We are a team of developers and business analysts responsible for the development, management and maintenance of the student record system (SITS), its web interface, e:Vision and its integrations with other business systems (including Blackboard (VLE), Module catalogue, MyTimetable, SkillsForge). 

We collaborate with teams across the University to provide core student administrative services which support the staff and student experience at York.

Featured Project

We are involved in a large number of projects across the University. 

Project DISCO - 'Design and Implement Service Change and Opportunities'

This is an ambitious project working with staff within Student Administration & Academic Affairs to conduct a detailed review of the existing services in e:Vision and processes performed in SITS with the aim of improving and automating these wherever possible.

Our vision is for all staff to have access to services which are fit for purpose and make administration and work life easier.

The project span is February 2023 through to December 2024.
