Brown Bag Lunch Today to Highlight Project One

Project One, the Workday project for the University of Arkansas System has officially launched!

During today's IT Services Brown Bag lunch, Polly Parnell, associate CIO and the U of A project coordinator, and Donna Carter, U of A change management, will provide an overview of Project One, share updates and answer questions about the project.  

Participants are invited to bring their lunch and join in person from noon to 1 p.m. today, Thursday, Dec. 6, in ARKU 512 or join online with WebEx.

The goal of this project is to bring the member institutions of the UA System onto a common ERP platform for Human Capital Management and Financial Management systems. This will allow better alignment and easier exchange of data between institutions in the UA System.

This is part of a series of Brown Bag lunches highlighting digital literacy and campus projects. The next IT Services Brown Bag lunch will be on Wednesday, Dec. 12. The topic for this lunch will be understanding digital signage usage on campus.
