Contract with Hannon Hill Complete!

November 20, 2009

The contract with Hannon Hill for Cascade Server WCMS is complete! This paves the way for Phase II of the project to go into high gear in the New Year. The project team is excited to finally be able to roll up their sleeves and start the implementation phase!

In October, we discovered that the UC Office of the President (UCOP) was working on a licensing agreement with Hannon Hill that would make reduced license costs available for campuses system-wide. We decided to wait and take advantage of the better terms UCOP could negotiate. With completion of the UCOP agreement this week, it was a snap to finalize our own contract.

Meanwhile, during October and into November, the project team has been busy designing the technical infrastructure and working with migration partners to understand the size and complexity of their sites.
