Enterprise Information Systems Committee Minutes
(Monday) September 30, 2013
9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in Barge 410


Discussion Topic:

  • October’s meetings will start at 8:30, to allow time for more business cases.
  • All business cases requesting funds need to be presented by October 21st.
  • Rating sheet for prioritizing the cases will be sent later in the month.
  • Faculty 180 Advisory Subcouncil structure presented by Stevan DeSoer was approved in the revised format. Stevan will get that out to the different colleges so membership can be initiated.


Business Case(s):

Public Internet Service Business Case was presented by Noah Rodriguez. It was asked if this was combined with the campus wide wireless plan. It was not. Currently, we have a system to give wireless access when requested. This case solves issues with our current process and uses an outside vendor source that allows CWU to allow more open access while meeting our legal requirements.
Recommend to move it forward to be considered by the Cabinet.


Data Encryption/Masking – Oracle Security Business Case was presented by Andreas Bohman. This plan allows real data to be used in environments when needed, but keeps personal data safe by masking that real data. This keeps personal data stored on our equipment safer by encrypting it at the source. Recommend to move it forward to be considered by the Cabinet.


Business Continuity Business Case was presented by Andreas Bohman. You can have a disaster recovery plan without business continuity, but that leaves a hole. The IT department may see the need of getting all systems up and running, but not the knowledge of which ones are most important. There was a concern that our business processes are changing right now and this might be better implemented at a little later time, after iCAT project is completed. Cost discussed was for bringing a vendor on site to evaluate our environment and provided a plan. The alternative plan to complete this process with CWU employees was brought up and discussed. It was explained that if we had the resources, such as skill set and people.
Recommended to move it forward to be considered by the Cabinet.

  • Was requested that Andreas provide a sample/example of what the vendors provide.
  • Was requested that Andreas provide a list of who are some of the other schools that may have used these vendors if they provided that information and maybe request a sample of the report provided by the vendor.
