Dear IST Colleagues,
Updating you with the latest news on the 2850 Telegraph move. We've spent the last 4 weeks getting new construction estimates based on our lower density plan, as well as evaluating electrical estimates to see whether we could reduce costs there. We have also started working on the RFP that will be needed for us to explore purchasing used furniture for at least some of our furniture needs, and we won’t have info back on that until sometime in January.

It was great to see so many of you (around 80 One IT staff total) gathered at our Dec. 6 Open Seminar. Thank you for your good questions, suggestions, and conversation! This month’s digest provides a summary of our last gathering for 2018 and some updates as we head into the new year.

Over the past week we have received reports of unwanted flyers appearing on campus printers. Our Security team has confirmed the offending material did not come from within our campus community. The messages are part of an internet-wide advertising campaign which is now being generally reported globally. We condemn the offensive messages contained in the printouts and are committed to ensuring a safe working and learning environment for everyone here at UC Berkeley.

Learn from Cisco professionals about the new UC contract with EPlus for Cisco procurement and about UC’s formal strategic relationship with Cisco. You may think of routing and switching as the core Cisco technologies. Well, over the past few years Cisco has made significant acquisitions in the areas of security, data center, cloud, collaboration, and analytics. Rather than a technical overview of each product, the webinar will provide a high-level description of the products, services, and software, and all areas where you can utilize the new contract pricing and rebate program.

One IT Colleagues,
As we move into fall we reflect on recent productive changes the campus has gone through, progress the One IT community has made implementing the ReIT Strategic Plan, and the work ahead of us as we near the end of 2018. This month’s digest shares some major milestones on tactics, the development of the Diversity and Inclusion strategy, and a great way for you to share successes about your project.

The ITSM Program has been working on multiple strands of work over the last year: Incident Management, Major Incident Management, Knowledge Management, Service Request Fulfillment, Change Management, and developing an underlying data model to support these processes.
Dear IST Colleagues--
There have been some new developments on the IST move front since our last update that we want to share with you. Because of the concerns we’ve heard from you about the density of the original floor plan, we are modeling different options, which would include keeping some teams at Banway and the 3rd floor of Warren to make the 2850 space less crowded.

Every new cyber-attack or scam seems to be accompanied by a barrage of cybersecurity tips, pointers, dos and don’ts that we’re expected to follow to keep ourselves and our families safe and secure. While sometimes specific tips and awareness messages are important, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and tune it all out.
