Drop In Org Chart on Any Site
Academic Support Resources (ASR) uses a unique approach to integrating read-only enterprise data into web applications and sites that embodies the direction that the Enterprise System Upgrade Project is recommending the institution go--moving closer to the core data structures of our enterprise systems rather than using derivative sources like X.500 or data warehouse views (i.e. DWHR, DWSA, etc). Virtually all of ASR’s web infrastructure is powered by this underlying platform technology. In this project, participants would learn about these tools and be invited to rethink and re-implement ASR’s org chart in a way that could be used by any department at the University.
ASR’s Org Chart is here:
If there is sufficient interest in this project, ASR will share our data integration tools and the code behind this org chart on at github.umn.edu/asrweb several weeks before Campus Code Fest to provide folks the opportunity to hack on this themselves beforehand if interested.
