UW Web Services provide access to common business data through flexible, secure and highly available infrastructure. Web Services allow individual developers, colleges and departments to decrease development costs through reuse of cross platform and time tested enterprise application building blocks.

The behind the scenes complexity of our many purpose built, off-the-shelf, SAAS, and Cloud systems can be hurdles to building a connected enterprise. UW Web Services allow our community of systems to reuse integration investments enabling an interconnected web of applications.

Web Services power the modern agile connected business system. Web Services enable synchronization in real time across every generation of system, platform and programming language; which can be utilized server side, client side and mobile.

This ability to utilize existing integrations enables boundless innovative solutions across every domain and system; empowering businesses to focus on delivering solutions and not how to source data.

Use Cases

Electronic GradeBook - Web Services decreases costs and simplifies processes for the UW by providing critical data and functionality required for electronic grading. Web Services reduces the many manual steps required to process a grade, by linking an instructor to a student record via Catalyst Web Tools. By eliminating the use of Scantron bubble sheets and its associated complex processes, a more efficient grading work-flow is now possible.

m.UW iPhone - Web Services enables key marketing and technology strategies for the UW by providing critical data to support development of the UW iPhone application. Web Services provides a low-cost and simplified method of making data for the iPhone available, connecting real-time UW course data to mobile devices. These technologies position UW to meet the changing demands of future students.

Departmental IT Efficiency - Web Services, in addition to other data delivery solutions, will help further eliminate the need of many redundant data stores that store central data. The elimination of these data stores reduces departmental costs required to support the redundant data stores. In addition, security is improved by storing the data centrally in one location only. Both of which will position the UW for a more sustainable future.
