UIS Structure

Zajištění dostupnosti systému Administrace, metodická a uživatelská podpora systémů

Following systems are part of the native intranet core: study agenda administration system IS/STAG (programmed and distributed from University of West Bohemia), e-learning – UNIFOR (basic development for UP by an external company), and ERP system for human-resources, finance and record of assets – SAP (the most used commercial system in the world, developed by SAP A.G.). UIS core systems are complemented by other satellite UIS models:

  • STAG - CW (CourseWare), MSUP (Small STAG UP)
  • SAP - FaMa (Facility Management), CP (travel orders), ARIS (organization and processes)

Following modules are operated beside the UIS core systems: 

  • ESS – electronic filing service
  • IGA – integrated grant agency
  • Management IS – statistic output for annual reports
  • IK – ID card evidence and related services
  • Autoprovoz – evidence and costs of vehicle operations
  • Virtual shop – shop using virtual credit card

All of the aforementioned UIS modules are covered by university portal built on WebSphere commercial platform. However, SAP is the only module which will not be fully integrated in portal because of license policy and data safety. Furthermore, there is a whole packet of web services, which can ensure the output of information requested in portal environment not only to SAP users but also to employees and students. Basic authentication and authorization application is LDAP based on Tivoli Directory Server 6.2. 

Basic UIS structure is shown in attachment no. 2
