Technical Review Team

Charge:

The principal role of the Technical Review Team is caretaker of Ferris State University's enterprise application systems*. Primarily upon direction from the university constituency, this team will:

  • Coordinate installation of application software
  • Coordinate software integration between applications
  • Coordinate software and hardware upgrades
  • Recommend priorities and time lines for projects based on resource availability
  • Balance work load for on-going maintenance per resource availability
  • Problem solve across functional areas
  • Share relevant issues among technical staff


The  Technical Review Team is encouraged to be customer-focused and innovative with the technology that is available. Typically, maintenance of existing infrastructure and applications is of higher importance than new or enhanced applications. This team may also recommend data standards, policies, and procedures as they deem appropriate to the Applications Steering Committee.

Membership will be recommended by the Application Steering Committee and Information Technology Services managers and be reviewed on a yearly basis.

*Enterprise application software at Ferris State University is application software that services all or a majority of the campus community (such as: MyFSU, Banner, FerrisConnect, and Kronos) or software that needs to be integrated with one another system (such as: Xtender, SafeAssign, or AceWare). This is in contrast to the more common single-user software applications which run on a user's own local computer and serve only one user or department at a time, such as: Microsoft Office products, Adobe, or specialty software.
