ITAP team's functions
Specifically, ITAP was created to meet the challenges of digitalization.
It is tasked with:
- the implementation of teaching and research related IT applications to support digital processes
- application management which, during the life cycle of the IT applications, focuses on application development and operation, and user support.
Campus Management Portal
The Campus Management Portal provides continuous IT Support for the administrative processes involved in the student life cycle and thereby the core process academic affairs and teaching.
This includes application, admission, enrollment, student management (eg. payment of fees), course management, course planning, academic performance management (course and exam evaluations) and room administration.
In addition, employees have access to additional applications such as registration for continuing education courses.
Current Research Information System
Soon the current research information system of the Unversity of Stuttgart will be used to compile information about the research activites - projects, publications and prizes of the researchers at the University. The administrative processes within the research process - such as the provision of the register of projects in accordance with § 41a LHG BW, or project notifications will be supported from a technological standpoint. The achievements of the scientists at the university can then be presented in a structured way for the rest of the scientific community and the public.
If administration processes are to be technologically supported, they need to be clearly documented. One option is the use of a Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) application.
Providing Software-as-a-Service, the University of Konstanz operates individual Signavio Collaboration Hubs for eight state universities, through which business use cases (processes) can be mapped.
The bwCard project
The bwCard project is carried out by the universities of Baden-Württemberg, supported by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts. The goal is a federation that enables the participating institutions to reliably integrate chip cards from the other institution into their own digital processes and services.(1)
