Administrative Departments with Special or Advanced Software or Hardware Needs:

The Technology Resource Center's primary goal is to provide excellent technical support for our students in using technology for their academic progress. Our secondary goal is general technology support for faculty and staff on College-supported software and hardware.

Administrative departments that may need specialized or customized software applications which meet the department's needs but do not meet the College's software/hardware standards should be aware that the Technology Resource Center can provide general technology advice (per the College supported software list above) and assistance where feasible.

Once a department decides to install and maintain special or customized software applications, the department's responsibilities include (but are not strictly limited to):

  • Funding and arranging for the software/hardware purchase
  • Funding and arranging for any consulting or training required to install and maintain the software applications, plus any ongoing maintenance costs
  • Identifying trained departmental staff who can adequately support the department's software application, with a backup plan to cover vacations or other times when those key staff are not available
  • Doing backups and providing a secure environment for their departmental data (disaster recovery plans, who has access to the data, who can modify/delete records, etc.)
  • Managing the business relationship with the vendor supplying the software/hardware

If your department is considering buying or developing special software applications, you should contact The Technology Resource Center at x4357 to learn whether there is a Datatel module to meet your needs and to what extent the Technology Resource Center can help.
