The AdmInfo project has been constituted to provide data feeds from the University's administrative IT systems to School-based IT systems and web-pages. This project fulfills an interim need for Schools with specific requirements which can't, at present, be provided within SITS. It is expected that future developments with SITS and eVision will obviate the need for this project in it's present form
At this juncture data will be extracted mainly from SITS and minimal data from the Personel system. The project can be envisaged as a "data warehouse" system for the University's administrative data. The data will be "read-only" and probably refreshed on a nightly basis.
