Administrative Technologies

Administrative TECHNOLOGIES creates and implements innovative technology solutions used to operate and manage the business of the University of Arizona, with the direction of cloud-first, that will better unlock the potential of employees to increase efficiency, transparency, and access to pertinent data.

Mark Felix Interim Executive Director

Administrative Technologies works collaboratively to support the applications and business units at the University through multiple projects of different stages of implementation and maintenance. Large-scale projects include University-wide often referred to as “enterprise” applications that impact the finance, human resources, and research aspects of the business of the University.

The teams in Administrative Technologies offer several layers of application development and support. An example is when code updates are offered by the software vendor and reviewed for technical specification by the developers. Business analysts review the update for value to the end-user business case. Once an update is determined to be of value for university purposes, developers process the update and any custom changes needed in a test environment. Working groups collaborate with business users on potential changes to application and determine optimal time to commit changes.

Changes from software vendors come in different forms, such as software patches, regular vendor code maintenance, system upgrades and setting or configuration changes. There are also occasions for University-initiated changes. These system changes most always require some downtime, and always require careful documentation, testing and communication with stakeholders by the Administration Technologies teams.
