Enterprise Projects

Integrated Renewal Program (IRP) | PriSM | Digital Payments Program | Extended Learning Digital Transformation | Peoplesoft Decommissioning

UBC has many substantive IT components underway at any given time. These projects can range from small projects impacting only a group of users to projects that have Faculty wide impacts as well as UBC-wide impacts and which involve many other groups on campus. Below we list the major IT capital projects that are transforming how UBC uses technology to enable teaching and research, and to leverage resources across campus to improve effectiveness. The graph below also reflects the project's status on UBC's major capital IT projects development process.

Integrated Renewal program

UBC is embarking on a multi-year journey to transform our Finance, Human Resources and Student administrative processes and system environments, in support of UBC's new Strategic Plan, Shaping UBC's Next Century: Inspiring people, ideas and actions for a better world. The Integrated Renewal Program is a business process transformation and system implementation program that will leverage the industry-leading cloud enterprise solution Workday to replace our current core administrative systems with a new integrated, user friendly, mobile-enabled platform. To learn more, please visit the Integrated Renewal Program website.

Privacy & Information Security 2.0 (PRISM 2.0)

Privacy and Information Security Management 2.0 (PrISM 2.0) at UBC is a coordinated effort between Risk Management Services, the Office of the University Counsel, and the Office of the CIO. The mandate of PrISM is to enhance the privacy and security of information in electronic and hard-copy format through a series of campaigns related to technology, maintenance, data mapping and risk management, training, awareness, and communications.


The Digital Payments Program (DPP) purpose is to select and implement a modern 3rd party eCommerce/digital payment solution that can modernize, automate and digitize payments for all campuses, faculties and departments. Furthermore, DPP will be the foundation for UBC’s long-term vision to enable a unified payment platform which would incorporate the UBC Card and allow students to pay for a goods and services with a digital wallet regardless of where they are on campus and using whatever payment method they prefer (or charging their account to pay later). To learn more, please visit the Digital Payments Program website.


The Extended Learning Transformation project seeks to enhance the university’s capabilities for delivering Career and Personal Education (CPE) learning courses and programs. Doing so will enable a more modern and efficient approach to CPE student outreach, enrollment, student services and education delivery. This project includes the implementation of a new CPE student system and website for Extended Learning and implementation of the new system at UBCO. The solution will be designed for scalability to support other UBC CPE providers in the future, and subsequent initiatives will add Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Business Intelligence (BI) capabilities.


It has been more than a year now since UBC has moved its Human Resources and Finance functions from PeopleSoft to a Workday solution. PeopleSoft is now scheduled to be retired to reduce costs to the university and allow focus on newly added systems. The project will also ensure historical reporting and dependent tools continue to operate uninterrupted after decommissioning completes.
