EAD Organizational Teams
The EAD unit follows the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) methodology when developing computer programs and applications for the UCF community.
Our Business Analysts serve as functional technical liaisons between end-users and programmers to ensure computer applications and modifications meet the specific business needs and requirements. They begin each project life cycle with planning, analysis, and design with the customer. After our Programmers complete the implementation phase, testing is then completed by the Business Analysts and customer and the end product is moved into a production environment.
Our Programmers begin the implementation phase after receiving client information from our Business Analysts. This phase is completed with development and integration using multiple programming languages such as Cobol, SQR, SQL, etc. Ongoing maintenance with our products is an important step to making sure our enterprise modules and applications work effectively and efficiently.
EAD is comprised of PeopleSoft application development teams, which include Enterprise Imaging Systems (EIS). The EIS team aims to reduce paper usage through ViewStar, an electronic document imaging management system. EIS oversees the operation of ViewStar and its applications that allow customers with active accounts to access and manage their electronic documents.
EAD is responsible for the following products:
