A list of current initiatives:
The University of Toronto is seeking to introduce a pilot project to update the payment method for external vendors. This initiative will help to increase efficiency and transparency as well as provide a convenient, cost-effective way to distribute recurring payments to established Canadian vendors. To achieve this goal, the Financial Services Department, Procurement Services and Enterprise Applications & Solutions Integration are seeking to implement a pilot Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) payment system that will allow U of T to pay vendor invoices directly to vendors’ bank accounts.
The redesigned and cloud-based Timetable Builder will allow students to easily create and optimize their course schedules with a convenient, user-friendly and accessible user experience. After a successful pilot at the University of Toronto Scarborough, this application has been enhanced and will be released more broadly across U of T.
This year, the University of Toronto’s Digital Workplace team will migrate its clients’ computers to Microsoft Intune, a powerful cloud-based mobile device management service, from its legacy Managed Desktop Service. The migration to Intune will introduce a modern desktop experience for a modern workplace.
Information Security is applying advanced Microsoft 365 Defender security features to a subset of staff and faculty at the University. These security features will provide an added layer of protection to Microsoft 365 accounts and will safeguard the community against malicious threats posed by attachments, links and documents.
Following consultation with a cross section of students, instructors, staff and senior leadership, Accommodated Testing Services (ATS) is bringing accommodated tests and exams services to the next level, implementing new processes and technology to support a growing need at the University.
Users will find the process transparent, seamless and intuitive, providing easy online access to information through pre-existing University platforms.
In reviewing options to upgrade and modernize U of T Administrative Management Systems, Enterprise Applications & Solutions Integration (EASI) will use the latest SAP technology to upgrade all systems – providing a consistent, intuitive and streamlined user experience.
