Danna Gianforte and I (Area Directors for Enterprise Applications and Central Systems & Network Services, respectively) recently agreed to a staffing change. Marcy Smith is now a member of the Enterprise Applications area. We believe that having the soon-to-be-hired Database Administrator (DBA) and the Enterprise Systems Administrator (aka Marcy) reporting to the same Area Director will:
- streamline communications
- remove roadblocks in the workflow
- improve service to the functional areas
Central Systems & Network Services will continue to work closely with Marcy, as we do with all of Enterprise Applications staff. Marcy will be moving to the Davis Family Library at some point, but the details of that move have not been finalized.
I enjoyed having Marcy in my area and certainly learned a lot about Banner and just how complicated it all is from her! All of us in CS & NS look forward to continuing to work with Marcy. In fact, the looming upgrade to Oracle 11G will give us plenty of opportunity. But that’s a subject for another post…
