one in the cloud. The separate environments present many challenges for collaboration and scheduling between these two groups, as well as between other USNH institutions and colleagues outside the university system. Consolidating to one unified environment will not only improve collaboration and information sharing for all but will also greatly reduce the current complexity of managing two separate systems. The current model presents a LEAN improvement opportunity to standardize on a single simplified platform and rededicate staff to other strategic initiatives. 8/16 - 3/19 60 Pete Larimer
Banner Document Retention Documents have been imaged for multiple USNH departments for several years. Many of these images still exist. The first phase of the Banner Document Retention project will implement software to automate the deletion of current and future digital documents based on the retention policy for the document type. Development of a retention policy will reduce legal risk by deleting aged documents and reduce the storage requirements. 04/15 - 11/19

NH School Connectivity Initiative

UNH IT is a key participant in the NH School Connectivity Initiative; a collation of state agencies and vendor organizations tasked with facilitating fiber connections to all NH K-12 schools and identifying ways to enhance New Hampshire's usage of FCC E-Rate funding.  These efforts could lead to an expansion of USNH's 40-site Wide Area Network (WAN) to encompass connections for K-12 schools and potentially other state community anchor institutions such as libraries, public safety, and telehealth.
