With Interop roadmap set, team drives forward with RFIs & MVPs

Interoperability Transformation Initiative

The Interoperability Transformation Initiative (Interop) has completed the initial planning phases resulting in the creation of the Interop Roadmap. The initiative team is now moving ahead with the implementation of recommendations outlined in the document. You can view the roadmap in its entirety, but be sure you set aside enough time for this significant journey. The team will continue to provide more digestible summaries and updates, like the items below, as projects progress.

The Interop team will begin the implementation phase with the following items:

  • Implement minimally viable products (MVPs) that solve problems identified in collaboration with University partners and stakeholders. These MVPs will span many of the recommended deliverables, and an iterative approach will enable the team to start producing real improvements with which partners and stakeholders can interact and provide feedback.
  • Initiate Request for Information (RFI) and/or Request for Proposal (RFP) for the capabilities and requirements developed in phase 1 around improved Consumer Identity and Access Management (CIAM), enterprise provisioning, and Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS).
  • Begin preliminary domain and data modeling (i.e. rudimentary person and affiliation data modeling in partnership with Offices of Data Management and Analytics Services, Human Resources, the Registrar, and Business Services). This work is required to implement MVP solutions, inform RFI/RFP work, and will be expanded upon and eventually led jointly between Interoperability and ODMAS, leveraging a Data Architect.

Stay tuned for more updates as the initial activities move forward. As always, there are several ways to engage with the initiative.
