The University of Zurich uses various SAP business applications for teaching, studies, and central services, in particular the SAP solution Student Lifecycle Management and the SAP standard solutions for finance and controlling, human resources, and logistics. The range of SAP-based online services for students, the teaching staff, and employees is constantly being expanded and extended to include mobile technologies. In addition, there are numerous related non-SAP systems, such as an archive solution for optical documents (e.g. certificates, scanned invoices, etc.). In addition, a wide range of applications have been developed specifically for the needs of UZH itself. All of these applications are summarized under the term SAPplus business applications.
Together with the faculties and departments, the Central IT analyses individual requirements, designs business processes, evaluates, develops and enhances applications, and ensures smooth operation after their introduction.
