It does seem that Cisco bought the Duo Security, so time will tell how much changes over the next 6 months to a year.

Last month's IT@UF Meeting Notes

You can now view the notes from each meeting at this link.The most recent UF@IT meeting had an interesting topic, in regards to the One IT @ UF agenda.

ITSA Policy and UF IT Policy

I've found it difficult to find the ITSA Computing Policy and the UF IT Policies, so I will provide the links here and keep them here.

ITSA - http://imm.ifas.ufl.edu

UF IT - http://www.it.ufl.edu/policies/

There will now be an ICC Policy Page that will keep track of policy and guidelines. These are not strict rules meant to dictate what must be done, but instead, a page of policies that are meant to help keep things running smoothly for each department and ITSA. You can find it here.

ITPAC met on Monday, October 15th. The group agreed with recommended policies and will present them to Dr.Payne for final approval.

Andrew Carey provided a link to fixing incorrectly named devices. You can find it here.



Please keep in mind that if you would like a TEAMs demostration, Joe and DeWayne are available to do so. Email either of them for more information.

ICC Retreat

I have gathered 2 large auditorium-sized projectors and a standard classroom projector for the TREEO center. I just received a Screenbeam 1100 and we have guests that would like to give us a short presentation and possibly answer some questions.


IFAS IT Updates (previous discussion)

DeWayne and Joe have been busy with Teams demos, which I'll let them discuss.

Andrew, Joe and Chris have had some meetings with UF IT in regards to the UF@IT meeting that was previously mentioned. Andrew will give us an update if he hasn't already done so.

Do we have any SAIC updates?
