Utrecht University

With over 30,000 students and 7,600 employees, Utrecht University is one of the largest universities in the Netherlands. ITS is the central department that offers IT services to staff and students. CIMSOLUTIONS is the preferred supplier at the university and has carried out the following projects, among others:

UU integration platform

CIMSOLUTIONS has carried out a pilot to realize the UU integration platform by setting up an Enterprise Server Bus. The student app was used for the pilot, whereby the timetable, data and figures (Osiris cloud) were made available. Governance has also been worked out and a proposal has been writtento set up the organization, by using ICC (Integration Competency Center). CIMSOLUTIONS has also implemented structural improvements with regard to IAM: Making the management of the 65,000 identities better and cheaper, complying with the AVG, reducing all customization and improving governance. The pilot has taken a major step forward to set up the integration platform. This has ultimately resulted in the implementation of this solution for all faculties.

Implement Agile working method for the Research Data Management Platform

Utrecht University has asked CIMSOLUTIONS to arrange the Scrum framework for the further development of their data management platform, which is part of the university policy framework for research data. The goal is to improve cooperation between the Scrum development team, the Product Owner, the stakeholders and management. CIMSOLUTIONS has used and implemented the SAFe framework. In particular, the translation and decomposition of epics, features, required technical developments to stories, release management and prioritization of the backlog are set up. In addition, CIMSOLUTIONS brings its expertise in the field of test automation, continuous integration and continuous delivery.

The employees of CIMSOLUTIONS have managed to set up a Proof-of-Concept of the UU integration platform, which is accepted and will be used by all faculties. Implementation is now in full swing.
