Scheduled Vendor Maintenance

Pitt Information Technology partners with outside vendors to provide reliable, secure computing experiences at the University. These vendors can require regular maintenance periods to ensure the strength of their infrastructure, security, and data. This maintenance can occasionally mean downtime and unavailability for brief time spans.

Types of Scheduled Maintenance

Routine

This pro-active maintenance is performed monthly to address the security, stability, and reliability of the Student Information System.

Image Update

This quarterly maintenance is application-specific. It addresses bug-fixes, financial aid regulatory updates, and enhancements to the Student Information System.

Non-Routine

Non-Routine maintenance is scheduled as needed, with as much advance notice as possible. It may include time-sensitive critical patches, Database enhancements, or PeopleTools upgrades.
