7 SEMS Enterprise Integration Strategies - Scope
Various Users Utilizes existing enterprise administrative systems data – SIS, HRS & FRS User access entry through web portal interface Integration ultimately achieved through a complement of web services technologies – Java Server Pages (JSP), Java, Apache Tomcat Servlet engine, JDBC application program interface software, Connx middleware and NJIT directory database.

8 SEMS Enterprise Integration Strategies – Support & Funding
Presented and approved by Senior Management and Associate Provost/CIO Presented to SIS Users Project Subcommittee for approval and prioritization Source of funding for graduate student wages were shared by both SFAS & UIS Partially implemented fall 2002, fully implemented fall 2004; SEMS v. 2 deployed fall 2005

9 Benefits Leveraged investment in legacy system
No added expense for software purchase Utilizing existing software and open-source technology Nominal cost to fund “student” employee to work with NJIT staff to develop SEMS SFAS performing student employment functions more efficiently and effectively with 1.5 FTE staff person More satisfied campus-community
