Room:      MC 2009
Speakers:  Bill Baer, Greg Parks

The Housing Management Enterprise (HoME) system intent includes enabling alignment and improved horizontal integration of existing vertical-silo activities on a technology platform that UW Housing can continue to evolve and improve internally. The use of SharePoint combined with Silverlight componentry yields a beneficial combination of open platform and custom functionality, and is fully in line with Microsoft's Windows 8/WinRT app-based roadmap which centers on C# and XAML (Silverlight's languages) as first class platform languages. The use of RSS/OData services for data access provides a standardized and open interface to data from any platform in any department that may be beneficial or necessary to uWaterloo.
