This past year, as part of a consultant review of Technology Services, Web Services identified where each staff member spent their time.  There were six main areas: Web Services, Web Applications, Enterprise Portal, Directory Services, Mobile Web Services and Indirect.  Below is a graph representing the percentage of time the 11 member Web Services team spends on each area.

Time by Area

Below is a chart of what each of the 6 areas represents:

Web Services:  Server management, Web CMS, Web Standards (Compliancy Review), VCU Home Page / Emergency Manager, Search (A-Z, Google Search Appliance), and User support.

Web Applications: Application Development [eCommerce, Students, Faculty/Staff, & University], Application Support, and User Support

Mobile Web Services: VCU Mobile – Implementing existing modules, Creating VCU modules, and User Support

One-third of all time is spent providing direct customer support
