We Are Project Success!
What is Project Management? Simply put, projects are a temporary effort to accomplish
a given want or need and are made up of a beginning stage, an effort stage, and an
ending stage. Each stage is generally unique, requiring sometimes specific skills
and resources that don’t ordinarily team together. Organizing these efforts and resources
is project management.
By facilitating communication across the ITS Portfolio as well as among project teams, applying a common and custom process for project management, and monitoring project timelines, expectations, and deliverables, the PMO Office is able to manage successful projects from start to finish.
Better management yields better results which means Project Success!
In an effort to provide a standard platform for student engagement and involvement across Recruiting and Admissions, Student Records, Student Accounts, and Financial Aid, ITS is moving from our legacy mainframe and aging applications to a comprehensive one-stop solution.

Identity & Access Management
Faced with aging directory and access management systems, LSU is moving forward with providing a new Identity and Access Management Solution. Moving to a commercially supported and cloud-hosted solution, this project will migrate and streamline LSU's Identity and Access Management enterprise-wide.
Save the Mainframe Data
Again, with the current mainframe solution no longer a viable solution for data storage for ITS applications and product integrations, ITS will be migrating and storing LSU Community data in a large-scale enterprise solution.
ITS PMO Process.
How do we ensure Project Success?
The PMO Office prides itself on our custom process developed specifically for the needs of the LSU Community in accordance with the LSU Strategic goals and Operational Excellence.
