“Just say No to Outsourcing” – Developing an in-house info system to take care of your daily needs

Audience: All
Technical Level: Low

At the University of Arizona Rogers College of Law we still use Westlaw, Lexis, Raiser’s Edge, Admit-M, examSoft and other major applications. But there are many other important needs and functions that are critical to the mission of our school that we simply cannot find anywhere to buy or, if available, they don’t quite meet our needs, too expensive or suffer from any other deficiency. We will explain our design concepts and development strategies and tools that allowed us to build easy to use applications that all have the same ‘look and feel’ to meet our daily needs such as:

Catalog Request (for prospective students)

Alumni Forum (browser interface to Raiser�s Edge)

Forums (our main class communications platform for posting class materials, class communications, etc.)

Class/Room scheduling/events calendar

Facebook/seating charts

Career Services � Job Postings/OCI

Evaluations/Exam numbers/Ranks/exam, paper e-filing

Faculty Directory/Publications/Scholarship/myEDM (Internet network storage access)

College Publications

Student email/info

Search engine

Library functions and highly dynamic websites
