27
Option A Pros
  • No changes to current environment required.
  • No additional resources required.
  • Increased performance and quality of service for
    print and file services currently provided by
    Windows NT systems.
  • Fairly easy to implement in a short period of
    time with minimal planning.

28
Option A Cons
  • Inheritance of current service issues.
    (Maintenance and monitoring are very complex and
    time consuming).
  • No added benefit of Windows 2000 features
    including Active Directory.
  • Continued increase in operational and support
    complexity of current environment.
  • No additional support services provided in the
    form of directory-enabled applications.

29
Option A Cons
  • As time progresses, it will become more expensive
    and difficult to achieve enterprise-wide IT
    initiatives.
  • Other UH colleges/divisions, or campuses would
    have the opportunity to lead the UH central
    campus in Windows-based initiatives.
  • Some machines may require minor or major upgrades
    to meet Windows 2000 hardware requirements.
  • Inability to utilize new releases of applications
    designed to take advantage of Windows 2000
    features based on Active Directory.

30
Metamorphosis Scope of Windows 2000 Project and
Management Commitment
  • Option A Windows 2000 Deployment as Software
    Upgrade Only
  • Option B Negotiated Migration
  • Option C Institution Wide Migration Directive

31
Option B Negotiated Migration

33
Option B Pros
  • For units partnering with IT, maintenance of
    hierarchal Windows domain structure necessary for
    full utilization of Windows 2000 features.
  • Improved quality of service (QOS) and support
    within IT partner collaborations.
  • Benefits of Active Directory implementation at
    the UH central campus will facilitate the
    automation of many processes resulting in
    improvements to QOS.
  • Increased performance and quality of service for
    print and file services currently provided by
    Windows NT systems.
  • UH would become a leader among other UH
    colleges/divisions and campuses with respect to
    Windows-based initiatives.

34
Option B Pros
  • Central support within a common infrastructure.
    Easier to focus support and user training in the
    simplified model.
  • Standardization of Windows desktop configurations
    among IT partner units.
  • Simplified account and resource management.
  • Easier to incorporate colleges/divisions with no
    prior IT partnering experience.
  • Ability to utilize future applications that are
    released to take advantage of Windows 2000
    features and Active Directory.

35
Option B Cons
  • For units not partnering with IT, limited access
    to centralized computing resources. (This is a
    current service dilemma).
  • For units not partnering with IT, no Active
    Directory integration. Effectiveness of
    automation processes severely limited.
  • Changes in domain structure will require
    significant planning among IT departments and
    partner units.
  • Realization of the benefits of Windows 2000 at a
    system level will require the cooperation of all
    the UH campuses.

36
Option B Cons
  • Some machines may require minor or major upgrades
    to meet Windows 2000 hardware requirements.
  • Colleges/Divisions may find it difficult to
    implement Windows 2000 on their own as compared
    to Windows NT because Windows 2000 is designed as
    an enterprise OS and not a departmental OS.
  • For units not partnering with IT, inability to
    utilize new releases of applications designed to
    take advantage of Windows 2000 features like
    Active Directory.

37
Metamorphosis Scope of Windows 2000 Project and
Management Commitment
  • Option A Windows 2000 Deployment as Software
    Upgrade Only
  • Option B Negotiated Migration
  • Option C Institution Wide Migration Directive

Option C Pros
  • Full realization of enterprise-wide IT
    objectives.
  • Maximized efficient utilization of UH resources.
  • Full benefits of Active Directory implementation
    at the UH central campus.
  • Standardization of Windows desktop
    configurations.
  • Central support within a common infrastructure.
  • Easier to focus support and user training in a
    simplified model.
  • Major improvement in Windows desktop support.

41
Option C Pros
  • Support for legacy OSs and applications should
    decrease as more people standardize.
  • Simplified account and resource management.
  • UH would become a leader among other UH campuses
    and Universities with respect to Windows-based
    initiatives
  • Easier to incorporate colleges/divisions with no
    prior IT partnering experience.
  • Increased performance and quality of service for
    print and file services currently provided by
    Windows NT systems.
  • Ability to utilize future applications that are
    released to take advantage of Windows 2000
    features and Active Directory.

42
Option C Cons
  • Politically challenging in current environment.
  • Significant change in resource responsibilities
    for IT.
  • Requires extensive planning among IT departments
    and partner units.
  • Requires extensive end user training which is
    somewhat offset by a simpler computing
    environment.
  • Realization of the benefits of Windows 2000 at a
    system level will require the cooperation of all
    the UH campuses.
  • Some machines may require minor or major upgrades
    to meet Windows 2000 hardware requirements.
