CAMP Directory Workshop Feb 3-6, 2004 UF Directory Background Community effort to solve the directory problem at UF sources for directory information. Limited sharing Strong data “ownership” Information Systems, Academic Technology, Health Center, Registrar, Data Center involved from the beginning
CAMP Directory Workshop Feb 3-6, 2004 UF Directory Background GatorLink – Kerberos-based authentication mechanism since Unsponsored campus LDAP and NDS. DB2-based registry of people information. Adhoc integration. Many feeds to the registry, few from the registry.
CAMP Directory Workshop Feb 3-6, 2004 SWOT Analysis Strengths –Experience with registry, LDAP, Kerberos. –Vision –Spontaneous community effort Weaknesses –Organizational barriers Opportunities –SSN. Cleanup. Get to the next level. New organization Threats –Commitment. Complexity
CAMP Directory Workshop Feb 3-6, 2004 Planning Effort Ad hoc 14 member workgroup formed in August 2000 Considered all aspects of directory services Connected with national efforts. Ken Klingenstein Cross team planning with SSN task force Cross team planning with IT Review Completed white paper in August 2001
CAMP Directory Workshop Feb 3-6, 2004 A Vignette Bill is a physician faculty member in the College of Medicine. He and/or his department administrator can update his contact information using a web page. This information automatically populates/updates the personnel system, the Shands Communications system (CHRIS), the Shands HealthCare on-line directory of physicians, Bill’s entry in Netware Directory Services, Active Directory, the on-line phone book, the UF enterprise directory database, and the UF LDAP directory. People using programs and their address books always automatically access Bill’s current address. UF business processes have access to Bill’s current information. Bill’s information is updated once and is used and accessed consistently across the enterprise.
