Academic Knowledge Management (AKM)
Student Information Systems (SIS)
The SIS (Student Information Systems) team works with all USF System users of our student information systems (Banner, DegreeWorks) to facilitate clear understanding and definition of a business need, situation or problem. The SIS team also assists departments in the assessment of their current business processes to identify and recommend improvements resulting in, but not limited to, better customer service and streamlined work processes.
Through this dialogue, the SIS team identifies and thoroughly documents the requirements for a solution to be implemented by IT. Additionally, projects are selected from the SIS work queue through a process developed by Academic Knowledge Management (AKM) where customers democratically prioritize projects at a monthly SIS Workgroup meeting.
