For individuals who wish to request the use of Apple Mac computers there must be a business justification provided to do so. The business justification will be reviewed by central IT to ensure that the right equipment is being purchased for the required work. This includes any equipment being funded by an external grant.
Until further developments take place, Apple Mac users will not be able to use the following business applications, which operate in our standard windows environment:
SAINT (although e:vision web access works cross-platform)
Business Objects development (although output reports should be accessible)
E5 (there is a major upgrade planned to deliver web access from April 2015)
Syllabus Plus (which is a very focused timetabling application)
RMS (although this focused service desk system is also due for replacement)
When deciding on a desktop computer platform particularly for office based staff handling student or financial systems, managers and budget holders must understand that the Windows PC platform is recommended by IT services and Purchasing at this time.
Most UoB multi functional printers (devices) are now covered by a service maintenance contract serviced by The DTP Group which includes the provision of toner cartridges. Toner cartridges for all other printers (devices) not covered by this agreement can be purchased via the e-marketplace.
