Current Projects & Initiatives

Banner 9

With Banner 9 Admin now in Production, the focus is on standing up and configuring Banner 9 Self-Service apps that will replace current functionality and deliver new functionality to the William & Mary community.  While there is no retirement date set for Banner 8 Self-Service, W&M IT is actively working with functional offices that have an interest in testing and going live with Banner 9 Self-Service apps.

Building Projects

W&M Information Technology is currently involved in the construction/renovation projects of the following buildings:

  • Alumni House 
  • Dillard Sceneshop 
  • Integrated Science Center (Phase 4)
  • Kimball Theatre
  • Performing Arts Quarter
  • West Utilities Plant 
  • Blow IT Data Center
  • Busch Field Team Facility

Interest in DocuSign, an electronic signature solution, has been growing since it was introduced on campus in 2017. In simple use cases, users can electronically sign and route documents. More complex implementations involve automatically populating documents with data from Banner, posting information to Banner and/or retaining a copy of the document using Banner Document Management. W&M IT is partnering with campus offices to reduce manual data entry and implement more efficient approval routing using DocuSign.

Eduroam Logo

William & Mary is adopting the wireless network service eduroam to replace W-M_Wireless_Encrypted in all campus buildings. Eduroam is an encrypted wireless network that provides Internet service for academic communities at participating institutions. All residence halls were connected to eduroam as of October 2019, and academic buildings will be transitioned on January 6th, 2020. Any faculty, staff, and students who have not yet set up their digital certificate should do so at connect.wm.edu.

Qlik Reporting 

Qlik is a data discovery tool that enables users to access data from multiple sources at a speed far greater than other reporting tools used at William & Mary.  There is a concentrated effort to replace reports built in Discoverer, a reporting product that has reached end of life. IT staff is working to build the Qlik data models and corresponding apps to replace the Discoverer reports as a top 2019-2020 priority. Currently there are 5 Finance apps, 8 Student apps and 5 Human Resources apps in Qlik production being used by functional users and offices across campus. There are also numerous apps slated for future release.
