LAMP/WIMP Platform Upgrade

The University has successfully built new services for LAMP and WIMP applications.

The scope of this project was to build new services for LAMP (Linux) and WIMP (WIMP) applications.  The current servers were reaching end of life (EOL) and so had to be upgraded to newer servers and software versions to ensure adequate support and security. The project built the platform in advance of the final EOL support end and delivered a new infrastructure successfully upgrading one application.

Following the success of the pilot we then carried on with a number of business areas and completed all the applications on the EOL servers, for example:

•             Student Records

•             Undergraduate/Postgraduate Degree Finder

•             Campus Maps

•             Human Resources Reward Calculator

•             Learning, Teaching and Web
