Dillon Connor, Associate Solution Consultant
In my time at GSI, I’ve worked on 3 projects. The first was to determine what a current security model grants access to, as well as to provide analysis to the client. The second consisted of ongoing maintenance for a client’s current model while a new, best-practice model wass created. The third project consisted of implementing a brand-new security model, while not supporting their pre-existing model. These three projects have shown me the full life-cycle of a security project and taught me lessons that can be applied to projects for any client.

One of our valued GSI Clients is going live on EnterpriseOne 9.2 in the month of July. As they move from the E900 implementation to the new E920, they were looking for a way to change all of the user passwords to a generic password as part of the Go-Live tasks. This would force the users to enter a new password on Monday morning, the first time they log on to E920. The plan is to eliminate the calls to the help desk.

When it comes to moving to the Cloud, firms have a lot to consider. We have discussed many of these items in previous articles, and depending on the industry, these firms will have different requirements for compliance and IT governance.

Over the past couple of years, the GENIUS product has been continuously growing to add new monitors. Most months, our GSInsider column takes a deep dive into the most recent additions to GENIUS. This month we thought it would be a good time to recap all of the available custom monitors.
