5. Mobile Device Management (MDM) Update
There was general discussion regarding the results of the Subcommittee’s City-wide survey of departments’ MDM business requirements.
While a decision was not reached on a single vendor or vendors, it was generally agreed that the standard should include all requirements marked by departments as “must have.” Additionally, Subcommittee members decided that further discussion and research into tiered pricing and enterprise agreements (similar to the City’s agreement negotiated with Microsoft) was needed.
6. Discussion: Enterprise Architecture Principles
Mr. Aggio distributed the Subcommittee’s most recent draft Enterprise Architecture Principles and solicited written feedback from members.
He noted that language within Principle #4 had been expanded and that he would continue to work closely with COIT staff to track changes and feedback submitted by Subcommittee members.
7. Discussion and Action: Hardware Standard – Switches and Routers
Mr. Aggio led a general discussion on the cost and management benefits of hardware standardization and shared with the Subcommittee a draft that narrowed switch and router options to two vendors.
Several Subcommittee members shared concerns specific to their departments and cited potential conflicts with City contract administration and procurement rules.
Due to time constraints, it was determined that the discussion should be continued at a later date.
8. Public Comment
There was no public comment.
The meeting was adjourned at 3:55 p.m.
