Hello. Please share this information with your school/division colleagues as you deem appropriate. This email is being sent to MOU Leads, Business Managers and HR Officers. Thanks.
Last October, a number of the University’s systems were replaced by ConnectCarolina and InfoPorte. Some of these legacy systems were turned off last October, but many are still up and running. We aren’t using these systems to create new transactions, but we’re still using the information stored on them.
We are beginning the process of turning these systems off, or decommissioning them. The goal is to finish decommissioning most systems (not all) by the end of this calendar year. Some systems will be turned off sooner, and some will remain longer, depending on what needs to be done to get all needed information and tools off the systems.
One important thing to know is that the team is taking a careful approach. The ConnectCarolina team has been doing detailed analysis to make sure we understand who still uses each system, what information is needed from them, and how we will address those needs going forward. In some cases, the legacy system will stay up and running for a while longer, while in others we are making sure all information we need is off the legacy system so we can turn it off.
