July 23, 2020
Hosted by the IT Staff Development team, Tech Talks and InfoSec Chats are part of a series of learning sessions for the IT community promoted through IT Academy’s recommended training and events.
Tech Talks: Using Spinup
Wednesday, August 5
Please join Kay Ratanasaka, Associate Director of Cloud Technologies, and her team who will give an in-depth overview of Yale Spinup (see Yale Spinup Self-Service and the Yale IT Spinup service offering page). The discussion will include setting up your own Spinup virtual server, firewalls, multifactor authentication (MFA), share access, linux servers, windows servers, and all the details you need to know to leverage this technology. Training resources and setting up a free “Try-it” server will also be covered.
Pre-register for the August 5 Tech Talk in Yale’s Training Management System (TMS). Login to Yale’s Virtual Private Network (VPN) may be required.
Tech Talks: Where’s my DSP (Distributed Support Provider)?
Wednesday, August 19
Please join us for a panel discussion with Distributed Support Provider (DSP) managers, DSPs, and Rick Kremer. Rick will lead an insightful look into the Faculty and Staff Desktop Support service offering. We will discuss the four distinct operating models which govern us, where DSPs sit, the wide array of support services they provide, and most importantly, the value DSPs provide as the face of IT to other members of the Yale community.
The goal is to demystify how the team operates so that others in ITS understand how to leverage the Faculty and Staff Desktop Support teams. We will also discuss challenges the team faces to better set expectations.
