If you selected Chancellor's Office, legal or collective bargaining requirement, please provide details about the policy, law or executive memorandum that’s driving the mandate.
We need to remove the software since we are not renewing the contract. If we don't remove the software and issues come up during Salesforce updates, we will not have vendor support to resolve the errors.
What is the reason for the project being completed by the deadline?
Describe the business requirement or reason for the project deadline.
To prepare for the related project to pull Orientation Event data in from VZO, we will need to map the data to the existing targetx event fields

Project Impact

How will you measure the impact of this project?
What are some metrics or KPIs that will be used to measure success? Think about the five metrics to measure: quality, quantity, timeliness, cost, and customer satisfaction.
The Division of IT will no longer have to pay for Fonteva licenses which equate roughly 7K. Additionally, the overhead to test the third party application three times a year in preparation for the Salesforce Winter, Spring, and Summer updates will be removed, saving 20 hours a year.
What are the consequences of not doing this project?
For example: direct significant negative consequences to the University, unable to conduct basic services; failure to resolve customer complaints or requests; loss of opportunity for improved service delivery or efficiency. Please explain.
We will have out dated software with no vendor support running on the Salesforce platform. If issues come up we will be on our own to fix them. Furthermore, the data overhead to retain the objects and their data is costly.

The solution type translates to the level of impact on IT staffing and technology maintenance. Based on consultation with your IT representative, pick the best fit for your proposed solution.
Decommission of an existing system


The primary user of Fonteva Event Management is now using VZO and we need to decommission the software and migrate the Orientation data off of the Fonteva objects in Salesforce. The removal of the Fonteva application and objects will clean up the Salesforce Org and reduce overhead. The Customer Engagement team will also move the Orientation event data so it remains reportable utilizing the TargetX event objects. This project will dovetail into another project with Orientation where we will pull in new Orientation event data to assist with reporting and communications.
