4 Agenda Life is good Caught looking at our navel Let’s write some shelf-ware Let’s not and say we did So how did that work out for you?

5 Life is good ERP in place Saving some coin Lotsa data Planning to retire with PeopleSoft

6 Looking at our Navel then…

7 BAM!

8 Lets Write some Shelf-ware Found one brave soul (Gartner) to help us Started to write the big honkin plan Stopped writing a plan, started thinking

9 Lets not and say we did Lets think strategically –Started with Gartner’s framework, but came up with our own process Small teams Motivated experts Internal and external scanning Iterative But tell everyone we’re writing a strategic plan

18 Example: Business Strategy Interviewed every dean and VP Developed 17 key business goals Examples included: –Increase the level of research funding (private and public) –Continue to increase the size of the university’s endowment through private fundraising –Maintain and increase the excellence of our faculty –Maintain and increase the excellence and size of our academic programs and facilities

20 Example: Application Strategy Should we ride PeopleSoft for as long as we can? Should we commit to Oracle’s long range vision? Should we form a strategic partnership with SAP or Microsoft? Was this the time to move to Open Source? Do we want to avoid putting all of our eggs in one basket? How important is best of breed versus integrated solution? Should we build applications ourselves? Could our University “stomach” significant change in these economic times?

21 We will… Let “Best of Breed” trump ERP Be expert in both Java and.Net Shift resources from transactional activities to business intelligence Shift resources from traditional applications such as student admin, finance and human resources toward support of Research Administration and Fundraising

22 We will… Build select software from scratch when appropriate Move to Fusion in the long run but be open to “best of breed” solutions including open source Build our infrastructure out gradually over the next several years to prepare us for Fusion

23 Our Evolution 1995 Build 90% 1995 Plan 2005 Buy 90% 2006 Plan 2015 Buy/Acquire 70% Build 30%

24 Do Overs Missed things –Workflow, Portal Some assumptions were wrong –Cost to move to Oracle middleware beyond our means –Apple making a comeback –Business Intelligence is driving infrastructure changes faster than our applications Vendor decision changes –PeopleSoft Applications Unlimited

25 Lessons Learned Great is the enemy of good Concise list of business drivers is crucial Small working groups speed the process Regular reviews allow you to adapt the plan (changes come fast: keep up!) Annual list of strategic priorities –Important communication tool –Alignment drives the right results
