Technical Deep-Dive

Project Glue is an initiative to create a common, secure, easily deployable method of accessing and updating data across collaborative applications such as ERP/SIS and Learning Management, among others. Using an adaptor approach, Project Glue endeavors to enable integration of all CCC Chancellor’s Office-sponsored technology initiatives without putting additional burden on local college IT departments.

Following a general session overview, three concurrent tracks will dive deeper into Project Glue for Banner schools, Project Glue for Colleague schools, and how the use of cloud-based disaster recovery, business continuity and remote desktop sharing can bolster college IT departments.
