CITES and Administrative Information Technology Services (AITS) have partnered together to make it easier to find information about service outages at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. AITS designed and maintains the new System Status tool. Both AITS and CITES will use this new tool to post outage updates for their services.
By using just one status system, it should be easier for everyone at the Urbana campus to learn more about a service outage by eliminating the need to know which status page to check based on which department on campus runs the service. The new tool also offers email notifications that can alert subscribers to new outages and outage updates without having to visit the site.
