The platform that manages the current intranet, SharePoint, will no longer have support available for their underlying technologies. It was already an outdated system, so it became necessary to make a change before other limitations started to appear.
For the last month, both university and health system employees had the opportunity to provide feedback on the replacement to PAWS, but more designated feedback processes for different areas of the enterprise will be ongoing.
Please be aware that it will take some time before all of the current links on PAWS are transferred to the new platform. All needed information will continue to be available through PAWS, but over the next several months, when you click on a link, you may be redirected to the matching, or close matching OUCampus page.
The new homepage is scheduled to be fully migrated by Oct. 1, when the decommissioning of PAWS will begin.
The move to my.augusta.edu is anticipated to be an easy shift, and will ultimately provide more stability, flexibility and better long-term support with development options.
Due to the amount of data that will need to be migrated from PAWS to my.augusta.edu, this will be an ongoing process. Regular updates will be communicated to the university community, so make sure to look for updates in the coming months.
You can read more about the intranet project online, and get more detailed information for PAWS publishers, PAWS users and a project timeline.
