This system has been redesigned and name to ORAC, WARS was designed between 2006 and 2008, This system has been designed to help students and staff to access all their IT, IS and resources systems directly from the source without any intermediate dependences. The application displays the information through a simple web interface in order to explain availability of resources and account information (http://wars.kingston.ac.uk).
This is a web based interface which has been developed to help students and staff to identify the location of free workstations within the University. Such information is not readily available from the current IT systems.
These sections allow users to view information live from the SITS database about bookings and availability for rooms in the university.
Is used mainly by support staff (LRC – Helpdesk – Student Services – Security – Faculty Offices) but is accessible by all fulltime Staff. This will display a user’s ID card with photo (Can be used as a form of ID) along with an applet to view the users account information which explains any problems with the user’s account, this displays user’s IT account information, printing balance, course/enrolment, module status and e-Education status [See if Lecturers have given access to module information] and IS helpdesk call [The Last 3].
This is used by support staff, but is accessible by all fulltime staff. You are able to lookup an IP address or A/N of a workstation. This will then display information about the workstation, e.g. who is logged in, specification of the workstation (from Zen Works) and also; if a workstation is within PC Availability system it will display the location.
