Axess serves more than 30,000 users each day as the online portal to Stanford’s student, human resources, and training systems. When the current portal first went live in summer 2013, it was by no means considered "finished." That 2013 rollout was just the first in a planned series of releases intended to keep the portal evolving progressively, adding functionality and enhancing usability over time.
Working closely with key business offices, University IT is using an Agile-based development model to plan, develop, and deploy these ongoing enhancement releases. The latest rolled out last month, and two more are set to go live later this year. Key features of the 2015 releases include the following:
The portal enhancements reflect user feedback gathered from more than 2,500 students, faculty, and staff members and a review of tickets submitted through HelpSU. The core team driving the enhancements includes representatives from Administrative Systems, Financial Management Services, the Registrar's Office, and University Human Resources.
