Data Center Renovation

The University of Sharjah is a comprehensive academic institution with a distinctive learning style and a global vision. It is pioneer in academia, scientific research and the arts in the UAE and the GCC region. All programs are accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. Some programs such as Engineering, Communication, Science and Business have attained international accreditation.

It is clear that even without the recent increased dependency on digital infrastructure brought about by COVID-19, the demand for services from data centers will continue to increase. The vision of university of Sharjah is to have well-organized, high speed network cables with top-quality solution that scales up to support our future growth and give us the best value of performance. In addition, one of the main goals of Data Center renovation project is to avoid Cable Congestions. To enable Tracing and Port Mapping, a structured cabling infrastructure is essential. This will help to easily trace where each component of the cabling system and solve any issues that the data center might experience.

Monitoring and the visibility of Real Time Reports for our Datacenter Operations is one of our major objectives. The ability to track, analyze, and generate real-time reports will enable to make well informed decisions, a richer and deeper insights into the data center operations and performance metrics.

Project vision includes:
  • Process for organizing cables.
  • Improving the efficiency of processes.
  • Creating procedures.
  • Documentation for ongoing improvement.
  • Diagram for the existing equipment and all types of connections for each RACK.
  • Maintenance manual explaining the addition and modification of DC equipment / racks.
  • Cabling based on ISO management standards in order to manage our data center to the highest professional level.

Ultimately, the data centers renovation is a continuous process to minimizes the risk of downtime and also enhances the overall efficiency of the data center.


As a long-standing educational institution, we create data storage and sharing every day and every year. Increasing the amount of data makes it imperative for us to properly mark and protect this data, which is critical to our business.
UOS ITC is pleased to assist users with the introduction of Data Loss Prevention (DLP) technology to help them know, protect, and prevent data loss, and most importantly not affect their movement and productivity.
DLP is using data labeling or classification to Public, Internal & conditional. End user can label their data on outlook or office app. These labeling will enable users to apply the required protection such as encryption or privileges that will not allow unauthorized users from accessing their data. or even share it with others by emails or even printing. This feature is coming soon, and it will support you to protect your confidential information.


The Identity and Access Management (IAM) program objectives are developing and maintaining governance over the university’s critical services and systems by engaging with stakeholders and business owners, defining, communicating and enforcing access policies, and controlling risks by managing identity life cycles of entities such as people, services, and robots.
IAM has many streams including but not limited to the following:
  • HR
  • Alumni Account Management
  • Banner Access Management
  • Active Directory Management
  • Dental Management System (AxiUm)



Web application firewall exclusively check and protect any breech on UOS critical public facing web services. Dedicated Web application services firewall has capability to detect user behavior and transaction patterns. More sophisticated rules are being planned soon.

For Example Change management is now formalized with specific approval process. Access management, Email security, Web development etc are now with proper policies. IT is working to establish detailed procedures. Regular Sessions maked IT admin familiarizes

Project Year 2020/2021

Banner Upgrade

The technical currency of the core business systems needs to be maintained on an on-going basis. This has been neglected since around 2013 so much-needed upgrades are in progress. The migration of the Banner eco-system to the Ellucian/AWS cloud was the first step in 2018-2019 in achieving technical currency – the migration included a mandatory upgrade to a more recent Banner 8 version. Upgrade to Banner 9 moved the UoS to the most up-to-date releases and enabled the University to take advantage of up-to-the-minute features and functionality. The end result of this project was a Banner 9 technical platform from which the business units will be able to take advantage of the latest functionality through the project's realization initiatives.

Argos Reporting Project

The Evisions Argos reporting solution is an enterprise reporting application designed for Higher Education. It integrates with Banner and other data sources to deliver the information necessary to make timely, better-informed decisions. It is flexible, powerful, and easy-to-use and facilitates the standardization of data elements across the enterprise. The project was initiated and completed in 2018-2019 and since completion of the work, the University administration had a consolidated reporting mechanism across the business units and a well-trained staff to develop and maintain operational reports effectively and efficiently with consistency in the use and interpretation of the data. Business users developed hundreds of reports using the Argos tool.

Banner Workflow Project

Banner Workflow is a process management engine that is designed to work with Ellucian’s Banner ERP modules, namely Banner Student and Banner Finance at the University of Sharjah. There were two main drivers for introducing Banner Workflow at the University in 2018-2019:
  1. The University currently has a high number of Banner customizations which are expensive and cumbersome to maintain. Additionally, these customizations significantly complicate technical upgrades of the system to the extent that Banner has not been upgraded since 2013. Banner Workflow functionality was planned to significantly help in the elimination/reduction of customizations by providing baseline functionality to effectively manage process flows.
  2. Banner Workflow provides the functionality to allow existing manual processes to be automated, as well as to improve the efficiency of semi-automated processes.

UOS Go Mobile App Project

The Ellucian Mobile Foundation services are designed to provide the university with an institutional branded version of Ellucian mobile. The University named its UOS Go 2018-2019.
