UMIT Advisory: All Mainframe Accounts Were Deactivated on Saturday, March 30, 2019

When the University of Miami embarked on the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) project in 2011, a long-term plan was put in place to implement new comprehensive cloud-based applications for student information (CaneLink in 2013), human capital management (Workday HR and Payroll in 2015), and finance data (Workday Finance in 2017). The plan included a commitment to close down the legacy mainframe applications these ERP applications were replacing. In turn, access to legacy mainframe systems were deactivated on Saturday, March 30, 2019.
