The desktop computer has evolved from a tool for individual productivity to a mission-critical component for sharing information. While our dependency on this technology continues to grow, so do the ever present security threats from the internet. Desktop management tools will provide us with the capability to rapidly respond to these threats, while more effectively utilizing our IT support staff.

Our Desktop Management Strategy will focus on the following areas:

  • Security

  • Patch Management

  • Software Distribution

  • Improved user support and satisfaction

  • Standardization

We will use Microsoft's Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 and a newly developed Active Directory as our primary management tools. 

The new computer will also include an application that will report print activity back to a centralized server on campus.  This is in support of the University Campus Print Program.  Click here to learn more about the program.
