Identity Management Project Scope Comes into View

The Enterprise Identity Management (EIM) project continued making progress throughout 2022 with the addition of new talent, knowledge, and skills. The year concluded with a redefined scope focused on what is needed to initially launch the new foundational EIM architecture and provide streamlined services across campus. The project’s launch scope has shifted components of the identity management solution to the EIM service roadmap, to be prioritized as ongoing service updates and enhancements in the future. This change has allowed the project team to establish a strong foundation which can be easily maintained, updated and scaled to future needs.

The project’s design, scope and impacts have been informed by conversations with campus technical, student and human resources partners along with EIM Project Governance. The documentation of current processes related to identity management started in 2021 for EIM and continues today, with input from IT, HR and student support services perspectives.

Committed and talented campus and Health experts helped document business processes currently in place. Well-versed in their specific operational processes and needs, these subject matter experts, or SMEs, and the work they accomplished consisted of:

  • 120 subject matter experts (SMEs) with representation from over 50 campus departments  
  • Approximately 2,462 people hours of knowledge documentation
  • 74 review sessions

In these review sessions, SMEs identified the current processes in use to support departmental functions, activities and unique tasks:

  • 284 systems and applications identified as currently in use
  • 17 significant variations in employee processes among units
  • 41 significant variations in student processes from division-to-division
  • Documented access needs and identities, wish list items and pain points related to current processes and systems

Thank you to all the SMEs who have offered their time and expertise to the EIM project.

Additional project teamwork has included:

  • Surveys conducted to understand awareness of identity management and the EIM project
  • Publication of eight foundational news articles 
  • Creation of an informational video “Identity in a Nutshell” (which has had 400 views) 

Finance System Optimization Takes Flight

The Oracle Financials Cloud, implemented July 1, 2020, is transitioning from post-implementation stabilization into optimization. While systems are fully operating, many campus users are still adjusting to the complexity and controls of a modern financial system. Listening to end-user feedback, changes to system figuration, process automation and more robust reports were implemented. Updates, resources, feedback, and more are all consolidated into the website. As part of the optimization efforts, the leadership team:

  • Developed a support strategy centered around 1) Providing support teams for cleanup 2) Investing in staffing and training and 3) Optimizing processes and systems 
  • Launched the Finance Help Line as an additional real-time support destination

Goal 3: Continually Enhance Research Services

Building a Stronger Research Community

Research IT Services provides facilitation and integration support to faculty and other researchers at UC San Diego, including Health Sciences, professional schools, and divisions and departments. We have found areas of research need, focusing on gaps in research services and support, particularly those on the long tail of research with little to no support.

UC San Diego Research Cluster

A few significant programs this year have provided researchers with solutions to their project needs. The UC San Diego Research Cluster is a small starter cluster attached to the instructional Data Science Machine Learning Platform (DSMLP) environment. Researchers are encouraged to use it as a starter place to become familiar with cluster computing and use containerization. Research IT Services manages the cluster environment with Educational Technology Services staff and provides custom containers and scripting optimization.


"The Data Science Machine Learning Platform cluster has been invaluable to me in my research, which involves training and deploying deep learning models for image generation. Computational artists don’t typically have access to large funding sources, but this research requires more extensive computing resources and configurability than would be practical using low-end commercial cloud services. The ability to access a no-cost, configurable GPU cluster at UCSD has been key in allowing me to develop my work this year. The Research Cluster helps fill an important research need between low-end and high-end computing cluster resources."   

- Dr. Amy Alexander, Professor, Visual Arts

Universal Scale Storage (USS) and Globus Secure Research Data Management 

In partnership with the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), Research IT Services brokers Universal Scale Storage (USS) in sub-allocations of 25TB of the full 200TB brick at no additional cost to the researcher. In addition, Research IT also provides secure file transfer and data management via Globus to ease data movement for research data. The UC San Diego High Assurance Globus annual subscription is provided through a joint effort of Research IT Services, SDSC, and UC San Diego Health Sciences.

"As Principal Investigator of the UCSD National Eye Institute funded Center Core Grant for Vision Research, I want to thank Research IT services for providing Universal Scale Storage and Globus file transfer resources to our investigators. Our deidentified ophthalmic images represent an in vivo 3D rendering of retinal structure and require large, secure storage and transfer systems. The resources provided by Research IT in this area enable efficient and cost-effective management tools so that our large medical imaging datasets can be leveraged to build AI models for the detection and clinical management of various eye diseases." 

- Linda Zangwill, Professor, Department of Ophthalmology 

Research Computing and Data Support

Supporting research and researchers is the mission of Research IT Services. The ability for members of this team to consult and provide technical expertise to research projects at UC San Diego is paramount to their success in moving research forward.

In one instance, Research IT Services has been working with Dr. Phillip Bunting, a Chemistry and Biochemistry postdoctoral scholar in the Rinehart Group, to develop MAGdb, a Python framework that puts FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) data principles at the start of the research data lifecycle. MAGdb's design enables individual researchers to manage their datasets within a locally-managed repository without running additional services, while the base metadata attributes support data publication to repositories, including Dryad, Zenodo, and others.

"In the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UC San Diego, we have a wide variety of research expertise and all of it can benefit from the work that Research IT does. My research team is regularly faced with an overabundance of complex, diverse data forms that we need to store, manipulate, and synthesize to understand and optimize the materials we make in the lab. When we came to Research IT, we had a plan we were passionate about and very little expertise in implementing it successfully. Through Research Director Claire Mizumoto, we were able to work with Principal Systems Integration Engineer Richard Wagner, who helped us prototype a research solution that was accessible to non-IT experts, compliant with data and cybersecurity standards, and generalizable far beyond our specific use case. Currently, we are applying for funding under the NSF CSSI Program to expand the scope of this project. IT support for researchers is a vital component for any university looking to maintain a top-tier science program, and our team at UCSD gives us an edge!"

- Dr. Jeffrey Rinehart, Assistant Professor, Chemistry and Biochemistry  

Research Data Support Activity

A major part of the research lifecycle is project-related data. Research IT Services recognized that computing is only one piece of the research puzzle. That data requires more attention to the emerging compliance requirements, regulatory mandates, and conditions for open research and FAIR Principles. Research IT Services continues to grow its experience to support research and researchers by expanding its expertise to assist with research data needs.

The UC Global Food Initiative (GFI) project aims to strengthen food systems research tackling tough issues of food justice, security, resilience, and more. Each UC campus received funds to create a Campus Collaboration Center, including a campus “expertise and collaboration asset map.” Individual campus asset maps, or galleries, are collections of campus-specific faculty working on food-related research. They are cross-referenced with their publications found in OpenAlex and verified against the campus faculty directory.

Research IT’s work on this project included mining faculty roster information from UCPath data held in UC San Diego’s Employee Activity Hub (EAH). Several queries and resulting reports were cleaned and combined to render a list of 5,273 unique entries with specific characteristics. The final dataset was used to create this SuAVE visualization that can be filtered using many dataset attributes, including faculty name, campus department, and publication keywords such as food insecurity, obesity, food bank, etc.

"As a Senior Teaching Professor, I have come to rely upon the LimeSurvey-SuAVE platform's unique utility for data collection, visualization and analysis that excites students, faculty and community partners engaged in experiential learning. One of the 'asset maps' we created with this system is an online searchable gallery of all faculty at UC San Diego doing some form of research concerning food and food systems. Colleagues in UCSD's Information Technology Services played a crucial role in helping us create this gallery based partly on Employee Activity Hub data. The SuAVE gallery highlights UC San Diego researchers and their publications addressing UC Global Food Initiative (UC GFI) topics. We are also working with ITS to support hundreds of undergraduate students in courses I teach about cities, climate change and sustainable development. These students create online SuAVE 'asset maps' focused on trees, green infrastructure, vacant lots, and community gardens. These asset maps are robustly interactive relational databases that enable students to see the utility of their crowdsourced data being put to good use! The LimeSurvey-SuAVE platform is a powerful socio-technical system connecting student course work, research and community-engaged experiential learning."

- Dr. Keith Pezzoli, LSOE, Urban Studies and Planning.

The Research IT Services team prides itself on the personalized attention it gives to research and researchers at UC San Diego. In addition to the researcher consultation services, the team continues to support the faculty, staff, postdoc, and graduate and undergraduate students in many other training and development and research service areas. They continue to conduct Carpentries training for foundational programming in R and Python and team with the Office of Information Assurance to work to secure the research lab environments under the Cybersecurity Certification for Research (CCR) program. They provide commercial cloud onboarding and consultation support for AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.

Goal 4: Focus on Cybersecurity

Committed to a Secure and Safe IT Environment

UC San Diego supports an IT environment that adheres to sound principles of security. The Office of Information Assurance is charged with ensuring the secure handling, availability and confidentiality of all forms of information at UC San Diego. 

Recent accomplishments include: 

  • To further secure login credentials and system security, campus and Health users changed more than 100,000 Active Directory passwords to meet new length and complexity requirements. Additionally, the password change application was rewritten and modified, and now also incorporates multi-factor authentication. Password changes are also inspected for weak or known compromised passwords, with approximately 10% blocked.
  • In response to an internal analysis, remote access protocols most associated with ransomware attacks were moved behind the campus VPN, resulting in an 80% attack-risk reduction. 
  • Targeted users achieved a 97.9% success rate of not responding to malicious emails via "mock phishing" campaigns.
  • Continued with steady progress on the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program, including completing the technical components of the CMMC cloud enclave. Currently working with certified assessors to schedule a formal assessment for CMMC Level 2 certification.
  • The Cybersecurity Certification for Research program has now certified over $200 million in research programs.
  • As part of an IT Services internal patching initiative, a steady state of managed servers with a critical vulnerability was lowered by an order of magnitude; the current baseline of 4%-5% maximum is challenged by the approximately 100 vulnerabilities announced daily.
  • Campuswide, more than 900 applications now use Shibboleth for single sign-on and Duo two-step login.
  • The Regulated Research Community of Practice grant (NSF220128) transferred to UC San Diego; the total value of grants brought to UC San Diego by the Office of Information Assurance now exceeds $1 million.
  • Finally, OIA is now in its third year of sponsoring the campus Women in Cybersecurity (WiCyS) program.

  • 160,398 tickets closed
  • 84% service-level agreement success

Leaning Out and Leveling Up

IT Services leverages the Lean Six Sigma (LSS) methodology to make continuous improvement a core foundation of work. New hires complete an LSS Yellow Belt (beginner) certification within a few months of starting, while all managers and service owners are required to pursue more advanced training via Green and Black Belts. Additionally, the department sponsors scholarships for other staff managers who qualify. 

Since 2016, formal Lean Six Sigma projects have resulted in the following outcomes:

  • $6 million total savings
  • 8+ staff reallocations
  • 103,000 hours saved
  • $50,000+ increased revenue/cost avoidance

IT Services’ commitment to continuous improvement underscores a larger campuswide movement, all in support of UC San Diego’s Strategic Plan Goal 5: Supportive Infrastructure. Goal 5 is summarized as, “Creating an agile, sustainable, and supportive infrastructure by ensuring a dedication to service, people and financial stewardship.” The full text of Goal 5 uses the word “efficient” (or a derivation) 13 times. 

More information about UC San Diego’s campuswide efforts and culture are detailed on the continuous improvement website

Finally, everything comes together at the annual Process Palooza conference, co-sponsored by IT Services and returning to the UC San Diego campus in March 2023.
