Last year, University IT and colleagues from UH-Clear Lake, UH-Downtown, and UH-Victoria completed an ambitious project to establish uniform standards for IT facilities throughout the UH System. It was a colossal achievement — the four universities have 780 facilities in 11 categories.
In October, Rex Gillit, who led the project, and Shyamala Ramalingam represented UH and UIT when they presented a poster showcasing the project methodology, tools, techniques and the results at the prestigious international EDUCAUSE Conference 2023 in Chicago. The duo were scheduled for two 45-minute presentations, but the interest generated by their topic "Are Unified Standards Possible for IT Facilities Systemwide?" kept them engaged with CIOs and other IT professionals for more than two hours each time.
