Initiatives

The following major initiatives are multi-year efforts and affect many University departments.

Drupal 7 Upgrade

March 2021 - TBD 2023
IPP #2022-2445

This project will upgrade all OIT-supported Drupal 7 websites to Drupal 9. This includes Site Builder version 1 (formerly called Template Sites), OpenScholar and Custom. The new Drupal 9 platform is called the Princeton Site Builder version 2 platform.  Learn more.

Web Appointment Scheduling Engine Replacement

November 2020 - Fall 2022
IPP #2021-2213

The goals of this project include an assessment of Princeton's web appointment scheduling requirements; product comparisons; and a path to move to newly recommended product(s). The current Web Appointment Scheduling Engine (WASE) system is custom coded and needs a user interface update. The system no longer fully meets Princeton's scheduling needs. Learn more.

Assessment of Custom Perl/PHP Applications

Now-September 2022
IPP #2020-2211

WDS is assessing a collection of 50+ custom applications written in Perl and PHP for service and technology improvements. We're seeking to ensure their ongoing security, maintainability and accessibility. WDS will contact each application owner to review your business needs. During the assessment, change requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Generally, change requests will be declined unless they are essential to University operations.
